WTOP News and PodcastOne have announced the return of the "American Nightmare Series podcast. Debuting October 4, "American Nightmare Series: Unknown Subject" focuses on a man who terrorized women across the DC area for nine years. Veteran D.C. crime reporter Paul Wagner is back to host season 3 of WTOP's American Nightmare Series podcast.

"Paul has done it again. He is such a great storyteller. Listeners will be captivated from the first minute of episode 1," said WTOP Director of News & Programming Julia Ziegler.

In the series, Wagner speaks with David Hackos, the husband of murder victim Christine Mirzayan, the centerpiece of season 3. Wagner also delivers interviews with other victims and digs deep into the investigation by talking with two former homicide commanders. Listeners will also hear evidence that has never been made public before this podcast, including the pivotal police interview with the suspect.

Wagner noted, "The murder of Christine Mirzayan in 1998 has haunted me for years. I knew about the DNA link with a series of horrible rapes but investigators had gotten nowhere for years. So, when in 2019 police made an arrest I knew I had to tell the incredible story. How advances in science coupled with a curious cop with an unusual hobby finally tracked the suspect down. The Unknown Subject finally had a name."

Episode 1 of WTOP's American Nightmare Series: Unknown Subject will be available for download October 4 on PodcastOne, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and WTOP.com.

"We are proud to be able to bring another nail-biting season of American Nightmare to podcast listeners. Season 3 will be another intense story with jaw dropping details that cannot be heard elsewhere. WTOP and Paul Wagner have outdone themselves again and we cannot wait for true crime fans to dive into the mystery surrounding Unknown Subject, a case that haunted the DC area for decades," said PodcastOne President Kit Gray.
