GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN: ID TAKES VIEWERS INSIDE A HOMICIDE DETECTIVE’S PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY IN THE NEW SERIES DEADLY RECALL
-- The Six-Episode True-Crime Series Premieres on Tuesday, March 5th at 10/9ct --
(New York, NY) – Some crimes scenes are so dreadful that law enforcement pray to forget them, but Detective Pat Postiglione operates differently; he wants to remember every single detail. This is because he isn’t a normal homicide detective, Pat Postiglione has the gift of a photographic memory. Coupled with a laser sharp eye for evidence and a brain that is trained to detect microscopic clues, this detective is one of the most valuable minds on the force. With over 25 years of experience as a Nashville homicide detective, Det. Postiglione has seen hundreds of crimes scenes, and he remembers each as if it happened yesterday. The victims live on in his consciousness, and the details remain ingrained in his mind. For some, this might be haunting, but for Det. Postiglione, it’s his life’s calling. DEADLY RECALL premieres on Tuesday, March 5th at 10/9PM CT only on Investigation Discovery.
“There are very few men like Det. Pat Postiglione, and that’s not just due to his exceptional memory,” says Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel, and Destination America, “He incapsulates what it means to be dedicated to justice, using every ounce of his energy, determination – and, his unique gift – to bring closure, finally, to the families of the victims of these tragic, yet enigmatic cases.”
For the first time ever, Det. Postiglione recounts his most daunting cases, walking viewers through the locations in exacting detail. Each crime scene is carefully recreated based on actual police records and the gift of Det. Postiglione’s unparalleled memory. Episodes begin with Det. Postiglione tracing out the clues, inviting viewers to piece together the evidence as he forms new leads. It’s a game of connecting the dots to find the culprit, and there’s no brain better suited for the job than his.
In each of the six hour-long episodes, Det. Postiglione relives the imagery and talks through the evidence. All physical clues lead Pat down a winding path to the guilty party, ensuring justice at the culmination of each show. In his search, he combines background information, suspect interviews and expert testimony, but he always relies on what he trusts the most, his memory of the scene itself. He willingly revives these
heart-wrenching memories because he feels it is his duty to uncover the truth. His mind might be a blessing, it might be a curse, but it’s the only life he’s ever known.
