This week’s episode of Obsession: Dark Desires on Investigation Discovery tells the story of Olympic gold-medalist Sheila Taormina and her ordeal at the hands of stalker James Conyers.

In 2002 she was contacted by apparant wannabe triathlete Conyers who said he wanted lessons so he could improve at the sport.

Discovery’s ‘Killing Fields’ is your next true crime obsession

What do you get when you mix the aesthetic of True Detective with the storytelling of Serial? That would be Killing Fields, Discovery Channel’s first true crime drama series, which returns for Season 2 on Jan. 3.

The second season — shot in real time — continues to track the investigation into the 1997 cold case of Louisiana State University student Eugenie Boisfontaine, whose body was discovered in a bayou and whose murder has remained unsolved for years. 

Leading the charge is Detective Rodie Sanchez, the first investigator assigned to Boisfontaine’s case back in ’97, who came out of retirement to try and solve the mystery which has haunted him for the past two decades. 

In Season 2, the team is also tracking another case after evidence surfaces of a body stuffed inside a barrel. Sanchez believes that this is tied to an unsolved disappearance he worked 26 years ago.

The Grisly Obsession Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian, and More Celebrities Share

Gigi Hadid’s original motive for moving to New York was slightly darker than to become the pre-eminent model of the moment: she arrived ready to pursue a degree in criminal psychology at the New School. Luckily for the many brands she now represents, Hadid put her studies on hiatus, and her stint analyzing the minds of criminals is now merely an anecdote that ripples through profiles and interviews several years later, buoyed by her love for chatting about crime shows. See Live with Kelly and Michael or this AdWeek cover story from 2015 or a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Secrets Revealed clip. “[O]ne day I hope I can use my studies to be on Law Order: S.V.U.,” Hadid told Harper’s Bazaar just this September.
