The series is set in Humboldt County, California, where marijuana is the dominant local industry, and dozens of people have gone missing in the last few years – more than any other county in California.
“Murder Mountain” focuses on the disappearance of 29-year-old Garret Rodriguez in 2013. The investigation into his whereabouts, the producers say, exposes “a wild, lawless place.”
The series also delves into Humboldt’s marijuana farms, both legal and illegal, and provides a glimpse into what it takes for an outlaw farmer to cross over to the legal market.
