Across the Deep South, heat, humidity and darn good hiding places provide a perfect backdrop for dark, despicable deeds.

The Investigation Discovery network has announced two new series – “Swamp Murders,” debuting at 9 p.m. June 4, and “Southern Fried Homicide,” debuting at 9 p.m. June 5 — that will spotlight Louisiana crimes.

Actress Shanna Forrestall, a Gonzalez native, hosts “Southern Fried Homicide,” which is filming near New Orleans this week.
