The Killing Season Episode 5 (Spoiler Alert)

As anyone who has been following this blog knows, when Neal Falls was shot down in the home of Heather Saul on July 18, 2015 his death opened up an important clue in the unsolved murders of women across the country, but ultimately led to a multitude of new questions. We still aren’t certain how many people Falls may have killed prior to his death, nor have we been able to definitively connect him to any crimes, aside from the attack of Heather Saul.

In Episode 5 of The Killing Season producers Josh Zeman and Rachel Mills explore how Falls was able to wedge his way into the Gilgo Beach story. Ultimately they determine that Falls was most likely not behind the killings of multiple women in the Long Island-area, but what they are able to uncover is how a man like Neal Falls was able to zig zag across the country practically undetected for years prior to that fateful summer day in West Virginia.

Their Neal Falls segment of the program focuses on Heather Saul and how she was able to dispatch the man who tried to take her life. It also goes into her struggle with addiction and what led her to the path of prostitution. In addition to the candid interview with Heather, Zeman and Mills were also able to provide clips from the surveillance footage taken from the police station on the day Heather had shot Falls with his own gun.


She is clearly in a state of shock and utter horror that someone else’s blood was on her hands, but also knew that it was a kill or be killed situation. Like Arya Stark in Game of Thrones when the God of Death looked her in the face, she turned and said “Not today.” Heather was released without any charges.

In addition to Heather’s interview, Mills and Zeman also spoke with Lt. Steve Cooper of the Charleston Police Department. Cooper allowed them to film the various evidence found within Falls’ vehicle which led him to suspect that Falls had been a seasoned pro. According to Heather, Cooper had told her that it was possible that Falls had been killing for up to a decade prior to finding himself at Heather’s doorstep.

Other people interviewed in the series say that Heather has kept a relatively low profile since the incident because she doesn’t want to be the face of “all this.” But many have applauded Heather’s quick thinking and have lauded her as a hero to many other women who may have fallen victim to Falls.

Immediately after the episode aired, I knew that the show had revived the story of Neal Falls and the interest in this case. We have since welcomed dozens of new members to my Neal Falls Investigation group on Facebook, some claiming they had encountered Falls during his time in West Virginia and were thankful that they were able to escape. Yet people are still left to wonder what Falls would have gone on to do if he had not been killed that summer’s day and what he may have already done.

I am still committed to finding out the answers to these questions and many more. My hope is that with the renewed interest in this case that these answers will slowly begin to trickle in and we will inch a little closer to putting together the pieces to the puzzle that was Neal Falls.

I’d also like to take the time to make a special announcement. I will be appearing as a guest on Websleuth’s Radio to discuss Episode 5/6 of The Killing Season, as well as Neal Falls on Tuesday night (11/29/16) at 8pm EST. Be sure to tune in to find out the latest on Falls and where my investigation has taken me.

  1. I am doing a lot of easy internet searches for how many escorts did Neal Falls kill? So far I have found none. NOT one has this asshole been connected to with any real evidence. So they must have his DNA how come there hasn’t been any of the bodies of these women connected to him? Now something interesting Heather said about her meeting with Neal Falls. She said something along the lines of he was not there to rape her. He was there to kill her. Is it possible that this guy was just that? I tend to think of serial killers as sexually based predators. Maybe this guy was something different? So I dont like speculation when it comes to law and evidence of a persons guilt. I have no doubt that Heather saved her own life and that only one of those two in the room were ever going to leave her home alive. So what do we know about this man Neal Falls? What is his family saying about him? I believe these guys are made they are not born this way? This Killing Season is Fascinating and I dont know what it is about this subject but it makes my blood boil how the news makes these cowards who prey on the weak and vulnerable into criminal Geniuses! I have read everything i can get my hands on about the serial rapist / killer of Sacramento. That guy was crazy prolific and stopped on a dime? No one has ever been connected to those crimes.
