About John Walsh

John Walsh is known internationally as a crime fighter, victims’ advocate and Emmy Award-winning host of “America’s Most Wanted,” the reality program that helped law enforcement capture more than 1,400 fugitives and brought home more than 50 missing children. He never sought the role, but fighting for justice has been his mission since July 27, 1981 the day his 6-year-old son, Adam, was abducted from a Hollywood, Florida, mall near his home. Adam’s remains were found two weeks later. Through their experience, Walsh and his wife Revé realized that the nation desperately needed leadership in the fight to protect children. Out of their pain, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children was created in 1984, after President Ronald Reagan signed the “Missing Children’s Assistance Act.” Walsh has been honored numerous times by many local, state and federal agencies. In addition to being named “Man of the Year” by both the U.S. Marshals Service and the FBI, John was made an honorary U.S. Marshal. He is only one of three people to receive this honor in the organization’s history. Walsh has been the driving force behind major pieces of child protection legislation. This work led to him being honored five times by four presidents. The Walshs had three more children after Adam, and John continues to fight for victims’ rights.

About Callahan Walsh

Callahan Walsh is a child advocate for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). At the National Center, Callahan works together with law enforcement, including USMS, to further NCMEC’s mission and to help change laws in favor of child victims. He is the son of John and Revé Walsh, who co-founded NCMEC in 1984 after the kidnapping and murder of their first son, Adam Walsh. Callahan can regularly be seen on various media outlets such as Good Morning America, ABC, CNN, and HLN promoting NCMEC’s programs. Prior to joining NCMEC, Callahan served as the Supervising Producer for America’s Most Wanted and helped co-create The Hunt with John Walsh. Following in his parent’s footsteps, Callahan has focused his energy on helping find missing children, reducing child sexual exploitation, and preventing child victimization.

About the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC)

Since 1984, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children(R) has served as the leading private, nonprofit organization helping to find missing children, reduce child sexual exploitation and prevent future victimization. As part of its work as the clearinghouse and resource center on issues relating to missing and exploited children, NCMEC operates a hotline, 1-800-THE-LOST(R) (1-800-843-5678), and has assisted in the recovery of more than 389,000 missing children. NCMEC also operates the CyberTipline(R), a mechanism for reporting suspected child sexual exploitation, which has received more than 126 million reports.

-THE DIANA INVESTIGATIONS available to stream August 18 exclusively on discovery+ –

(New York, NY) – This August, a series of thought-provoking blockbuster specials will revisit some of the most preeminent murder cases of the ’90s. Over the course of the month, ID will feature: a three-part deep dive into the unsolved deaths of hip-hop’s most famous feuding icons in WHO KILLED BIGGIE AND TUPAC?; a look into the controversial trial of notorious British au-pair Louise Woodward in THE KILLER NANNY; a portrait of the illicit student-teacher relationship that gripped news stations across the country in MARY KAY LETOURNEAU: NOTES ON A SCANDAL; and a re-examination through a new lens of the Erik and Lyle Menedez trial in the previously announced MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED?. ID will also present a slate of high-profile cases re-visited with PEOPLE MAGAZINE PRESENTS: CRIMES OF THE 90S. And then, coming to discovery+ this August, ID will take an in-depth look into the relentless media firestorm and police inquiry into the tragic death of Princess Diana of Wales with THE DIANA INVESTIGATIONS (all programming details below).

“The 1990s were a decade where true crime dominated popular culture in an unprecedented way. From the tragic loss of icons like Biggie, Tupac and Princess Di to the scandalous affair of Mary Kay Letourneau and the horrific circumstances of the Menendez Brothers, these stories and their headlines captivated the public,” said Jason Sarlanis, President of Crime and Investigative Content, Linear and Streaming. “With never-before-seen evidence and groundbreaking interviews, we reexamine these crimes through the context of our present day, giving our viewers jaw-dropping revelations and a completely new understanding of these iconic cases they thought they knew.”

ID and discovery+’s lineup of gripping specials will take you inside the shocking crimes of the 90s where decades later, the public still grapples with lingering questions around these tragedies: what did we get right?, what did we get wrong?, what is left unanswered? From new insight into the murders of Biggie and Tupac, revelations from Mary Kay Letourneau’s past, an alternative peek behind the scenes of the some of the biggest trials of the decade including the Menendez Brothers and Louise Woodward and fascinating interviews with those on the ground in Paris who investigated the late Princess Diana’s death, which showcase a rare glimpse into the tragic accident and the many alleged conspiracies. Exclusive access will provide a whole new perspective. Only on ID and discovery+.

MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED?

