Not sure of why ID has added the sub-heading, but it's an excellent no-nonsense suspenseful retelling of murder. This is just my problem, but I've seen so many reality crime stories that it's hard to not already know the case. I do wish there were more less known murders on this show, even if they had to find some from other countries. This was one of the best reality crime shows on television. *Must add this, this season is just not as good as previous seasons, these are VERY rehashed murders. I'm a coupla' minutes in to each and every one and I know the whole incident. Darnnit, was my #1 Investigation Discovery show, not anymore.
Excellent!! Narration was fantastic with commentator speaking with passion and authority, not explaining what could happen, or what might have been, or desires or any other hypothetical feelings. Just like Bill Curtis and Paul Winfield, easy listening, pausing at the correct times, reflecting at the right time, just keeping it real.
