COEUR d'ALENE — The case of a 2016 shooting of a Coeur d'Alene pastor will be featured on the Investigation Discovery channel at 10 p.m. Thursday.
The segment will be the premiere episode of a new series called "Shadows of Death."
Investigation Discovery is channel 57 for Spectrum, 285 for DirecTV and 192 for Dish Network.
Kyle Odom was sentenced in November 2017 to a 10-year fixed prison sentence with an additional 15 years indeterminate for shooting Tim Remington, pastor of The Altar.
"Remington was attacked in a church parking lot in broad daylight," said Ty Guzman-Touchberry of the Discovery Network. "The episode will share how a massive manhunt ensued to catch the shooter, yet across town, Terry Odom and his family were starting their own search for their missing veteran son. Later the two worlds collide, and answers are revealed surrounding the popular pastor’s shooting."
Kyle Odom, Terry Odom’s son, had been missing when police came to the father with the startling revelation that his son might be the shooting suspect.
"But why would his son commit such a crime?" said Justine Doiron, of Discovery Network. "Both law enforcement and the Odom family had to dig deep to uncover the twisted story behind these terrifying actions."
In addition to Remington, others interviewed for the episode include Coeur d'Alene Police Lt. Brandon McCormick and Remington's son Jadon.
Kyle Odom, a Marine combat veteran who had no previous criminal history, shot Remington in the church parking lot in the 900 block of East Best Avenue, emptying a 12-round magazine before fleeing, according to court testimony.
The shooting had been meticulously planned, according to a police investigation that backtracked Odom’s movements for weeks prior to the incident.
After the shooting, Odom fled to Washington, D.C., where he was arrested by security officers after throwing documents and computer flash drives over a fence onto the White House lawn.
According to a 30-page manifesto Odom sent to Idaho news outlets, Odom thought he was being tormented by "hypersexual" mind-controlling Martians.
First District Judge Lansing Haynes called Odom’s manifesto "chilling," a cross between science fiction, psychosis and the supernatural, and referred to Remington’s testimony as spiritual.
Remington survived and told Odom during court that he forgave him.
"I’m going to be the victor in all of this," Remington said. "The victim, I believe, is Kyle Odom."