Premieres August 7 @ 9/8c on ID & Available to Stream the Same Day on discovery+

Thirty years ago, the nation watched every moment of the Menendez Brothers’ dramatic trial in real time on Court TV. Now, thanks to TikTok and social media, an entirely new generation is learning their story for the very first time. Details of the murder were seared into our collective memory: the 911 call, the crime scene photos, the Rolexes. The media narrative – that two Beverly Hill boys killed their parents out of greed and allegedly concocted a fantastic account to get out of it – remains a national punchline. But now, three decades later, as Gen Z discovers the case, they see the story of two boys who suffered horrific abuse at the hands of their mother, father… and the media. Did we get it all wrong?

WHO KILLED BIGGIE AND TUPAC?

Premieres August 14 @ 9/8c on ID & Available to Stream the Same Day on discovery+

25 years of contempt, controversy, and conspiracy all lead to the same single question: who killed Biggie and Tupac? Now, with exclusive interviews and unique insight into both shootings, this series offers up answers from the key players involved. Who do you believe is telling the truth?

THE KILLER NANNY

Premieres August 21 @ 9/8c on ID & Available to Stream the Same Day on discovery+

The murder trial of British au pair Louise Woodward was televised live in the UK transfixing viewers and splitting public opinion about whether she was guilty or innocent. Twenty-five years later evidence is reexamined with unprecedented access to witnesses, the defense team, the prosecution, and members of the jury who decided her fate.

MARY KAY LETOURNEAU: NOTES ON A SCANDAL

Premieres August 28 @ 9/8c on ID & Available to Stream the Same Day on discovery+

With all the ingredients of a Hollywood movie, this sex scandal shocked, enthralled, and enraged 1990s America. 34-year-old elementary school teacher, Mary Kay Letourneau, who was married with 4 kids, began an affair in 1997 with her 12-year-old student, Vili Fualauu. They not only didn’t deny the outrageous behavior, but they would also eventually embrace the love affair that included French-kissing on school grounds, trysts in her van, and even sexual rendezvous in her family home. The question on everyone’s mind was: Is this true love, or is Mary Kay Letourneau a pedophile, guilty of child rape?

THE DIANA INVESTIGATIONS

Available to Stream August 18 Exclusively on discovery+

Twenty-five years ago, a fatal car accident took the life of the beloved Princess Diana of Wales, devastating the world. In the decades following her death, conspiracy theories and accusations have swirled – who was to blame? How did this happen? Over the course of four gripping parts, THE DIANA INVESTIGATIONS offers a new look into the tragedy that has shocked the world for decades. For the first time, hear exclusively from the key figures who investigated the beloved Princess’ death as they provide new insight and reveal never-before-heard details.

PEOPLE MAGAZINE PRESENTS: CRIMES OF THE 90S

ID PRESENTS THREE THEATRICAL-LENGTH “HOMICIDE HUNTER” SPECIALS STARRING LT. JOE KENDA

– HOMICIDE HUNTER: NEVER GIVE UP Premieres on ID on August 17 from 9-11PM ET/PT and is Available to Stream Same Day on discovery+ –

(New York, NY) – During HOMICIDE HUNTER’s nine seasons on ID, Lt. Joe Kenda captivated viewers with stories from the hundreds of murder cases he solved throughout his 23-year-long career. Now, Lt. Kenda returns to ID to put to rest more cases that kept him up at night with three theatrical-length HOMICIDE HUNTER specials, revealing chilling new details of career-defining cases. With his gruff voice and no-nonsense demeanor, Kenda leads viewers through labyrinthine cases that have plagued him for years, with the first two-hour special focused on the investigation of a female soldier whose killer was a shadow in the night for decades. HOMICIDE HUNTER: NEVER GIVE UP premieres on ID on Wednesday, August 17 from 9-11PM ET/PT, debuting on the heels of an all-new season of AMERICAN DETECTIVE WITH LT. JOE KENDA, which airs on Wednesdays at 10PM ET/PT on ID. Both are available to stream the same day on discovery+.

“Since I joined the network, we at ID have wanted to bring the HOMICIDE HUNTER brand back to our air. Unfortunately, we had told all the stories we could possibly tell from Kenda’s incredible history of cases… until now. Thanks to advances in science, Joe has finally been able to close cases that have remained unsolved for decades,” said Jason Sarlanis, President of Crime and Investigative Content, Linear and Streaming. “We are delighted to deliver our fans a dynamic and cinematic approach to their beloved HOMICIDE HUNTER with a trilogy of premium, feature-length specials. An event literally thirty years in the making.”

In HOMICIDE HUNTER: NEVER GIVE UP, the body of a 20-year-old active-duty soldier, Darlene Krashoc, is found dumped behind a restaurant in Colorado in March 1987. A victim of torture and sexual assault, Lt. Joe Kenda and his team recall the series of events that occurred throughout the investigation and the many leads which turned into dead ends. But before the case goes cold, Kenda has the foresight to meticulously package and preserve every piece of fluid evidence found at the crime scene, a costly and complicated endeavor at the time, noting, “it may never come to anything, but it could come to everything.” More than three decades later and the advent of new DNA technology, what it came to is definitively putting a name to Darlene’s killer: Michael David Whyte.

