DISCOVERY'S NEWEST TRUE CRIME SERIES "ALASKA HOMICIDE" SEARCHES FOR CLUES IN THE NATION'S MOST RUGGED STATE

'ALASKA HOMICIDE' Premieres Friday, June 2 at 10 PM ET/PT on the Discovery Channel

(LOS ANGELES) - In the largely untouched landscape of Alaska, people go missing at an eerily high rate with more missing people per capita than any other state. It's a place where people can vanish into the wilderness without a trace - with some disappearing because they want to, but many others missing because someone else wanted them to. On Friday, June 2 at 10 PM ET/PT, Discovery Channel will premiere its newest true crime series ALASKA HOMICIDE that sets out to find answers behind these puzzling real-life cases.

Lantz Dahlke became an Alaska State Trooper because he wanted to represent the best of the best. He eventually joined the Alaska Bureau of Investigation's Cold Case Unit to help bring justice to the many missing or murdered victims and their families. However, after only 18 months on the job, the unit was disbanded - leaving most of these cases unsolved. Even though the unit is done, Dahlke is not. He's more determined than ever to keep searching - despite the many roadblocks and potential dangers of not only nature but mankind.

"I've been all over the country and there is no state like Alaska. It's easy to dump bodies here," Dahlke said. "If you shove a body into a crab pot, push it into 150 feet of water, they're gone forever. Not only are cold cases dark and sinister in nature, but literally for six months we have less sunlight than any other state. It's a forbidding feeling."

In the first episode, Dahlke heads to the remote town of Nome, Alaska. Built on gold mining, Nome was once the most populous city in Alaska, but now has a population of just under 4,000 people. It is a tough and unforgiving place with a reputation of having a high rate of people who go missing.

When Dahlke arrives in town he discovers the puzzling disappearance of a 36-year-old man on a road outside of Nome. He digs into the case to determine whether the missing Texas native was killed by a bear, as some believe, or whether he was murdered. Lantz also looks into the 2004 disappearance of a Saint Lawrence man who came to Nome to visit his girlfriend and vanished under suspicious circumstances.

Each week, ALASKA HOMICIDE will follow Dahlke and his team of investigators determined to crack these mysterious cases and others across the unforgiving terrain of Alaska. They have the tools and expertise, but can they find justice? And once and for all find the answers needed from the victims' families, friends and community?

ALASKA HOMICIDE is produced for Discovery Channel by M2 Pictures, where Mike Sinclair and Chris Rowe are Executive Producers. For Discovery Channel, Matthew Vafiadis is Executive Producer and Katlyn Higgins is Associate Producer.
