Think "Cold Case" meets "CSI" with a bit of "Rizzoli & Isles" mixed in, then make it real. That's the formula for this unscripted procedural drama that follows two veteran female investigators as they attempt to crack murder cases that have lingered for years without answers and closure. Kelly Siegler is an attorney and former Texas prosecutor who successfully tried 68 murder cases in her 21 years on the job, including 20 capital murder death penalty cases in which she secured the death penalty in 19 of those trials. She gets help from veteran detectives, who dig into small-town murder cases that have gone unsolved for years in the hope of getting justice for the victims and their loved ones.
On May 30, 2005, 18-year-old Natalee Holloway disappeared on the island of Aruba. Her case resulted in a worldwide media frenzy, yet Natalee's body was never found, and her father, Dave Holloway, has never stopped searching for answers. Now, 12 years later, he's following what he believes to be the most credible lead to date: a detailed firsthand account from a man who claims to know the whereabouts of his daughter's remains, and the hope of finally getting a conviction of Joran van der Sloot. This true crime series follows Dave and T.J. Ward, the family's longtime private investigator, in the latest and perhaps final chapter of the decade-long pursuit to uncover what really happened to Natalee.
Social media can be a good thing when used properly, allowing people to catch up with friends and family who don't live nearby. Things can go wrong, though, when it's not used the right way. This series shows extreme examples of the negative outcomes that can result from social media usage. Episodes tell the stories of cases in which social media activity had dangerous -- sometimes deadly -- consequences. Cinematic re-enactments, witness testimony and expert interviews are used to present the tales that begin with something as simple as an online post or tweet and end with violence. Cases include an online feud between friends that results in a physical altercation and a seemingly innocent online connection to leads to a homicide.
Oxygen's long-running "Snapped" true-crime series takes a look at cases involving women who are accused of murder. In "Snapped: She Made Me Do It," women are the supposed masterminds behind deadly acts, but aren't necessarily the ones accused of the crimes. As is customary with these types of shows, witness testimony, interviews with experts and dramatic reenactments are used to tell the story of each case. Viewers get both sides of the story in each case before finding out the jury's verdict. Romance is often at the core of the attacks.
Some of the world's most notorious murders are the subject of "It Takes a Killer," which investigates the crimes from the perspective of the killers, trying to get inside their minds and determine their motives. Leading homicide investigators and experts from such agencies as the FBI and Scotland Yard take a look at the evidence pulled from crime scenes and profile the killer's behavior to try to piece together the details of each murder, explaining when, why and how each criminal committed the crime. For the wannabe detectives watching the show, the experts also reveal how the crime was solved -- which often requires authorities to think like a killer.
