From the moment a homicide is reported, a file is assembled to document every facet of the investigation -- crime scene photos, notes and observations, forensic reports, witness interviews, suspect profiles -- and continues to grow with new information until an arrest is made and conviction attained. Investigation Discovery opens these "murder books" to tell haunting tales buried within the pages. Hourlong episodes take viewers back in time with details of decades-old cold cases using actual archival footage, crime-scene evidence and first-person interviews with lead investigators, unraveling the mystery and uncovering what broke the cases open.
