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.
The South can be as shadowy as the muddy waters that run through it, especially when it comes to crime; an exploration of the duplicitous characters, unique settings and boundless mysteries of the American South.
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.
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.
"It's not like in the movies," police Sgt. David White says, describing his encounter with a gun-wielding suspect that was captured on his body camera. The video is among those featured on this series, which offers unprecedented access to police units that are using this innovative and vital technology in the line of duty. The series takes viewers on the "ultimate ride-along" as they view the life-or-death, split-second decisions that those in law enforcement are forced to make on a daily basis. Each story weaves interviews with responding officers throughout to provide critical context to their decisions and to add additional insight to the life-changing, sometimes tragically fatal, moments.
Like a pane of glass cracking in all directions before shattering, the impact of a single crime can create ripple effects that forever alter multiple lives. This Investigation Discovery series unravels actual homicide cases to explore how the past continues to haunt the present for those involved -- loved ones, witnesses, and law enforcement. Each episode is structured around three distinct perspectives of the same crime, and as viewers learn different details by way of first-person interviews and stylized re-enactments, stories, which at first seem random, slowly start to intertwine.
Exclusive interviews and an in-depth investigation reveal new clues about Jeffrey Epstein's seedy underworld, privileged life and controversial death.
Neighbors turn against each other with frightful consequences.
During his storied career at the Houston Police Department, Detective Fil Waters made a name for himself in the interrogation room as an eminently skillful interviewer capable of getting stunning confessions from close-mouthed criminals. Using his ability to plumb the psyches of suspects and develop successful strategies for systemized interviews, the highly decorated law enforcement officer has helped solve more than 400 murder cases. Now, Detective Waters teaches interrogation techniques to police forces around the country. Known for his smooth-talking style, Waters uses strategic lines of questioning to lay out the facts of the case, leaving the perpetrator with no option but to tell the truth. In ID's "The Interrogator," Detective Waters recalls his most famous cases and showcases his interrogation techniques designed to convince suspects to lower their guards and spit out answers the police never saw coming.
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.
Stories of the survivors who were kidnapped and lived.
Using stylized re-enactments to tell actual stories, "Forbidden: Dying for Love" delves into relationships that defy traditions, break taboos, and lead to heinous crimes. These star-crossed lovers -- from the couple who discard religious customs for love to the pastor who falls for the co-worker-- have tried to resist the forces that threaten to keep them apart. However, as Investigation Discovery says, "once they've crossed the line, anything becomes possible."
"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.
When a crime scene throws suspicion in multiple directions, investigators may have a perfect murder on their hands. Ingenious killers are every detective's worst nightmare, as the crimes they commit are full of leads that become dead ends, and multiple suspects are ultimately discarded. But just when a murderer thinks he or she has successfully gotten away with it, one small clue leads to another and a cold case suddenly turns hot. "The Perfect Murder" follows actual cases and uses stylized re-enactments depicting detectives slowly putting the pieces together to complete intricate puzzles.
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.
Transporting viewers into what Investigation Discovery calls "a vortex of dark mystery and psychological terror," the docuseries "Dead Silent" delves into actual stories of crimes set in desolate locations. Hourlong episodes portray just how dark and dreary the great outdoors can be when a person is deep in the woods, inside an abandoned house, or along the shores of a sleepy lake, and every snap of a twig and unidentified rustle can be a sign of danger. ID's signature storytelling interweaves commentary from local authorities, true-crime experts, and psychologists, plus first-person accounts from survivors of these crimes.
Investigation Discovery and People magazine partner to re-examine some of the most high profile crime cases in recent history.

Journalist Tamron Hall leads a team of correspondents in this newsmagazine series. Each hourlong episode presents two complex and compelling crime cases, and Hall and the investigative team dig beyond the headlines to explore not only what happened in each case but also why it happened. Interviewees including detectives, prosecutors and psychological profilers -- as well as criminals and their victims -- reveal what caused people to turn to crime, then whether justice was served finally. Emmy-winning journalists Michelle Sigona and Angeline Hartmann, "America's Most Wanted" correspondent Tom Morris Jr., best-selling author Aphrodite Jones, and filmmaker Keith Beauchamp are also featured in the series.
Everyone is hiding something in "The Lies That Bind." It may be a harmless secret. Or it may be something far more serious -- a terrible betrayal or a shocking indiscretion. Investigation Discovery's true crime series tells the stories of murder investigations that expose one truth after another, revealing the sinister realities behind closely guarded facades and the dark underbellies of tight-knit communities. Investigators don't know whom to believe as interviewees harbor different points of view and tell wildly different stories.
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.

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."
