Fan of HBO’s True Detective? Take 20-minutes out of your life to hear the real story, courtesy of VICE‘s latest mini-documentary.

Ten years ago, the town of Ponchatoula, Louisiana, was traumatized when a local church’s secret Satan worship, ritualized child molestation, and animal sacrifices came to light. Rust Cohle may be a fictional character, and time may not really be a flat circle, but that sounds an awful lot like the events of the first season of HBO’s hit True Detective. In this episode of our brand-new series The Real, we went down to Ponchatoula to meet Stuart Murphy and Tom Tedder, two law enforcement officials who helped put these terrible, true events in Ponchatoula’s rearview mirror.

Speaking of the HBO series. The second installment is to feature Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell and Rachel McAdams. Thoughts?
