Program to feature Baytown murder

On Halloween 1985, a madman walked the streets of Baytown. 

Mary Stiles, an 11-year-old Horace Mann Junior School student, had gone out trick-or-treating dressed in Care Bear pajamas with her hair in pigtails. She was later found dead, her body hidden under some leaves and tree limbs behind an apartment complex on Northwood Drive. 

Tonight, the tale of her shocking murder is being featured on “On the Case with Paula Zahn” at 9 p.m. on the Investigation Discovery Network. 

Although it happened almost 32 years ago, the case still haunts those who remember it. Baytown Assistant Police Chief Roger Clifford was a patrol

Investigation Discovery to feature Kingsville shooting – KZTV10.com | Continuous News Coverage | Corpus Christi


It was August 9, 2003. A break-up between a Kingsville couple takes an unforeseen turn when an ex-lover turns to a felonious solution.

Former career law enforcement officer Alberto Benitez never expected that the dissolution of his seven-month relationship with Elizabeth Reynolds would result in an attempted murder on his life.

A presumable retaliation involving a convicted criminal’s past, Benitez never perceived a home invasion as an actual murder-for-hire arranged by his former intimate companion.

It was a case that drew national attention as the story unfolded in an investigation by the intended target.

Benitez’s story is a part of the Investigation Discovery’s new tv show “Murder Calls.”

You can watch the full episode tonight at 9 p.m.

National TV show to feature homicide case of Spartanburg teen Alex Davon Buckman

A 2005 Spartanburg County homicide is being featured on a cable television show and is helping a grieving family heal.

Investigation Discovery’s “I, Witness” will air at 9 p.m. Wednesday and feature the case of Alex Davon Buckman, a 17-year-old who was killed and dismembered and dumped in an Abbeville landfill.

The show will feature LaCresha Stanton, Buckman’s sister, who was at the forefront of search efforts during the roughly eight months preceding the discovery of his remains.

Stanton said was busy working with investigators and organizing search parties after her younger brother disappeared on March 23, 2005. She never had time to process the loss, but working on the television show finally gave her that chance, she said.

“When I started to do the show, my ‘bottom’ happened. Mentally, I shut down. I had to deal with it. It was the

It began with a knock at the front door of her childhood home in North Kitsap. The police officer who stood on the step simply handed Mroz’s mother, Joan Jensen, a note with a phone number to call.

On the other side of that phone number

Investigation Discovery episode to feature Gliniewicz case

Another national TV network will delve into the Fox Lake suicide case that made headlines across the country and around the world.

Investigation Discovery, a cable outlet owned by the company that created the Discovery Channel, will air as part of a new series called “Married with Secrets” an episode Tuesday at 9 p.m. focused on the shooting death of Fox Lake Police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, who investigators say staged his suicide to look like a murder when he feared his thefts from the youth program he ran would be uncovered.

“The goal of the series is to tell stories of people who seem to have these picture-perfect marriages, but then you peel back the layers,” said Executive Producer Pam Deutsch, who first came across the story in September 2015 when the death had not yet been ruled a suicide.

“What’s so interesting about his story is he really took advantage of
