[via press release from Investigation Discovery]


(Silver Spring, Md) - TRUE CRIME WITH APHRODITE JONES is back for its sophomore season on Investigation Discovery, America's fastest-growing cable network. A true crime series for tabloid aficionados, each episode follows best-selling author and recognized crime expert Aphrodite Jones as she conducts her own investigations into some of the most headline-making crime stories of our time. Jones lands pivotal interviews and gains insider access to those connected to the case, revealing either new evidence or conducting exclusive interviews in each episode of TRUE CRIME. From never-before-seen footage of JonBen�t Ramsey to an exclusive interview with a confidant of Anna Nicole Smith, Jones reveals shocking new details of crimes you thought you knew. Season two of TRUE CRIME WITH APHRODITE JONES premieres Thursday, March 31 at 10 PM (ET) on Investigation Discovery.

"We're thrilled to have our hit series TRUE CRIME WITH APHRODITE JONES back for another season on Investigation Discovery," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager, Investigation Discovery. "Aphrodite Jones is a fearless journalist and dynamic host who is not afraid to explore new theories or evidence that may have been buried beneath the headlines, and her ability to secure extraordinary access gives viewers an exclusive look into these unforgettable stories."

The March 31 premiere of TRUE CRIME features an in-depth look into the still unsolved death of six-year-old JonBen�t Ramsey. Jones interviews one of the key investigators of her death and sheds new insight into the Ramsey family and their private persona, landing never-before-seen home videos and photos of JonBen�t, as well as showing interviews with the Ramsey family that have not been shown in the U.S. before.

Then on Thursday, April 7, Jones provides an hour-long expos� into the life and tragic death of Anna Nicole Smith. In addition to an emotional original interview with Larry Birkhead, Jones conducts an exclusive interview with Ray Martino, a close personal friend of Smith, and her son Daniel's unofficial guardian. Martino speaks on television for the first time, providing intimate details about Smith's home life and revelations behind both Anna Nicole and Daniel's true personalities � both of which the media so often got wrong. Subsequent cases examined in TRUE CRIME include a serial killer made famous by his appearance on a game show, a horrifying murder spree by a religious cult who called themselves "The Children of Thunder," the Reality Show Killer and the West Memphis Three.


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 best-selling 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." Two of Jones's 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 both New York and Florida. Visit her website at www.aphroditejones.com.
