The cast of Dateline

In "The Breakup” episode, the mystery began when a frantic woman covered in blood rushed into the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department's Palmdale station on June 16, 2010 to report finding her friend LaNell Barsock dead on the floor of the garage of her California home. Detectives rushed to the scene and found Barsock, a dedicated nurse, with a black plastic bag over her head, suggesting to authorities that she may have known her killer. They quickly honed in on Barsock’s live-in boyfriend before realizing they were headed in the wrong direction in the stunning case.

The “Dark Intentions” episode showcased investigators who were in a race against time as they tried to track down a serial rapist and killer known ominously as the “Bathtub Killer” wreaking havoc in Arlington, Texas in the 1990s. Some of the man’s victims chillingly recalled their harrowing encounters with the rapist, and their heroic decision to come forward helped authorities piece together the man’s identity. 

Kristi Johnson featured on Dateline: The Girl With The Hibiscus Tattoo

In “The Girl with the Hibiscus Tattoo,” Dateline correspondent Keith Morrison retraced the deadly path of convicted killer Victor Paleologus, a man who lured beautiful Hollywood hopefuls into his trap with a web of lies about being a photographer tasked with casting top movies. Morrison spoke with some of the women Paleologus encountered, as well as those who knew victim Kristi Johnson, and even Paleologus himself — who continues to maintain his innocence. 

These are just a few of the episodes from Season 32 of Dateline that are now streaming on Peacock.
