The new season of Oxygen’s true crime investigative show “Cold Justice” premieres this weekend and will examine a cold case in Carbon County. The first episode of the show’s two-part season premiere airs at 4 p.m. Mountain Time on Saturday and centers around the deaths of two women, Thora Kjelsrud and Debra, whose last name is not given.
“Although they died 13 years apart, the circumstances of their deaths raised questions as the women shared some curious connections,” a press release for the show says. “Working alongside the county coroner’s office, Kelly (Siegler) and the team make an eerie discovery with another mysterious death with similarities to Thora’s death. With multiple crime scenes and details to dissect, Steve Spingola and Dr. Pinneri join the case to help determine if the victim’s (sic) deaths were accidents, suicides or homicides.”
The second half of the premiere, titled “Death Among Him,” airs at 4 p.m. Mountain Time on Feb. 23.
The show is produced by Dick Wolf, best known for creating the “Law & Order” franchise.
According to the press release, the show, which began in 2013 and originally aired on TNT, has “helped bring about 38 arrests and 19 convictions.” Local law enforcement invites the show to all of the cases it examines, according to the release.
