Why Should I Watch? A fresh newcomer to the web series world, #WhoKilledHeather is Fischer's debut series in conjunction with Radar Studios. The murder mystery series is a great addition to a community that more recently has been seeing more diversity in genres.
The series follows Andrew Olson (Raymond), a university student who after finding some old drone footage of a dead body, decides to open up the investigation of Heather (Toriumi), a fellow student's death, for a school project. Because nothing says exciting for a semester project like investigating someone's dead, especially considering the fact that someone's already been convicted for the crime.
This is where things get interesting, with the help of Max (McClellan) who we find out early on works for the local Waverly, Iowa Police Department, the dynamic duo start to find holes in the investigation. For one, it doesn't make sense that Heather's convicted killer, her boyfriend, would kill her in a field and dump her body in a burning dumpster. Secondly, Waverly was once known for its infamous Waverly Butcher whose MO was killing women and dressing them in similar looking pink dresses and leaving them in fields. What was Heather found wearing? Yep, a pink dress.
We won't go into spoilers too much since the series isn't even halfway through but we know fans of anything murder mystery and Twin Peak even, will love this series. I'd say this is a bit darker than a Laura Hollis investigation but it's definitely got its pop cultural references to give you just the right amount of humor needed for a serial killer feature.
Where Can I Watch? The 36-episode series is currently airing with 5 episodes thus far. You can catch new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday at 4 PM CST on the official YouTube channel. Take a look and let us know what you think!
