On Thursday the second season of the deep-dive narrative crime series will be available. Season 2 is called “Mom vs. Murderer.”
In the winter of 1994, 20-year-old Southern California honor student Cathy Torrez was found stabbed to death in the trunk of her car. Mary Bennett – Torrez’s mother – has been trying to get justice for over two decades. Crime Beat is hosted by journalist Keith Sharon, who works for the Southern California News Group and wrote two screenplays that became Hollywood movies. The first was “Showtime” with Robert De Niro and Eddie Murphy. The second was “Finding Steve McQueen,” starring Forest Whitaker, Travis Fimmel and Rachael Taylor.
