The true-crime network, Investigation Discovery, will be retelling the local double homicide case of Charlie and Diane Parker on its series “Unusual Suspects: Deadly Intent” at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 27.

The Parkers were found shot to death in their Conway home in 2005, but investigators were initially stumped by the little evidence left behind at the crime scene and by the fact that the couple had even fewer enemies, according to a release from Investigation Discovery.

The gruesome crime gained national attention.

Richard Gagnon, who was dating the couple’s daughter, was ultimately charged with their murder after police found Charles Parker Sr.’s blood on his shoes.

Carlo Lamarr-Marquis Owens, who is spending life in prison for the murders

Tonight’s installment of Detective on Investigation Discovery probes the double murder of a couple at Ohio State University in Columbus.

The episode, titled Campus Killer, pieces together the fateful night in January 1999 when Loretta Long and her boyfriend, Patrick Pryor, planned to watch a movie at her campus apartment.

A roommate later discovered their bloody bodies, which had been gunned down.

Police’s investigation of the killings apparently accelerated after they found out Loretta was being stalked.

Long, 21, and Pryor, 20, both died from multiple gunshot wounds. Police were initially baffled by the incident, as drugs didn’t appear to be involved and a motive wasn’t quickly established.

“This thing is just so incredibly horrific because it was so off the wall; it

A double life: The story of The Ether man

It can be argued that everyone has skeletons in their closet, but some have darker secrets than others. 

Investigation Discovery, an American television network, amassed a true-crime series called “Married with Secrets” that tells the stories of people living double lives.

“This true-crime series shows that there is always something behind the white picket fence,” Investigation Discovery executive producer Pamela Deutsch said.

One episode tells the story of convicted American serial rapist Robert Howard Bruce, also known as “The Ether Man.”

Oklahoma court records show Bruce pleaded guilty and/or no contest in 2013 to 19 felony counts including first-degree rape, sexual battery, forcible sodomy and first-degree burglary. He is now serving his 177 years at an unknown federal facility.

Bruce terrorized Norman women from 1985 to 2006, and continued victimizing women in Texas and New Mexico until he was caught in 2010.

“He was a very disturbed individual,” retired Norman Det. Jim Parks said. “His first
