The Capture of the Green River Killer

The Capture of the Green River Killer

The film is based on Sheriff David Reichert's book, Chasing the Devil: My Twenty-Year Quest to Capture the Green River Killer. The film's biggest departure from the book is a fictional inclusion of two teenage girls, one of whom, Helen "Hel" Remus (Amy Davidson), is a young runaway who decides to turn to prostitution to escape her mother's abusive boyfriend, in a sympathetic storyline to honor Ridgway's victims. Detective Dave Reichert (Tom Cavanagh) works the murder cases and stays on the case from beginning to end, including extensive interviews with incaracerated serial killer Ted Bundy (James Marsters). In the movie he and another officer face the killer, Gary Ridgway (John Pielmeier) after tracking his truck down because it was seen picking up a missing woman.

This Movie is Based on true story in Green River Killer,
The Story about Gary Leon Ridgway (born February 18, 1949), known as the "Green River Killer", is an American serial killer. Ridgway murdered numerous women in Washington during the 1980s and 1990s. He strangled them, mostly with his arm, but he would also use ligatures. After strangling the women, he would dump their bodies throughout King County.

On November 30, 2001, as he was leaving a Renton, Washington factory where he worked, he was arrested for the murders of four women whose cases were linked to him through DNA evidence. As part of a plea bargain, he was spared the death penalty and received a sentence of life imprisonment without parole.
