People Magazine Investigates: Who Killed Popular Florida State Law Professor Dan Markel?

Just hours after popular Florida State University criminal-law professor Dan Markel dropped his two young sons off at daycare on July 18, 2014, he was shot in the head at point-blank range in the garage of his suburban Tallahassee home.

Markel, 41, died the next day — and police quickly surmised he’d been targeted.

But why? And by whom?

More than three years later, the open case is the focus of Monday night’s episode of People Magazine Investigates on Investigation Discovery. The episode zeroes in on the police questioning of Markel’s ex-wife, fellow law

Killing Fields: Season Three of Discovery Series Investigates Chilling Virginia Homicide

“Across America, there are isolated places that appear untouched. In these desolate and sprawling areas – known as killing fields – dozens of deaths remain mysteries, baffling anyone daring enough to investigate. On Thursday, January 4 at 9 PM ET/PT, Discovery will head to Isle of Wight County, Virginia to investigate a brutal cold case in the third season of the network’s hit true-crime series KILLING FIELDS.

KILLING FIELDS is co-executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Tom Fontana (“St. Elsewhere,” “Homicide: Life On The Street,” “Oz” and “The Philanthropist”) and Academy Award-winning film director Barry Levinson (“Rain Man,” “Diner,” “Bugsy,” “Wag the Dog” and “Good Morning, Vietnam”).

Isle of Wight is an isolated farmland community in Virginia – miles from nearly everything and everyone. But the quiet community was marked by a gruesome homicide its residents cannot forget. In the summer of 2004, 28-year-old Carrie Singer was found beaten to death and

Petit Family Murders Featured on People Magazine Investigates …

By all accounts, the Petits of Cheshire, Connecticut, were the model of the perfect family: An accomplished doctor and a pediatric nurse, well-liked in the community, raising two bright daughters — the elder one, 17, preparing to follow her father to Dartmouth, and the younger one, 11, already discovering a passion for cooking.

But that sweet tableau was shattered on July 23, 2007, when Jennifer Hawke-Petit and kids Hayley and Michaela were murdered in cold blood by two men who broke into the family home in the middle of the night and held them hostage for hours.

Only the father, Dr. William Petit Jr., survived, having been beaten and locked in the basement, emerging as the police arrived to find his house in flames and his family gone.

What began with a chance encounter ended with a horrifying tale of extortion, sexual assault and murder that shook a sleepy suburb

People Magazine Investigates: What Happened to 2-Year-Old DeOrr Kunz, Who Vanished in Idaho Woods?

The campout in a remote patch of the Idaho mountains promised a fun time for 2-year-old DeOrr Kunz, who went on vacation with his parents, grandfather and his grandfather’s friend.

With the assurance that “Grandpa Bob” Walton would keep an eye on him, DeOrr’s mom, Jessica Mitchell, and father, who is also named DeOrr Kunz but also goes by Vernal, walked off from the campsite to go fishing on July 10, 2015 — but when the boy’s dad returned, the son they lovingly called “Little Man” was nowhere to be found.

More than two years later, the enduring mystery of what happened to the still-lost little boy is the focus of tonight’s episode of People Magazine Investigates, which airs at 10 p.m. ET on Investigation Discovery.

After DeOrr’s parents called 911, law enforcement believed the boy had wandered into the woods surrounding the Timber
