The first three days after somebody is abducted are extremely important. Statistically, the chances of finding the abductee alive diminish significantly after the first 72 hours. "Three Days to Live" chronicles kidnapping cases, using re-creations and first-hand testimony from authorities and loved ones to illustrate what went on -- from the crucial periods early on in the cases, which all feature females who were taken, through the twists and turns the kidnappings took before reaching their conclusions. Journalist SuChin Pak narrates the hourlong series.

Social media was in its infancy in 2004, but the explosion in its popularity in the years since then has kept alive a missing-person case. Nursing student Maura Murray vanished in February 2004 after witnesses heard what sounded like a car crash. The case has led a legion of armchair detectives to come up with their own theories about the apparent crime on blogs, websites and podcasts. In this series, investigative journalist Maggie Freleng tries to unravel a slew of unexplored leads, eyewitness discrepancies and missing evidence that have cropped up online. She receives rare access to Maura's family and friends and talks with people who have dedicated countless hours to searching for the truth in the case. Freleng retraces Maura's last-known steps to try to find out what really happened and tackle the unanswered questions that remain -- perhaps most importantly, did Maura choose to disappear or was she a victim of foul play?

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.
