Veteran Atlanta Homicide Detectives Take Viewers Inside Their Most Bizarre Murder Investigations
(SILVER SPRING, MD) May 13, 2019 – TV One’s gripping true crime series ATL HOMICIDE returns for a second season, premiering on Monday, June 17 at 9 p.m ET/8C. Veteran homicide detectives David Quinn and Vince Velazquez of the Atlanta Police Department are sharing some of their grittiest stories, giving audiences first-hand accounts of real-life murder investigations. Thirty-year Atlanta PD veterans, Quinn and Velazquez spent fifteen of those years working side by side in the homicide division.
Part of the network’s “True Crime Mondays,” ATL HOMICIDE follows detectives Quinn and Velazquez as they recount their personal experiences solving cases, alongside dramatic re-creations that place viewers in the front seat of the action. Tackling hundreds of cold cases together from everyday ‘who-done-it’ scenarios to high-profile murder mysteries and more, the two have an undeniable chemistry in the streets of “Hotlanta” – and a track record of putting murderers behind bars. ATL HOMICIDE follows the detectives as they search for the truth in an investigation, seeking to deliver justice on behalf of the victims of these often gruesome crimes.
ATL HOMICIDE flips the true crime genre on its head. Each one-hour episode focuses on one dramatic murder case told in heavy re-creation. Viewers will experience each case as if it’s happening in the moment.
Some of the cases the detectives tackle this season are:
On a hot summer night in early August, two assailants attempt to rob a man’s house, who’s rumored to have a great deal of cash.
