[via press release from Investigation Discovery]


(Silver Spring, MD) - After the credits roll, time marches on for the people and cases featured in Investigation Discovery's hit series, and with time comes new beginnings, enduring pain, and old habits dying hard. Victims are still tormented by the crimes they survived, family and friends of the deceased try to move past the sudden and nonsensical loss of their loved one, and the convicted carry on the fight for their freedom at parole hearings... or with a shiv. In a special week of programming by Investigation Discovery, in-house crime expert Pat LaLama provides updates to cases that have already been profiled on ID. LaLama hosts wraps at the end of each 8 PM episode to reveal what has happened since the handcuffs were locked and the victims were left to pick up the pieces. With no shortage of new relationships, break out attempts, and triumphant life changes to profile, the weeklong programming stunt is designed to give ID viewers new details on the cases that shocked, saddened, and left them curious for more information. UPDATE EDITION WEEK airs nightly at 8 PM (E/P) from Monday, May 27 - Sunday, June 2 on Investigation Discovery.

"The cases we profile on Investigation Discovery continue to develop and impact people's lives long after the show airs, as these crimes forever affect everyone involved," said Kevin Bennett, general manager of Investigation Discovery. "Our viewers constantly ask 'what happened next?' and this programming week is yet another new way for ID to keep our viewers connected to the powerful and emotional stories that we profile."

The lineup for UPDATE EDITION WEEK is as follows:

DEADLY WOMEN - Episode: Lover's Revenge Update Edition Episode airs Monday, May 27 at 8 PM From the outside, Jane Andrews and Tom Cressman seemed to be an enviable pair. She was a former royal dresser to the Duchess of York, and he was a multimillionaire businessman raised in a wealthy family. But Cressman was not happy in the relationship and when he wanted out, Andrews would not give up so easily. After discovering erotic emails to another woman on Cressman's computer, Andrews snapped. Pat LaLama discovers that more than a decade in prison hasn't done much to calm Andrews' obsessions. Location: London

WICKED ATTRACTION - Episode: The Body Shifters Update Edition Episode airs Tuesday, May 28 at 8 PM When teenagers Bryan Grove and Tess Damm met, they fell madly in love and their relationship soon dominated their lives. Damm began skipping school and staying out all night, which became too much for her mom, Linda, to bear. When Linda made the mistake of trying to end their relationship, the young lovers plotted to kill her and live off the money from a life insurance payout. In this update, LaLama reveals that Damm was not the influenced and innocent daughter all along, and attempted a violent escape out of her juvenile detention center. Boulder, CO

DATES FROM HELL - Episode: Web of Seduction Update Edition Episode Airs Friday, May 31 at 8:30 PM When Gilles Tetreault met a woman through an online dating site, he was excited about the prospect of meeting her.

One day, her dreams were answered in the form of a dashing, Australian entrepreneur. After a whirlwind romance, they married only six months later. Little did she know that his charming ways were just a mask for the real man her husband was - a man who was a bigamist, compulsive liar and a thief who stole thousands of dollars from everyone that crossed his path, including his new wife.

But instead of heading to Wall Street where he had worked as a commodities broker for many years, he engaged in a covert career. Having lost his job and run out of money several months earlier, a desperate Stephen decided to bring home the bacon the old fashioned way: bank robbery. With Stephen now out of jail, LaLama updates on where he and his family stand now. Long Island, NY
