'Deadly Recall' Returns With More Memorable Cases in Season 2 (VIDEO)
Detective Pat Postiglione uses his incredible memory to solve incomprehensible homicides in the new season of Deadly Recall. Some call it photographic, some call it unnervingly specific, but what everyone knows is that when Det. Postiglione sees a crime scene, it will be with him for life.
Now Investigation Discovery (ID) is pulling six new cases out of Nashville PD’s vault, sharing more stories of Det. Postiglione’s vital memory and unflagging devotion to uncovering the truth. In Season 1, viewers could not forget Det. Postiglione’s investigations, but this season, every case is a crime to remember. Deadly Recall’s second season premieres on Wednesday, April 15, on Investigation Discovery.
“This show began as a series about Det. Postiglione’s unfathomable memory, but it has evolved into so much more,” says Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. “Indeed, our viewers can’t get enough of these compelling mysteries and how Det. Postiglione uses his unique faculties to deduce the often seemingly hidden intricacies of a crime scene to solve the case.”
This season will include Det. Postiglione’s most well-known cases, including the shocking murder of an NFL star, a triple homicide just steps from a college campus, and the unknowing discovery of not one, but two serial killers on the loose. By piecing together clues from the crime scene, Det. Postiglione uses his sharp memory and Sherlock-Holmes-style reasoning to find what everyone is waiting for: the true culprit.
