Veteran journalist Paula Zahn steps out of the studio and into the field to unravel criminal investigations, tracking the drama of each story by featuring the opinions of those closest to the case, including law enforcement officials, the families of the victims and the incarcerated, lawyers from both sides, and first-time TV interviews with convicted murderers.
"Betrayed" reveals chilling stories of chasing the American dream and how the veneer can dramatically crumble, ending in murder at the hands of a trusted family member, co-worker, lover, or friend. The cases of deception are told through the lens of the fictionalized, first-person perspectives of the victims. As investigators, family, and friends peel back the layers and facts of each case, the otherworldly narrator already knows where the trail ends. The narrator guides viewers through various relationships, raising suspicions about who will commit the ultimate betrayal.
Living in a surveillance society means everyday actions are caught on camera, mostly of honest citizens going about their routines. Video, however, doesn't discriminate; criminals also end up on film. "See No Evil" presents dramatic stories of crimes being solved with the aid of surveillance cameras. Testimony from police, eyewitnesses and families are woven into re-enactments bolstered by actual security-camera footage, which helps unlock answers to cases that otherwise might have remained unsolved and left dangerous perpetrators at large.
Hundreds of homicide cases in any given year can shake even the staunchest cities and police departments to the core. The statistics, however, don't paint the real stories and the effect that lingers -- through the pain endured by victims' loved ones, the community impact, and the memories that detectives will never forget. "Homicide City" explores unforgettable murder cases from major American cities, investigations that had law enforcement banding together across metropolitan landscapes in a sequence of manhunts. Each story is told by veteran homicide detectives, local reporters, and the victims' families.
Investigators reconstruct the tragic final hours in a murder victim's life in order to crack the case and find the killer.
If anyone knows how to come out on top in a murder case, it's Anna-Sigga Nicolazzi. As a prosecutor with the Brooklyn District Attorney's office for two decades, Nicolazzi amassed a 35-0 record in the Homicide Bureau and established a flawless reputation for exposing the truth, while remaining a steadfast advocate for victims. Her expertise carries over to her role in "True Conviction," a six-episode series that follows Nicolazzi as she travels across the country to reveal how top prosecutors tackled their toughest cases. She visits crime scenes, examines cases through the eyes of prosecutors, and meets with key figures at the center of each case. The goal, she says, is to bring these true crime stories to life and tell them in a way that hasn't been done before.
Not every murder scene leaves behind clues in the form of bloody footprints, clothing fibers or fingerprint stains. Investigators earn their reputations by discovering evidence other than what is easy to see. This series spotlights devoted investigators who "go beyond the headlines," incorporating cutting-edge science to find the tiniest trace evidence and understand its relevance. The forensics-driven stories are told via stylized re-enactments, showing how the best investigators work to decipher which clues mean nothing and which ones will put a killer behind bars, all to bring justice to victims' loved ones.
Chilling scenarios unfold in this true-crime series, which tells actual stories of people who shared their lives with loved ones who became killers. Each hourlong episode puts viewers in the shoes of the loved one, who first notices that something is amiss, interprets the puzzling signs and clues, and eventually comes face-to-face with the horrible truth: that the person has a very dark side. Exclusive interviews and firsthand accounts of the critical moments leading up to the vicious acts showcase devastating, often undiscussed consequences on the people who have nurtured, loved and raised a murderer.
The most terrifying criminals often hide in plain sight, looking as ordinary as a friendly next-door neighbor. Those regular Joes are the focus of "American Monster," precisely because lurking within them are psychopathic killers. Similar to Investigation Discovery's "See No Evil," the hourlong series uses personal movie footage of the monsters-in-disguise at home with family and friends, giving viewers a sense of how their lives are seemingly normal. Interweaved are the stories of their astonishing crimes and interviews with neighbors and loved ones.
Lt. Joe Kenda spent 23 years in the Colorado Springs Police Department, where he amassed a lifetime of memories catching killers and helping solve close to 400 homicide investigations. The vivid memories are brought back to life in this hourlong series, as Kenda reopens his "Murder Books" for viewers -- folders in which every detail of his murder cases is held -- to revisit the most disturbing cases still haunting him today. As he details the process of how he solved the crimes, Kendra also embarks on a personal journey, coming to terms with long-suppressed nightmares. As he says, "I don't want to tell these stories. I need to."
In classic Investigation Discovery style, "Murder in the Heartland" weaves harrowing narratives of quiet Middle America towns torn apart by provocative crimes. Each town's tale is given life by the combined perspectives of its residents, who are more than just storytellers. The interviewees were also key witnesses to each of the crimes, and they hold critical clues to puzzles that not only have forever changed their lives but how they have come to view their once-idyllic hometowns.
The urgency and intimacy of local news reports capture the murder investigations that turned small towns and communities upside down.
The stories of murder investigations as told from the points-of-view of the last people to see the victims alive.
Investigation Discovery and People magazine partner to re-examine some of the most high profile crime cases in recent history. The one-hour series brings viewers tales of betrayal, buried secrets and unsung heroes, ripped from the pages of one of the nation's top weekly magazines. These stories transcended news and became part of pop culture, revealing shocking twists, new evidence, and unexpected resolutions. Interlaced within every episode are exclusive interviews with People's journalists, archival footage, re-creations, and firsthand accounts by those closest to the investigations.
Disturbing cases featuring culprits who hide in plain sight, giving interviews, posting on social media and showing their faces while having blood on their hands the whole time.
Survivors, loved ones and witnesses share stories of endurance, describing the life-or-death situations they survived and the permanent physical and emotional scars they sustained after narrowly escaping death.
To hunt down the most heartless of killers, investigators must carefully gather clues to build an accurate profile, and there's always traces of the fiend somewhere left behind.
Actual murder cases from the 1950s and '60s get sleek, cinematic treatment in this series, transporting viewers back to a pre-forensics era when sometimes it was more about how suspects looked than what they did that determined guilt. Narrative by a fictional bystander -- who "knew" the victim -- drives the hourlong episodes, while reporters who covered the case explain how the events impacted society. Artfully crafted re-creations play out like period thrillers, staying true to fashions and styles, while spotlighting cultural taboos and social norms surrounding each case.
From the outside, families seem like harmonious units in loving homes. But you don't necessarily know what secrets families are hiding from the outside world. This series, narrated by actress Brenda Strong, explores families hiding the most extreme of family secrets: murder. Each episode explores a death in a family, unraveling the motives of the family members, all of whom are potential suspects -- and potential victims. Sibling rivalries, disputes over family businesses and infidelity are some of the factors that lead to the families' ultimate betrayals.
How well do you know your neighbors? What are their names? What do they do for a living? After watching "Nightmare Next Door," you may want to find out a little more about them. Each episode tells the story of a murder that happened in a seemingly tight-knit community. Viewers get to the heart of the case through interviews with investigators, prosecutors, family members and -- of course -- neighbors, in addition to forensic experiments. The stories reveal twists and turns, and when a suspect emerges, the final outcome can surprise everyone involved.
Love is not patient, nor is it kind, and it definitely does not conquer all. As described in this six-part series, everything people thought they knew about love is wrong. Episodes detail casualties of love, including former partners, jealous friends, scorned sons and daughters, and devoted family members. The stories of love triangles, hidden affairs and family secrets, depicted via stylized re-enactments, show the transfixing power of emotion and how it can beckon the most reasonable people into criminal madness. Sometimes the most dangerous people are the ones you least expect.
