Today with the insatiable appeal for sensationalized programming, HLN splits the difference. During the day, you get news shows with a “fast-paced, approachable tone”, according to the web site, often led by an “expert-led, personality-driven” host,

Gainesville student murders to be focus of HLN documentary

In late August 1990, WPLG Miami reporter Connie Hicks rushed to Gainesville to cover a surprising string of murders that had occurred.

The series of murders, now known as the Gainesville Murders, was a killing spree by Danny Rolling from Aug. 24 to 27. Rolling killed five college students: Christa Leigh Hoyt, Christina Powell, Sonja Larson, Manuel Taboada and Tracy Inez Paules.

 Hicks tried to get a local perspective of the disaster by knocking on residents doors across town but was met with only silence.

“The fear was palpable,” Hicks said.

The 70-year-old remembered the deafening silence that filled the city as no one would dare to open their door for her, too scarred from recent events.

Sunday, the season four premiere of “How It Really Happened” on HNL will air the two-part special “Mystery of The Gainesville Murders.” Part one will air at 9 p.m. EST and part two will air directly after at
