DESCRIPTION:
(from Investigation Discovery's press release, August 2019) It all starts with a 911 call. Police direct officers to the scene; body cams are activated, and dashboard video is engaged. Roll tape. Police encounter the crime scene in its entirety and record every corner, but they need more information. Suspects are taken to interrogation rooms, witnesses share their impressions, and family members' reactions are recorded. Law enforcement narrow in on an answer to the crime, and they know they have one tool to thank. In these cases, memories may be fallible, but the tapes are forever. THE MURDER TAPES premieres on Wednesday, August 28th at 10/9ct, only on Investigation Discovery. "In this show we are taking the notion of viewer-immersion to a whole new level," says Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. "By using various forms of raw, in-your-face footage, this series shows the critical role that actual recordings play in law enforcement's heart-pounding quest to capture a killer, with each tape bringing the viewer at home into the very center of the story." THE MURDER TAPES use every conceivable form of taped footage involved in a homicide case, sharing up-close perspectives from those at the scene and showing the aftermath of a murder in in a raw and unfiltered form. Viewers see and hear it all, from the initial crime scene investigations via body cam, to home security tapes, to the interrogation room footage that reveals heart-pounding confessionals. The tapes capture the reactions from loved ones and families in real time, record investigators' first impressions of the scene, and show exactly how theories begin to arise. Evidence accumulates and emotions surge, but the tapes keep rolling. Investigators know it takes time to find all the footage they need, but the revelations are worth the effort. In this series, real tapes are woven in with present-day interviews from friends, family and law enforcement directly involved in the case. Viewers see the case at its beginning and follow it to the end, proving that when the tapes roll, the truth emerges.
