People Magazine Investigates: Case of Missing DeOrr Kunz …

The campout in a remote patch of the Idaho mountains promised a fun time for 2-year-old DeOrr Kunz, who went on vacation with his parents, grandfather and his grandfather’s friend.

With the assurance that “Grandpa Bob” Walton would keep an eye on him, DeOrr’s mom, Jessica Mitchell, and father, who is also named DeOrr Kunz but also goes by Vernal, walked off from the campsite to go fishing on July 10, 2015 — but when the boy’s dad returned, the son they lovingly called “Little Man” was nowhere to be found.

More than two years later, the enduring mystery of what happened to the still-lost little boy is the focus of tonight’s episode of People Magazine Investigates, which airs at 10 p.m. ET on Investigation Discovery.

After DeOrr’s parents called 911, law enforcement believed the boy had wandered into the woods surrounding the Timber

IDAHO FALLS — Investigation Discovery and People magazine have partnered to examine the case of DeOrr Kunz Jr. in an hour-long special called “Where is Baby DeOrr?” that will air tonight (Nov. 13).

The Idaho Falls toddler vanished in July 2015 while on a camping trip in Lemhi County with his parents, great-grandfather and a friend of his great-grandfather. There has been no sign of DeOrr since that day, and nobody has been charged in connection to his disappearance.

A producer and camera crew with People Magazine Investigates visited east Idaho in May and spent several days speaking with individuals involved in the case. The show includes interviews with Jessica Mitchell (DeOrr’s mother), Trina Bates Clegg

THE LOST WIFE OF ROBERT DURST

With no shortage of murders, rapes, abductions, and unexplained disappearances dominating the news, the true crime drama has risen in popularity, with programs about perpetrators and victims dominating the cable landscape on channels like Lifetime, Oxygen and Investigation Discovery.

The heinous crimes of two notorious serial killers, a child kidnapper, an Olympian who shot his girlfriend and a surgeon who killed his family get the TV movie treatment in these exciting new offerings.

The subject of the 2015 HBO documentary series The Jinx, real estate heir Robert Durst is currently in prison for the murder of his friend Susan Berman. He’s also the prime suspect in the death of his wife Kathleen McCormack Durst, who disappeared 18 years earlier in January 1982 and was never seen again. Lifetime’s The Lost Wife of Robert Durst focuses on their relationship, what went wrong, and why.

People Magazine Investigates Tracks the Hunt for the Golden State Serial Killer, Who Killed 12 and Raped 45

He progressed from rape to murder, wearing a ski mask and shining a flashlight into his victims’ eyes.

Over a 10-year-period — from 1976 to 1986 — he was linked by DNA and M.O. to 12 murders, 45 sexual assaults and more than 120 burglaries from Sacramento to southern California’s Orange County. He is still at large.

The case of the Golden State Serial Killer — also known as the East Area Rapist and the Original Night Stalker — is the subject of the first episode of season 2 of People Magazine Investigates, which airs Monday (10 p.m. ET) on Investigation Discovery

The breakout hit show draws from the original reporting of PEOPLE’s award-winning true crime team.

Inside the Hunt For the Golden State Serial Killer Who Killed 12 and Raped 45 in California

It was around 6:30 a.m., on October 5, 1976, when Jane Sandler heard footsteps running toward her bedroom in her ranch style house in Citrus Heights, California, a middle class suburb of Sacramento.

Thinking it was her husband, who had just left for work for the day, Sandler, a 30-year-old Air Force reserve captain, said, “What did you forget?”

That’s when she looked up and saw an intruder wearing a black ski mask shining a flashlight in her face. As she clutched her three-year-old son next to her, he put a large knife to her chest and muttered, “Shut up, I will kill you.”

The intruder quickly tied their hands, blindfolded them, and tied her feet using sheets from her bed.

“He had this ritual of ripping and tearing these sheets,” Sandler, now 71 and the author of Frozen in Fear: A True Story
