ID Greenlights Follow-Up Episode for Killing Richard Glossip

Investigation Discovery (ID) has greenlit a fifth episode of the true-crime docuseries Killing Richard Glossip, as new developments have come to light in the case of the death-row inmate.

The series kicked off a two-night event on ID yesterday. The new installment will pick up where the series leaves off. Created and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Joe Berlinger, Killing Richard Glossip follows the story of two men convicted of murder—one on death row, and the other sentenced to life without parole—who give two very different accounts of what led to the slaying of Barry Van Treese on January 7, 1997. Glossip, a man with no prior felony convictions, has consistently maintained his innocence and continues to narrowly avoid execution by the state of Oklahoma.

“With our cameras capturing both the work of Glossip’s legal team as well as our own investigation, we have documented several important new discoveries and leads that are critical to Richard Glossip’s legal case,” said Berlinger. “As the clock ticks down to what could be the final days of Glossip’s life, we are gratified that ID will air a fifth episode later this spring to give viewers—and the State of Oklahoma—the latest developments on this ever-evolving case, and to provide deeper exploration into some of the leads uncovered in the first four episodes, in order to help prevent a tragic miscarriage of justice.”
