Ralph Penrod murdered lifelong friend Mary Jane Wever by shooting her in the back of the head before dumping her body in woodland.

By the time her remains were found — by two ATV riders searching for a lost wallet — they were so decomposed an anthropology professor had to put together a composite sketch in a bid to identify the corpse.

The case features tonight on a new episode of Investigation Discovery series Who Killed Jane Doe?

Penrod, who had known Wever since they were kids and had moved in with her following her husband’s death, shot her as they travelled through Wildwood, Florida, in April 2013.

He had told Wever they were moving from Greensburg, Kentucky,

Jennifer Schuett survived her ordeal and now fights for justice for others

This week Married with Secrets features the story of Arkansas couple Lisa and Dennis Bradford, who have a seemingly perfect marriage until cops turn up at their door one day.

The law enforcement officers were there to arrest Dennis for a terrible crime that was committed 19 years earlier,  the kidnap and rape of eight-year-old Jennifer Schuett.

In 1990 Schuett was abducted through her bedroom window around 2 a.m. in the morning and driven to an empty field, her attacker choking her on the way. She was then assaulted and her throat was cut, with her kidnapper then dumping her body on a fire ant mound and leaving her to die.

However, she survived the ordeal and was found by some local children. Some

TV show features 2012 Sandown murder – Eagle

New Hampshire residents flipping through television channels Tuesday night may have stumbled upon some familiar faces. 

The Investigation Discovery show “Six Degrees of Murder” covered the 2012 murder of Richard Mannion in an episode that aired Tuesday. More than half of murders are committed by someone the victim knew, and the television show recounts cases in which investigators had to untangle a complicated web of relationships to solve the crime. 

Prosecutors, police detectives and family members of the victim were interviewed for the show, as well as former Eagle-Tribune reporter and current Daily News of Newburyport night editor Doug Ireland. 

Ireland, who covered the case from the start of the investigation through the conviction of Mannion’s murderer, said he learned a lot while filming the episode. 

“I kind of went into it thinking that, of all of the murder cases I’ve covered, this was the least interesting,” Ireland said before seeing the show. “I’m actually looking

TV show features El Cajon man’s 2015 disappearance – The San Diego Union

More than a year has passed since the night Elijah “Bear” Diaz vanished after his mother dropped him off at his house in El Cajon.

In the weeks leading up to his August 2015 disappearance, acute complications of Type 1 diabetes left Diaz, then 20, feeble. Among the side effects were blisters and wounds on his feet that forced him to use crutches.

In those days he felt increasingly dispirited and frustrated with his poor health.

Then, on Aug. 29, 2015, he vanished — along with his crutches, 50-inch TV, bed sheets, a backpack and contents of a safe, which was left open. No one has seen or heard from him since.

Tonight’s See No Evil on Investigation Discovery tracks Arkansas police searching for the whereabouts of teen Casey Crowder, who disappeared early one morning in August 2006 after her car ran out of gas outside the tiny city of Dumas.

The episode, titled Breakdown at Daylight, follows investigators — who don’t have any leads or witnesses — scrambling to find closed-circuit cameras that might lead them to the missing 17-year-old.

Crowder was a senior at Watson Chapel High School and had been driving from her boyfriend’s place in Pickens to her home in Pine Bluff when her car ran out of gas on the highway.

Her body was later found in September 2006 near a drainage canal with a black zip-tie around her neck.
