ID Announces October Specials
This October Investigation Discovery, the leading true crime and justice network, debuts a robust slate of true-crime programming including a number of new specials, series and seasons of returning fan favorites. Over the course of the next month, ID will be the premiere destination for must-watch true crime.
ID kicks off with the heartbreaking one-hour special THE MURDER OF GABBY PETITO: WHAT REALLY HAPPENED which premieres Wednesday, October 12 at 10/9c. In 2021, aspiring influencer Gabby Petito sets out on a cross-country road trip with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie. After documenting their travels on social media, she suddenly disappears, and the ensuing mystery goes viral. Now, never-before-aired footage of the couple offers insight into their relationship days before she vanishes and the nightmarish outcome calls the police and public treatment of domestic violence situations into question.
Programming over the course of October also includes new series debut of NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM, which features survivors and investigators recounting true stories of horrifying crimes in the most isolated corners of the country, as well as the THE FREEWAY KILLER: LOST MURDER TAPES, a new special which features chilling confession tapes that decades later may provide crucial insight into a tragic string of killings along California’s freeways. Additionally, this October will include the return of new seasons of classic, fan favorite ID series including BODY CAM, THE MURDER TAPES, and AMERICAN MONSTER.
