'Texas Killing Fields" premiers today

The Houston Chronicle is reporting; two days ago, Texas City Police Capt. Brian Goetschius persuaded former detective Mike Land to meet him at a nearby Catholic church to pray.

Land, a hard-nosed investigator who recently retired after three decades on the Texas City force, was more accustomed to being summoned to gory crime scenes. But he agreed with Goetschius on the urgency to pray that "something good" come from the movie released on Friday, Texas Killing Fields.

It portrays both men as leading an investigation into some 60 unsolved murders from the 1970s to the 1990s of young women whose bodies were dumped in a swampy field on the outskirts of Texas City.
