Using dramatic re-enactments bolstered by police reports and forensic evidence, Investigation Discovery delves into the minds of female killers in "Deadly Women." Each episode focuses on four different cases in which women, for a variety of reasons and with a variety of methods, chose to take the lives of others. Stories featured include more recent cases, like that of Andrea Yates, the Texas woman who in 2001 drowned her five children one by one in the bathtub and then called police, to older cases like that of the "baby farmer" Sarah Makin in 1890s Australia, who killed illegitimate infants left temporarily in her care.

There's a reason murder investigations don't begin with preconceived notions. Sometimes those least expected to be capable of committing such dark deeds -- respected role models and trusted members of the community -- can have a sinister side. "Unusual Suspects" documents baffling, challenging investigations, actual cases that were anything but cut and dry. Episodes feature in-depth interviews with leading law enforcement personnel combined with stylized re-enactments, illustrating how illusive offenders evaded capture for years before being undone by persistent police work.
