Three New Series  Returning Favorite Head to Investigation Discovery This October

This October, Investigation Discovery, America’s most-watched true crime network, celebrates the spookiest month of the year with the scariest stories of all: ones that are real. Featuring the premiere of three new series and the return of one hair-raising fan-favorite, ID’s packed lineup is sure to make you question what that bump in the night truly is.

The month kicks off with a new series that hits a little too close to home. In HOME ALONE (Thursday, October 12 at 10/9c), quiet, suburban homes become the setting for unimaginable horror, featuring stories of angry stalkers, disgruntled exes and holiday celebrations turned bloody. Four days later comes the premiere of HORROR AT THE CECIL HOTEL (Monday, October 16 at 10/9c), which explores the shocking number of deaths and tragedies associated with Los Angeles’

What the new wave of true-crime TV could teach us – if we let it

True-crime stories used to keep me awake nights.

Truman Capote’s classic In Cold Blood; Ann Rule, writing about her old friend, serial killer Ted Bundy, in The Stranger Beside Me: These were the gateways to an addiction that left me more nervous about violent crime — not to mention the possibility that casual acquaintances might be homicidal psychopaths — than  I had any right to be statistically.

When I eventually kicked the habit and returned to novels, I breathed easier. Turns out I’m fine with murder mysteries as long as they’re fictional.

On television, I learned to avoid those 48 Hours episodes that might trigger a relapse, and if I was watching the Investigation Discovery channel, you can bet it was work-related. Because I don’t think it’s an accident that the network of  Evil Twins and Deadly Women offers a prize for the “ID Addict of the

Killer Miles Evans two giveaway signs he murdered stepdaughter …

Convicted murderer Miles Evans tried to fool investigators with an emotional plea following the disappearance of his nine-year-old stepdaughter, but two key blunders blew his cover.

Zoe Evans went missing from her home in Warminster, UK, on January 11, 1997, and according to a new documentary, the televised police appeal Evans gave alongside her mother Paula three days later was ladened with giveaway signs that outed him as a liar.

Attempts to deflect attention away from himself backfired, and his body language gave a key indication that Evans, a Private in the Royal Logistics Corps, was responsible for the young girl’s disappearance, Daily Mail reported.

Indulging in a Life of Crime (and Wine)

When the true crime network Investigation Discovery announced its new wine club back in early June, my initial reaction was to burst out laughing. Part of it was the punny names: The Perfect Accomplice Sauvignon Blanc, A Wine To Remember Red Wine Blend (inspired by “ID’s pre-forensic thriller,” A Crime To Remember), and My, My, My Merlot (riffing on retired detective and ID fan favorite Joe Kenda’s “my, my, my” catchphrase).

More than that, though, I was laughing because I felt seen. As an avid consumer of both wine and true crime television, I’m this product’s target audience. If I can make fun of myself for a moment, I’ve become a trope.

Drinking alone while watching true crime television is becoming a caricature in the way of crying alone into a pint of ice cream. The only thing I was missing at the time was a

Revealed: How killer Miles Evans let slip TWO tell-tale signs of deception and faked his sadness for the cameras …

Killer soldier Miles Evans let slip two signs of deception as he appealed for help finding his stepdaughter days after he murdered the schoolgirl outside her home in an army town, a new documentary reveals.

Nine-year-old Zoe Evans went missing from her home in Warminster, Wiltshire, on 11 January 1997, shortly after her mother Paula had tucked her into bed and kissed her goodnight.

Days later Evans, an army lorry driver, appeared alongside his wife in a televised police appeal for information on the missing girl, faking his concern as he told Zoe there would be ‘lots of cuddles’ for her if she came home.

However Evans, a Private in the Royal Logistics Corps, was only playing the role of the concerned parent in a bid to deflect police interest in him. For 72 hours earlier he had taken Zoe from her bed, punched her in the
