Investigation Discovery Runs With Season 5 of I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT, Beginning Wednesday, April 11

On Wednesday, April 11, Investigation Discovery hits the ground running with season five of its hit series I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT. For these perpetrators, the stories may be different, but the motives are always the same: to stay out of prison and live life on the lam. The people profiled in I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT evaded justice for years, sometimes decades, by using their families, fake identification and even violence to avoid capture. Each episode features prison interviews with the slick culprits, who divulge how they survived on the run, how they stayed under the radar, and how they almost got away with it. The 13-episode fifth season of I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT premieres Wednesday, April 11 at 9 PM E/P on Investigation Discovery.

I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT is produced by Indigo Films with David Frank as executive producer. For Investigation Discovery, Thomas Cutler is executive producer, Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.


Got to Hide Out in Suburbia Premieres Wednesday, April 11 at 9 PM E/P Robert Jeffery is running a successful drug business in Oakland, CA when his marijuana crop literally goes up in smoke. To pay off his supplier, he robs a bank but is immediately arrested and sent to jail. Jeffery goes on the run, living just out of reach of the Oakland police force while dealing drugs and pulling scams, until he meets a woman and settles down to a quiet suburban life. But when the FBI gets wind of his whereabouts, Jeffery goes on the run again until he's finally cornered at a subway station and taken into custody. Location: Oakland, CA

Got to Murder My Own Family Premieres Wednesday, April 18 at 9 PM E/P In the town of Thermopolis, police and firefighters make the gruesome discovery of a woman and three children shot dead in their burning home. The boys' brother, 15-year-old Jamie Wylie, soon confesses to the tragic crimes and is handed a life sentence in prison. One day, he masterminds a daring escape and runs into the Wyoming prairie with prison guards hot on his heels. After reaching a rest area, he hides under the wheel of a big rig and holds on for dear life as the truck barrels down the highway. Unluckily for Wylie, the truck heads back in the direction of the prison, forcing him to abandon post at a rest stop in Utah. He calls a friend to pick him up, but must act quickly when police show up instead. Location: Thermopolis, WY

Got to Build a Bridge to Freedom Premieres Wednesday, April 25 at 9 PM E/P Nicholas Johnson is a teenage robber terrorizing the streets of Portland. After pulling off a string of lucrative robberies, he is caught and sent to prison, where he immediately plans an elaborate escape. Johnson manages to smuggle knife blades into the prison by hiding them inside a guitar and, with a fellow inmate, cuts the bars to his cell and slips through the prison's high-level security system. With the help of his family, Johnson stays hidden from the law until he gets caught in a stolen car. He leads police on a dramatic foot chase until he gets cornered and rearrested. Location: Portland, OR

Got to Build a Meth Lab Premieres Wednesday, May 2 at 9 PM E/P Jerry Wright is a devoted family man whose life spirals downward after his wife leaves him. To numb the pain, he turns to alcohol and later crystal methamphetamine. He funds his addiction with a successful operation of cooking meth in a makeshift lab in the hills of Tennessee, until the lab accidentally blows up. When he demands money owed to him from his cooking partner, a fight ensues and Wright kills the man, buries the body, and flees. Delirious from the drugs and lack of sleep, he runs to his sister's home in Ohio only to get caught and sent to prison. He manages to escape despite being badly cut by the prison's razor wire, but the stress of being a fugitive wears him down. Location: Monroe County, TN

Got to Run with My Brother Premieres Wednesday, May 9 at 9 PM E/P Mark and Maverick Maher are teenage ne'er-do-wells who love to stir up trouble in the Florida suburbs. They fantasize about being in the military and form their own small-town militia, a band of youths that robs houses and breaks into cars. When they learn the police are looking for them, they raise the stakes by recording a menacing audio tape, threatening to kill any cop who tries to apprehend them. The brothers go on the run, living in the Florida swamplands before running to their sister's home in Iowa. Their brother-in-law turns them in, landing them in different prisons back in Florida, and after serving their sentences, they team up and go back to what they know best: committing crimes and getting caught. Location: Palm Beach County, FL

Got to Rob Vacation Homes Premieres Wednesday, May 16 at 9 PM E/P Serial thief William Alderman supports his new girlfriend and her 3-year-old daughter the only way he knows how: burglarizing homes and robbing people on the street. After leaving a string of crimes in his wake, Alderman and his new family settle in Idaho, where he breaks into upscale vacation homes to steal supplies, even using the little girl to help carry out his crimes. During a return trip home to Florida over the holidays, Alderman and his girlfriend try to rob a family friend, but the robbery goes awry and the man is killed. The trio returns to Idaho but is tracked down by law enforcement, which stages a huge takedown at a roadside motel and arrests the couple. Location: Florida

Got to Run to Costa Rica Premieres Wednesday, May 23 at 9 PM E/P By day, David Harden is a clean-cut, suit-and-tie-wearing insurance man who works a regular job. But at night, out comes Harden's second life as a partier and burglar. He is sent to jail for his crimes but, after getting out, returns to robbing expensive vacation homes to make ends meet. He eventually moves to Costa Rica to live his dream of running a B&B, only to return to a life of crime when the dream fizzles. He gets deported back to the U.S., but manages to slip past authorities and stay on the run until his family turns him over to the police. Rather than serve his sentence, he sneaks out of prison hidden in a trash bin and lives the life of a fugitive until a girlfriend also turns on him, leading to his arrest. Location: Central Florida

Got to Prey on Tourists Premieres Wednesday, May 30 at 9 PM E/P Despite her quiet upbringing in a Miami suburb, Patsy Jones enjoys the thrill of robbing people. She becomes the ringleader of a band of thieves, terrorizing shop owners and stealing thousands in cash. During a shopping spree, she gets arrested but talks her way out of prison time. Then she ups her game. She and her associates target tourists leaving the Miami airport by ramming their rental cars and then robbing them at gunpoint once they've pulled off to the side of the road. One evening, robbery plans go awry and Jones shoots and kills a tourist who fails to stop. She hides in an abandoned apartment building until the intense manhunt leads the police right to her doorstep. Location: Miami
