Inside the Hunt For the Golden State Serial Killer Who Killed 12 and Raped 45 in California

It was around 6:30 a.m., on October 5, 1976, when Jane Sandler heard footsteps running toward her bedroom in her ranch style house in Citrus Heights, California, a middle class suburb of Sacramento.

Thinking it was her husband, who had just left for work for the day, Sandler, a 30-year-old Air Force reserve captain, said, “What did you forget?”

That’s when she looked up and saw an intruder wearing a black ski mask shining a flashlight in her face. As she clutched her three-year-old son next to her, he put a large knife to her chest and muttered, “Shut up, I will kill you.”

The intruder quickly tied their hands, blindfolded them, and tied her feet using sheets from her bed.

“He had this ritual of ripping and tearing these sheets,” Sandler, now 71 and the author of Frozen in Fear: A True Story

Is He Innocent? Inside the Case of Green Beret Surgeon Convicted of Killing His Wife and Daughters

For the past 47 years, former Green Beret surgeon Jeffrey MacDonald‘s account of what happened the night his entire family was murdered has remained the same.

MacDonald has said four intruders killed his wife, Colette, 26, and daughters Kimberley, 5, and Kristen, 2, at their Fort Bragg, North Carolina home on Feb. 17, 1970. One of the intruders, he has said, was a woman with long blonde hair, wearing a floppy hat, holding what appeared to be a candle and chanting, “Acid is groovy. Kill the pigs.”

When military police arrived at their home, MacDonald was lying next to his wife in their bedroom; he says he’d been trying in vain to resuscitate her and their two daughters. He was unconscious, with head injuries, several stab wounds and a partially collapsed lung.

Inside a Homicide Detective’s 14 Years on the Beat — and His 99 Percent Clearance Rate

Much of retired homicide detective Rod Demery’s life has been shaped by death.

When he was 3, a pair of solemn-faced policemen showed up on his grandmother’s doorstep to tell them his mother had been murdered — stabbed nine times in the back by her husband. Then, when Demery was in his 20s, his brother was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.

But for more than 25 years, Demery worked at the police department in Shreveport, Louisiana, determined to break the cycle of violence that tore his family apart.  He will be featured in Murder Chose Me, a new series debuting on Investigation Discovery.

PEOPLE can exclusively premiere a clip from the reality show, which has a special premiere Sunday night.

For 14 of his years at Shreveport PD, Demerey cleared homicides. Before his retirement, he was called in for some

Inside a Teen Daughter’s Rebellion That Led to Cold-Blooded Murder

In the fall of 2004 Rachelle Waterman shared a family life that appeared anchored and happy — until murder shattered that facade.

Her dad, Carl “Doc” Waterman, was a a real estate agent and president of the school board in small-town Craig, Alaska. Her mom, Lauri, was a special education teacher’s aide who volunteered with her church and other civic groups. Rachelle, then 16, was a student-athlete who sang in the school choir, played volleyball and competed in an academic decathlon.

But as revealed in the next episode of People Magazine Investigates, airing Monday night on Investigation Discovery, beneath the surface of Rachelle’s life there was tension.

Lauri, 48, went missing in November 2004 and her remains were found in her minivan, which had been abandoned in the woods and set on fire. Investigators then began sifting through clues
