Seven has released a First Look of Homicide with Ron Iddles.
Homicide with Ron Iddles goes behind the news headlines on a minute-by-minute journey with Australian’s greatest detective, Ron Iddles, as he searches for truth.
The master detective reveals the untold stories of his most challenging cases in this compelling special event series. Iddles spent 25 years investigating homicides for Victoria Police and was a familiar face on the nightly news. He worked on more than 320 homicide cases and his success rate for solving murders was unprecedented. Known amongst his colleagues as “The Great Man”, Iddles was renowned for his compassion for the victims’ families and criminals alike.
His deft skills and empathy in the police interview room persuaded many a suspect to confess their crimes. As Iddles says, an interview is just a conversation, a search for the truth. Guided by his set of mantras – the answer is in the file; every family deserves answers; an ounce of information is worth a ton of investigation – Ron led his team by example.
“As a kid, all I wanted to be was a homicide detective. I’ve chased killers for 25 years. Many of those cases stick with me today,” recounts Iddles. “Ultimately do it for victims and their families. I tell them, “I’m here to solve the case.”
In each one-hour episode of Homicide with Ron Iddles, Iddles tells the intriguing story of one of his trickiest cases. The eight-year mystery of a missing teenager, the cocky armed robber who gunned down an innocent man, a femme fatale who lured lovers into a tangled web of murder, the charitable mum who vanished without a trace. Iddles also seeks out fresh evidence for two unsolved homicides in the hope of shedding new light on the cases and providing much-needed answers for heartbroken families.
Supplementing Iddles’ story will be insights from the victims’ families and friends. Many of these families have never told their story on television. We’ll also hear from the criminal prosecutors and hard-bitten journalists who covered each case.
In the cluttered world of true crime shows, it’s rare to hear the intricate details of a murder from the investigator who solved the crime.
Homicide with Ron Iddles is the closest you can get to being the lead investigator on a murder case, don’t miss out.
