U.S. net LMN will revisit the crimes of American serial killer Gary Ridgway (pictured) through the perspective of his family in a two-hour documentary entitled My Uncle is the Green River Killer.

Between 1982 and 1998, Ridgway killed at least 48 women in California and Washington – all while living with unassuming family members – and was labeled the “Green River Killer” because of the site where some victims were discovered. Ridgway was caught in 2001 and sentenced to life in prison in 2003.

Set to debut on December 3 at 9 p.m. EST/PST, the T Group Productions-made documentary will see the serial killer’s family – led by Ridgway’s niece Kristen Ridgway – confront him for the first time since his incarceration.

The family will aim to get answers about the killer’s motives as well as the whereabouts of the remaining women whose bodies have not yet been accounted for. Ridgway’s family will also reach out to the victims’ families.

The special is exec produced by T Group’s Jenny Daly and Rob Dorfmann, while Laura Fleury and Peter Tarshis are exec producing  for LMN.
