ADDITIONAL NOTES: completed airing its third season on 4/30/14; has yet to be renewed for a fourth season
DESCRIPTION: (from Investigation Discovery's press release, March 2014) The FBI estimates that there are between 35 and 50 active serial killers in the United States at any given time. It's a chilling statistic but one that becomes horrifyingly real when given a name with a face of true evil. DARK MINDS returns to Investigation Discovery this April with a two-hour investigation into Alaskan serial killer Israel Keyes. His March 2012 arrest for the murder of Samantha Koenig ended more than a decade-long killing spree that followed Keyes throughout the U.S., Canada, and even Mexico. After his arrest, Keyes revealed his sadistic nature to the FBI, alluding to the existence of at least seven possible victims and leading investigators to identify at least two others. But it all ended abruptly when Keyes committed suicide and since then, investigators have been trying to piece together the details of his disturbing life and the number of innocent lives he has taken. In this special two-hour premiere, DARK MINDS host and serial-killer expert M. William Phelps takes viewers behind the scenes of his year-long investigation into Keyes' life. Along the way, the DARK MINDS team names another possible victim that is currently unknown, and exposes secrets Keyes did not want disclosed to the media. The season three premiere of DARK MINDS debuts with this two-hour special on Israel Keyes on Wednesday, April 2 at 8/7c, and subsequent premieres of new episodes continue in its normal time slot of Wednesdays at 9/8c beginning April 9 on Investigation Discovery.
