HBO’s latest production called “I’ll Be Gone In The Dark” will be available for streaming this weekend. The show which will air on Sunday, 28 June is based on the book of the same name. The shows’ genre is true-crime and follows the life of Michelle McNamara delving into the world of the predator she dubbed “The Gloden State Killer”.
The story revolves around McNamara, who by profession was a homemaker and wife of the famous comedian Patton Oswalt. McNamara had an affinity towards unsolved crime cases and she went on to investigate the man who terrorized California in the 1970 and ’80s. Her quest to identify “The Gloden State Killer” also called the East Area Rapist and Visalia Ransacker brought the killers crime to light. He was accused of 13 homicide cases and had heinously raped 50 women.
McNamara wrote this book to not only bring the crimes of the predator to light but to also destigmatise the embarrassment and shame that the victims felt. She wanted the world to see the victims from a different light and wanted to give the victims a voice. Her aim was also to show how the society in the ’70s and ’80s brushed away such topics and never reported rape cases because of the humiliation of surviving such a gruesome crime.
McNamara was praised for her obsession with the unsolved crime cases as it was because of her that the law enforcement reopened the case of “The Gold State Killer”. The show based on true events will include original recordings, experts and tapings from McNamara’s book, which according to the sources at HBO would be read by actor Amy Ryan
