On June 22, 2018, Tristan Beaudette is brutally murdered in front of his two young daughters while camping in idyllic Malibu Creek State Park. The killing stuns the tight-knit, privileged community of Malibu.
More stunning? The fact that the cops anticipated the attack, but didn’t move to stop it. And the culprit they identify insists he’s being framed.
We met up with Dana Goodyear (The New Yorker) in September, 2018, just after the murder and began reporting this epic mystery from the very beginning.
Over two-and-a-half years in the making, Lost Hills debuts on March 16, 2021.
Lost Hills is produced by Western Sound and Pushkin Industries.
