Today, Peacock announced the true-crime Peacock Original documentary THE TOOLBOX KILLER. The two-hour special will premiere on Thursday, September 23 on Peacock. Additionally, the documentary will air on Oxygen Sunday, October 3.

In his own words, America’s most sadistic serial killer, Lawrence Bittaker, describes his 1979 killing spree in this 2-hour documentary. Known as “The Toolbox Killer,” Lawrence Bittaker, alongside his partner Roy Norris, committed heinous acts. Bittaker remained silent about his crimes for 40 years until he met criminologist Laura Brand. Over the course of five years, Brand recorded her many conversations with Bittaker as he spoke from death row about his methods and motives, providing unique insights into the mind of a criminal sadist.

The special features commentary from survivors and the victims’ family members, including missing victim Andrea Hall, whose family spoke out publicly for the first time, and Tracee Witney, Lawrence Bittaker’s next-door neighbor, who reveals the horror she saw, and more.

Produced by Mike Mathis Productions with Mike Mathis, Matthew Testa, and Laura Brand serving as executive producers.
