This week, we’ve got a special episode for you from the new season of Solved Murders: True Crime Mysteries. It's a 4-part mini-series that tells the true story of Bass Reeves—a sharp-shooting deputy marshal in the Wild West.

It’s a story with all the classic action—pistols, outlaws, undercover take downs. But it’s also the Wild West like you’ve never heard it before. Because Bass Reeves… is a Black deputy, and he earned his badge after fleeing slavery.
