[via press release from Investigation Discovery]


-- A CRIME TO REMEMBER received a News & Documentary Emmy(R) for the craft category of Outstanding Lighting Direction & Scenic Design --

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Investigation Discovery (ID) returns to profile the bad old days of the '50s and '60s with season two of A CRIME TO REMEMBER. Set against the backdrop of Studebakers, fedoras, and three-martini lunches, these stories of truly mad men and women reveal complicated relationships where thwarted dreams and repressed passions led to terrible crimes. Each hour-long episode treats the viewer to the "through-the-looking-glass" experience of crime solving in decades past, in a pre-DNA era when 911 didn't even exist. It wasn't just the criminals who confounded the cops, the cultural taboos and social norms of the time were also obstacles in the pursuit of justice.

Long-forgotten cases are brought to life and new details about infamous crimes are revealed. The Kitty Genovese murder captured the attention of the world, not because of the victim or killer, but because of the witnesses, and the Case of Ruby McCollum - a shooting in the Jim Crow South - could be the most famous murder you've never heard of.

A CRIME TO REMEMBER's feature film style cinematography showcases high-end production design, representing the time period with authenticity and flair, earing the first season a News & Documentary Emmy(R) for its artful execution. With eight new episodes, each hour of A CRIME TO REMEMBER plays out like a dramatic period thriller, returning on Tuesday, November 11 at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery.

"Viewers will find the same high quality and sleek cinematic style when A CRIME TO REMEMBER returns, which rightfully earned it an Emmy for the first season," said Kevin Bennett, General Manager, Investigation Discovery and American Heroes Channel. "This is ID's nod to crimes of yesteryear, truly a commentary on society during the '50s and '60s, showing us how far we've come in some cases, but sadly also reminding us of how some things have not changed."

In A CRIME TO REMEMBER, viewers step into the past and unravel the intricacies of real-life murder cases from the '50s and '60s. Each narrative is driven by the voice of a fictional bystander who "knew" the victim, while reporters and police who lived through the actual case explain how the impact of the crime and investigation sent shockwaves through the community. A CRIME TO REMEMBER showcases the most compelling crimes of our past, when murder erupted from the same dark places as today, but the cops had to catch the killer with little more than a fingerprint duster and a Rolodex.

The complete episode rundown for season two of A CRIME TO REMEMBER is as follows:

Kitty Genovese Episode Premieres Tuesday, November 11 at 10/9c Queens, 1964: When Kitty Genovese is stabbed to death outside of her Kew Gardens apartment building, police are surprised to find that many of her neighbors heard or saw something. The New York Times accuses 37 witnesses of watching Kitty's rape and murder for a half hour and doing nothing to help. The article sparks nation-wide hysteria, and introduces Americans to the modern psychological phenomenon known as the "bystander effect". The nation finds Kew Gardens guilty, but is that really the whole story?

McCollum Premiere Date TBD Live Oak, FL, 1952: The beloved Dr. Leroy Adams, a son of the Confederacy, is shot to death in his office, and the woman responsible is Ruby McCollum, whose husband Sam is the wealthiest African-American in all of Live Oak. In a time of segregation and secrets in the Jim Crow south, figuring out who is responsible may not be as easy as simply identifying the killer.

Mossler Premiere Date TBD Key Biscayne, FL, 1964: Candy Mossler finds her multi-millionaire husband, Jacques, stabbed to death in their apartment. In the days that follow, detectives embark on a manhunt that takes them from the glittering heights of Miami's upper crust to the swampy underbelly of Houston, and are swept into a twisted tale of incest, secret gay affairs and greed.

Whitman Premiere Date TBD Austin, TX, 1966: A rain of bullets descends on students and faculty at the University of Texas. Policemen and civilians alike come together to save the wounded and put an end to the violence. But when the smoke clears, there remain more questions than answers: who could have done this evil, hideous thing, and why?

Miller Premiere Date TBD San Bernardino, CA, 1964: When Lucille and Cork Miller's car crashes, Lucille barely makes it out alive and Cork burns to death inside. Half of the evidence suggests it was a terrible accident, but the other half suggests something far more sinister. Could Lucille have wanted Cork out of the picture? With life insurance payouts and a secret affair, investigators see plenty of motive. But are they seeing guilt where there is none?

Schmid Premiere Date TBD Tucson, AZ, 1965: When Gretchen Fritz and her sister, Wendy, disappear from a drive-in theater, it seems that they've vanished into thin air. In order to discover what happened, police must infiltrate the tight-knit, closed-mouth world of teens hanging out on the Speedway Strip - a world separate from the adult world, one seemingly without consequence - to discover the disturbing truth behind the girls' disappearance.

Abbot Premiere Date TBD Berkeley, CA, 1955: Fourteen-year-old Stephanie Bryan has disappeared without a trace, and months go by without a single development in the case. Then, a miraculous break: a woman from nearby Alameda finds a clue to the case in her very own basement. But how did it get there? Police have to use every tool at their disposal, along with a little help from an intrepid newspaper reporter and a pack of bloodhounds, to uncover what exactly happened to little Stephanie Bryan.

Greenlease Premiere Date TBD Kansas City, MO, 1953: Six-year-old Bobby Greenlease, the son of multi-millionaire Robert Greenlease, Sr., has been kidnapped. When the largest ransom payout in history fails to bring Bobby's safe return, it falls to the hands of St. Louis's shadiest characters to track down the culprits. A sordid story of love, alcoholism, and greed, the kidnapping of Bobby Greenlease revolutionizes the American public school system, as parents and children alike realize that no one is safe.
