One of the reality-based TV shows that always freezes me on the couch is “The First 48
Hours.” If you haven’t seen the show, it basically follows homicide investigators as they try to solve violent killings in cities around the country. The show provides an often chilling peek into the lives of people who make a living by examining unnatural deaths.
For the last several years, the TV show that pioneered the newest generation of reality cop shows, “America’s Most Wanted,” has awarded police officers, firefighters and other first responders with an All-Star Award.
This year, they’ve nominated Sgt. Darcy Klund, a homicide investigator for the Minneapolis Police Department. Klund joined MPD in 1987 and has been involved in some high profile homicide cases, including the shooting death of 12-year-old Tyesha Edwards in 2002.
You can read more about his nomination and vote for him or one of the other nominees on the show’s website.
