Investigation Discovery Reveals The Truth Behind The Tragedy With True Crime With Aphrodite Jones

- Host Aphrodite Jones is Author of the Controversial Bestseller "Michael Jackson Conspiracy" -

SILVER SPRING, Md., Feb. 9 -- Journalist and bestselling author Aphrodite Jones believes that the best way to understand a criminal mind is to get inside one. In her new series, TRUE CRIME WITH APHRODITE JONES, she conducts her own investigations into some of the most infamous court cases in American history and gets to the truth behind what drives people to violence. Each hour-long episode revisits the complete story of a high-profile crime while uncovering surprising, often overlooked details that connect the dots in new and unexpected ways. From examining the motives and psyche of Scott Peterson, to chasing down a new lead in the 40-year-old Zodiac Killer mystery, to her current investigation linking Michael Jackson's death to the molestation allegations against him, Jones leaves no stone unturned to dig up the truth behind these fascinating mysteries. As an expert storyteller and a regular commentator on headline-making court cases, TRUE CRIME is her life's work, presented in a gripping, fast-paced television series. Investigation Discovery, America's leading investigation network and fastest-growing ad-supported cable network for women 25-54, presents TRUE CRIME WITH APHRODITE JONES, beginning Thursday, March 11 at 10 PM (ET),

"Aphrodite Jones's career as a successful crime writer has established her in pop culture as a real-world sleuth, and we couldn't be more thrilled to have such a powerful talent join ID," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager, Investigation Discovery. "Each episode of TRUE CRIME brings Aphrodite's fresh perspective and unique insight to these mysteries, and employs her exceptional ability to look closer at the details and make connections that may have been buried beneath the headlines."

Aphrodite Jones immerses herself in each story, landing pivotal interviews and gaining extraordinary access to those connected to these sensational cases. Using investigative work and never-before-seen interviews, this series breaks down the deranged strategies of both notorious and previously unknown perpetrators. Each of the ten episodes of TRUE CRIME WITH APHRODITE JONES leads audiences through the twists and turns of these stories in an attempt to reveal the motivations of perpetrators and ask an often forgotten question � why? As an advocate for victim's rights, Jones believes that understanding what makes criminals tick reveals opportunities for viewers to protect them from becoming victims themselves.

Other topics explored in TRUE CRIME WITH APHRODITE JONES include the Menendez Brothers, the O.J. Simpson trials, Chandra Levy's murder and the Phil Spector conviction.

With eight bestselling books under her belt, and hundreds of television appearances, Aphrodite Jones is a highly recognized name in the field of crime profiling. For over a decade, The New York Times bestselling author has provided commentary on high profile crimes for FOX News, CNN, HLN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, and E! Network, focusing on providing insights into personalities such as Michael Jackson, O.J. Simpson, Scott Peterson and Phil Spector. An investigative journalist for more than 20 years, Jones earned her stripes as a syndicated columnist before creating and hosting a crime fighting series for USA network called "The Justice Hunters." Valued as a crime expert to journalists worldwide, Jones has been quoted by news organizations from Australia, China, Japan, Western Europe, Canada, and South America. Two of Jones' books were made into Lifetime TV movies, and her account of Brandon Teena, "All She Wanted," was the inspiration for the critically acclaimed feature film "Boys Don't Cry." She currently lives in New York and Florida. Visit her website at www.aphroditejones.com
