How TV’s Biggest True-Crime Players Find Their Stories

All week long, Vulture is exploring the many ways true crime has become one of the most dominant genres in popular culture.

While Serial famously inspired a wave of true-crime storytelling on podcasts, HBO’s The Jinx and Netflix’s Making a Murderer arguably made the boom real on television. Now, after three more years of stories involving murder and mayhem

Texarkana native, former homicide detective, feels the ‘Price of Duty’

For nearly three decades, Danny J. Agan enforced the law in Atlanta, Ga., including conducting homicide investigations in a city at one time considered the murder capital of the nation.

Of all the cases Agan worked, it was the investigation of a serial rapist that became one of the most memorable and haunting of his career. It involved a perpetrator who manipulated victims and, in one instance, seemed to taunt the police face-to-face.

Agan, a Texarkana native who lived here the first dozen years of his life, rose through the ranks to retire in 2003 as the Atlanta Police Department homicide commander.

In his long and storied career, he was a high profile, fedora-wearing presence, often appearing on TV to give press briefings, and on some level he dealt with 800 murders, whether directly or through his detectives. His job included some early investigative work on cases that involved Wayne Williams, a convicted

Fedora-wearing APD detective featured on Oxygen’s ‘The Price of Duty’ July 30

Over the course of a quarter century, Danny Agan was the dapper symbol of murder and mayhem on the streets of Atlanta.

As a newbie 25-year-old homicide detective in 1979, Agan donned a fedora because he thought the squad should look sharp and stand out. It set the tone for the unit for decades to come – it was known as the Hat Squad. 

Although Agan had a hand in some 800 homicide investigations, it wasn’t a murder that gnawed at him through the years. It was a series of attacks 30 years ago by a serial rapist, crimes that went unsolved for decades until he got the investigation reactivated after his retirement.  

The attacks, his frustrating and fruitless investigation, and then the eventual