In this feature-length HOMICIDE HUNTER special, viewers follow along as Kenda and his team painstakingly recount the investigation from 1987 and the 2,000 pages of case files that never pointed them toward Whyte. Now, with DNA evidence collected at the scene more than three decades ago and with help from the cold case team at the Colorado Springs Police Department, the shadow in the night has a name, Darlene’s parents have justice, and Kenda has one less nightmare.

Details on the remaining two HOMICIDE HUNTER specials will be released at a later date.

Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #HomicideHunter.

In AMERICAN DETECTIVE, Kenda trades in his own case files to bring viewers astounding investigations from across the country. Tipping his cap to the other great men and women who answered the call, each episode profiles a different homicide detective whose tireless efforts helped bring justice to the victim. Joe Kenda guides us through the nuances of each case and the dogged detective work it took to solve the seemingly unsolvable. New episodes of AMERICAN DETECTIVE WITH LT. JOE KENDA premiere on Wednesdays at 10PM ET/PT on ID and are available to stream the same day on discovery+.

HOMICIDE HUNTER: NEVER GIVE UP and AMERICAN DETECTIVE WITH LT. JOE KENDA are both produced by Jupiter Entertainment for Investigation Discovery.

WORLD PREMIERE OF ID’s EXCLUSIVE “MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED?” DOCUMENTARY OFFERS A NEW PERSPECTIVE & FASCINATING LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE IN SHOCKING 1990 CASE

-Two Hour Special Premieres August 7 at 9/8c on ID & Available to Stream the Same Day on discovery+-

(New York, NY) – This August, ID will transport viewers back to the 1990s and the trial that gripped news stations across the country: Erik and Lyle Menendez’s brutal double murder of their parents. What seemingly began as a case of two privileged boys who were motivated to murder by greed quickly developed into something much more shocking: the Menendez brothers testified to a lifetime of sexual, physical and emotional abuse at the hands of the parents they killed. While the brothers continue to serve their life sentences behind bars, their case has transfixed a new generation of savvy media consumers, who harnessed the story on TikTok. MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED? revisits the case that still, decades later, baffles and captivates the public, offering an exclusive interview with Lyle Menendez and a fascinating look at the evidence, trial, the media and the public’s reaction both then and now. The two-hour documentary special will premiere August 7 at 9/8c on ID and streaming the same day on discovery+. The premiere of MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED? will kick off ID’s month-long nostalgic dive into some of the most shocking cases of the 1990s, with specials airing every Sunday in August at 9/8c on ID.

While the Menendez Brothers case never truly left the public consciousness, over the past year their 1990 trial has captivated TikTok, with posts about the brothers garnering close to one billion views. As popular culture begins to reflect on how the previous generations may have treated public figures and sensitive topics like sexual abuse and trauma, the Menendez brothers’ trial and evisceration by the media – and the public – is coming back into focus.

With the incredible reach of social media platforms, Gen Z influencers are uncovering new evidence and pushing for a second-look at the trial and how the brothers were sentenced. Featuring new insight around the case combined with gripping interviews with the Menendez brothers’ post-conviction attorney, media, legal experts, investigators and the TikTokers who brought the case back into the spotlight, MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED? presents a comprehensive look at a crime that still perplexes and divides the public.

“The TikTok fascination with the Menendez Brothers is not only a fascinating example of how certain cases never really leave our public consciousness, but also an interesting look at the way different generations grapple with conversations around abuse, masculinity, and violence,” said Jason Sarlanis, President of Crime and Investigative Content, Linear and Streaming. “At a time when popular culture is having fresh conversations around how we as a public approach difficult topics, MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED? reconsiders this trial and the way it played out in the media. Only on ID will you hear from Lyle Menendez himself, and maybe see a different perspective that was missed in the original news coverage. This thought-provoking film is a powerful way to kick off our nostalgic month-long look back at the cases of the 1990s that shocked us then and still impact our culture today.”

MENENDEZ BROTHERS: MISJUDGED? Is produced for ID by Lion Television US.

ID’s line up of gripping nostalgic, nineties focused specials will also include a three-part investigation into the death of two hip hop icons in WHO KILLED BIGGIE AND TUPAC?, a look at the controversial trial of British au-pair Louise Woodward in THE KILLER NANNY, and MARY KAY LETOURNEAU: NOTES ON A SCANDAL, a portrait of the illicit student-teacher relationship that gripped news stations across the country.
