On June 26, 2017, Investigation Discovery channel premiered "The Real Story With Maria Elena Salinas"  Lost Girls of the Mesa, (Season 1, Episode 10) featuring our very own Dirk Gibson.  In 2009, police uncovered the most grisly murder scene in New Mexico history.  After uncovering human remains on the West Mesa, ABQ PD launched an unprededented investigation that leads to a serial killer on the loose...this is where Dr. Gibson comes into play.  Click here to watch the full episode.

Dr. Gibson has long been a national expert on product recalls and with the publication of two books on serial murderers he also has become an expert source for print and broadcast media on the mass communications of serial killers.
