“We are thrilled to be partnering with the talented PEOPLE team once again to welcome a new season of People Magazine Investigates, a series that has consistently ranked among ID’s top titles since its debut in 2016,” said Jason Sarlanis, President of Crime and Investigative Content, Linear and Streaming. “This valuable collaboration allows us to showcase compelling stories from across the nation through the unique lens of PEOPLE’s renowned journalists to present true crime in a way that no other network can provide.”

The two-hour sixth season premiere episode of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES uncovers the horrific triple murder and double kidnapping of the Groene family that rattles an idyllic lake front community in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. Investigators arrive at the Wolf Lodge residence, where mother Brenda Groene, her boyfriend Mark McKenzie and son Slade Groene are discovered bound and bludgeoned within the home – her youngest children, Shasta and Dylan Groene, missing from the scene. When investigators confirm that the missing Groene children are not with other family members, Amber Alerts are issued and a massive search effort fueled by volunteers and law enforcement sets off to find Shasta and Dylan, dead or alive. Across two mind bending hours, viewers will get a first-hand look as investigators uncover every horrifying detail of Shasta’s harrowing escape and rescue and her tireless fight to stay alive.
