NETFLIX has done it again with its newest true crime documentary series, The Keepers.
The seven-episode series follows the mysterious disappearance of a nun, Sister Cathy Cesnik, almost 50 years ago in Baltimore, Maryland.
On Nov 7, 1969, Cesnik drove to a shopping centre in the evening to buy an engagement present for her sister. She never came back.
Oddly, her car was found parked near her apartment the next morning. The police, friends and family tried to look for Cesnik but to no avail. About two months later, her body was found at a landfill.
Just like watching Netflix’s first documentary series, Making A Murderer, The Keepers gave me goosebumps. The clues to Cesnik’s death points to a much bigger conspiracy at work.
Director Ryan White peeled open Cesnik’s story, layer by heartwrenching layer, so effectively.
White uses the elements of suspense and cliffhangers viewers usually see in a fictional crime series that kept me at the edge of my seat.
And for the documentarian to try and uncover the truth about a murder that happened nearly 50 years ago, The Keepers is really something.
The Keepers is available on Netflix.
