Investigation Discovery will debut a two-hour special focusing on the case of convicted serial killer Henry Louis Wallace in late July.
Bad Henry, produced by Blackfin, will use never-before-heard interrogation tapes and testimony from family members of victims to tell the story of Wallace’s two-year reign of terror between 1992-1994 in Charlotte, North Carolina. It will also detail the efforts of Detective Garry McFadden (pictured), the only African American on the homicide squad at the time, and his team at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg police department to bring the killer, responsible for the murders of 10 young African American women, to justice.
Blackfin’s Geno McDermott is executive producing the project with showrunner Greg Palmer. For Investigation Discovery Diana Sperrazza is executive producer.
“The complete story of Henry Louis Wallace and the panic he unleashed in the city of Charlotte has never been told on television before,” said Henry Schleiff, group president of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, Destination America and American Heroes Channel, in a statement. “Bad Henry showcases the fearless tenacity of Garry McFadden and his team in their efforts to capture this killer, providing justice, and most importantly, closure to the victims and their families.”
The special debuts on ID on July 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
