IN BROAD DAYLIGHT - Sunday, October 30 at 10 PM ET

In a small town outside Atlanta, a young mother is gunned down in broad daylight, while stunned eyewitnesses search for cover. The victim, Heather Strube, was in a Target parking lot to pick up her 18-month-old son from her estranged husband. Police must unravel the mysterious killing with little to go on beyond a bizarre description of the brazen killer and the surveillance video of him walking away from the crime scene.

DEATH AND THE DOCTOR - Sunday, November 6 at 10 PM ET

Margo Prade was a prominent doctor with a thriving medical practice in Akron, Ohio. When she is discovered shot and killed in her van parked outside her office, police are eager to solve the crime. Margo was one of their own, married for 17 years to a highly respected captain in the Akron Police Department. Investigators quickly discover a videotape that documents the murder, but the most important clue is a bizarre bite mark left behind by the killer. The controversial case divides the police force and has investigators looking over their own shoulders before they can solve the crime.

SEVERED TIES - Sunday, November 13 at 10 PM ET

Cathy Robertson and her husband, Lyndel, were both shot multiple times while they slept in the quiet bedroom of their family's farm house. Cathy died at the scene, but somehow, Lyndel survived despite being shot in the face and chest. As police search for Cathy's killer, they come upon two teenage suspects. Will a mysterious fingerprint on a box of ammunition be the key to unlocking the mystery behind the brutal crime?

NO ONE TO TRUST - Sunday, November 20 at 10 PM ET

Eighteen-year-old Lisa Kimmell was driving home for the Easter holiday when she vanished somewhere on the 600 miles of desolate highway between Denver, Colorado and Billings, Montana. The case would span fourteen years and examine dozens of suspects, including the man in charge of the investigation, before reaching its shocking conclusion.

A STRANGER'S KNOCK - Sunday, December 4 at 10 PM ET

Norma Ates was shot and killed in her own bedroom. Her body was discovered when firefighters responded to a fire at her house. Investigators suspected the killer had staged the scene to make it look like a robbery gone wrong and then set the home on fire to cover their tracks. After years of searching, police finally find two mysterious strangers who had been seen outside the house just before the crime took place. Their story will help solve the mystery and convict the most unlikely of suspects.
