Spokane crime story airs on HLN’s ‘Forensic Files II’ on Sunday night

UPDATED: Sun., March 29, 2020

The true crime stories featured on “Forensic Files” have been a longtime TV viewing favorite – it’s a series in which I could watch the 30-minute episodes (less when forwarding through the commercials) for hours and hours and hours on end.

Now a new group of episodes has been filmed and is airing as “Forensic Files II,” and today’s episode, “Last Gasp (Clay Starbuck),” is set in Spokane and broadcasts on HLN at 10 p.m. PT/ET.

In a news release, the episode description for “Last Gasp” is as follows: “After a young mom is found brutally murdered in her home, investigators find startling clues on her cellphone that could lead to her killer.”

Starbuck was sentenced to life in 2013, The Spokesman-Review reported. Click here for a teaser of the episode, which most likely will have repeat airings.

“Forensic Files II” is 16 new, half-hour episodes of the successful crime and investigations docu-series “Forensic Files” that airs Sundays with two half-hour, back-to-back shows starting at 10 p.m. ET/PT under the new name “Forensic Files II” produced by and airing on HLN.

The original “Forensic Files,” which stopped production in 2011, returned on Feb. 23 with episodes true to the original format, content and continuity but featuring advancements in investigative technology and production. The series is narrated by Bill Camp (“Dark Waters,” “Joker,” “The Outsider”).

HLN is a CNN Worldwide network reaching more than 90 million households.
