New Trailer for Highway Murders Film Gives Victims a Voice
Dartmouth resident Aaron Cadieux, the director behind the award-winning and highly praised The Bridgewater Triangle documentary, has just released the newest trailer for his next project, The Highway Murders.
The documentary is the first full-length feature to ever focus on the New Bedford highway murders, which rocked the region in 1988 and 1989 but still have never been solved. Eleven women disappeared from New Bedford’s streets, and nine bodies were eventually found, in one of the greatest unsolved serial murder cases in American history.
Working alongside Dave Grochmal and Kitty Martin, part of Cadieux’s vision is, of course, to explore the investigation, where law enforcement went wrong with some of their suspects, and what avenues may not have been fully explored.
But more importantly, this documentary will give the victims a voice, instead of just being described as random prostitutes and women of questionable character, as they have so often been portrayed in the media all these years. As evidenced by the newest trailer below, these were people. These were mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, girlfriends. And they were brutally taken too soon.
Even though the documentary is expected to be released within a year, Cadieux is still looking for those who have a story to share. You can contact him via the website, or call him at (508) 505-INFO (4636).
Below is the newest trailer, focusing on the victims and their stories, as well as the original teaser trailer released last year.
