Who Is the ‘Golden State Killer’ and Will They Be Caught? People Magazine Investigates Will Explore the Case in …

A suspected serial killer still at-large, a toddler who disappeared in the woods and a Connecticut family held hostage in their home: These will be three of the 12 cases spotlighted when People Magazine Investigates returns next month for its second season, on Investigation Discovery.

The breakout hit show, which draws from the original reporting of PEOPLE’s award-winning true crime team, will premiere season 2 on Nov. 6 at 10 p.m. ET.

Among the cases that will be featured in the 12-episode season is an in-depth look at the hunt for the “Golden State Killer” — also known as the “The East Area Rapist” and “The Original Nightstalker” — who is suspected of killing 12 people and sexually assaulting dozens of others in California in the ’70s and ’80s.

Other episodes will focus on 2-year-old DeOrr Kunz, who

Caught In Raging MS-13 Crossfire: Teens Unlawfully Detained In Gang Sweeps, NYCLU, Attorney Says

BELLPORT, NY — After a recent vow in Suffolk County by President Donald Trump to take down the violent MS-13 street gang, who the president says has turned quiet communities into “blood-stained killing fields,” the focus has been on a fierce crackdown by law enforcement meant to eradicate the vicious threat and restore a sense of peace and safety.

But there are innocent young victims caught in the crossfire, according to the New York Civil Liberties Union and an attorney representing the teens, who, advocates say, have been wrongly accused of MS-13 gang affiliation or ties.

One young man from the South Country School District in Bellport has been rounded up and sent miles from home to Virginia, far from his terrified mother, who barely speaks English — all because he made a hand gesture in the hallway at school, his attorney Peter Brill said.

Other teens have been unfairly targeted as

Dumb criminals keep getting caught thanks to pizza

When AJ Soprano and his pals vandalized the pool at his prep school on “The Sopranos,” it wasn’t a snitch that brought them down — it was pizza.

Specifically a pizza with double meatballs, pepperoni, sausage, peppers, onions and extra “moozadell.” After cops confront the pizza man with the evidence and ask who had purchased the pie, he reluctantly drops a dime on AJ. The teen faces expulsion — and the wrath of his mob-boss father.

But this saucy scenario isn’t limited to fiction. In the last two years, pies have helped crack nearly a half-dozen high-profile crimes.

Pizza deliveries tipped cops off to international fugitives and preserved DNA evidence that blew open a gruesome D.C.-area quadruple homicide. Most recently in Illinois, a mugging of a pizzaman led investigators to criminals who had just murdered a man in Georgia.

Call it a slice of justice.

“Pizza hunger trumps better judgement,” says Candice DeLong, a former

Gone Without a Trace: Will Baby Lisa’s Abductor Be Caught?

For more than five years, the parents of missing Lisa Irwin — who disappeared in October 2011 from her crib just a few weeks shy of her first birthday — have insisted she was taken from their home in Kansas City, Missouri.

Police don’t know what to believe, or who might be to blame.

“It’s hard to say that somebody isn’t a suspect when you don’t have any,” Kansas City police Maj. Steve Young tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on newsstands now. “But truly, there isn’t anybody that is or isn’t.”

The unsolved mystery began the night of Oct. 3, 2011. Lisa’s father, Jeremy Irwin, was working a late job as an electrical contractor; her mother, Deborah Bradley, was at the family’s home in their working-class neighborhood with 10-month-old Lisa and her two older brothers.

Deborah spent the
