"48 Hours Live to Tell: The Railroad Killer," is the firsthand account of a young woman who is the sole survivor of serial killer Angel Maturino Resendiz. Resendiz, aka "The Railroad Killer," rode the rails from state to state, often killing people as they slept during the 1990s.
To help visualize the serial killer's trail in the broadcast, "48 Hours
" used a remote controlled, battery operated drone helicopter about five feet in length to fly over the rails.
The first photo shoot with the drone chopper took place in and around Weimer Texas, where some of the killings related to this story had occurred more than 10 years ago. Stephen Mick, director of photography for the shoot, mounts the Canon 5D to the chopper.
