Plot Synopsis

Through their research and a series of exclusive videotaped interviews with current inmate and convicted murderer Edward Harold Bell, journalist Lise Olsen and retired police detective Fred Paige re-examine the murders of eleven teenage girls after discovering Bell's confession letter. Throughout the 1970s, the cities in and around Galveston County, Texas were haunted by the brutal murders of eleven teenage girls. Now, Olsen and Paige are revisiting these cases after discovering a confession letter from Bell, who is currently serving a 70-year sentence for an unrelated murder. In his chilling confession, Bell describes some of the girls' deaths in gruesome detail and refers to many of the victims by name. Yet in the investigators' exclusive face-to-face interviews with Bell, he denies the written confession, proving that linking him to the 45-year-old murders is a formidable challenge. With a parole hearing for Bell looming this fall, Olsen and Paige must try to piece together evidence that demonstrates a definitive link between the convicted killer and girls he calls "the eleven who went to heaven" before he has the possibility to walk free. In each one-hour episode, THE ELEVEN explores the girls' stories in depth in an attempt to discover a link to Bell. Through cinematic dramatizations as well as unprecedented access to interviews with friends, family, and witnesses, the limited series attempts to solve the mystery behind 'the eleven' in order to try to find justice for the young women and closure for their families. THE ELEVEN premieres with back-to-back episodes on Thursday, October 19, 2017 from 9-11pm ET/PT on A&E, with new episodes continuing in the 10pm ET/PT timeslot the following week and for the remainder of the series.
On Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, A&E premiered "Final Toll," the finale of THE ELEVEN. With Edward Harold Bell's parole date quickly approaching, investigators Lise Olsen and Fred Paige face mounting pressure to find definitive proof that links him to the Eleven. The key question -- has Bell ever revealed anything only the killer would know?
