Suspect Convictions Episode 4: True-Crime Experts Give Case Fresh Look

GLT is partnering with the true crime podcast Suspect Convictions to explore the 1998 murder of 3-year-old Bloomington girl Christina McNeil.

Investigation Discovery’s Homicide Hunter with Detective Lt. Joe Kenda, formerly of the Colorado Springs Police Department, is the top-rated show on the network, pulling in an average of nearly 2 million viewers per week.
