(New York, Ny.) – Investigation Discovery announced today its groundbreaking television series DISAPPEARED is being released as a podcast. During its nine seasons, DISAPPEARED told the stories of individuals who vanished seemingly without a trace. Some cases told over the course of the show’s run culminated in joyous reunions or heartbreaking discoveries, and ultimately, closure for the families – but that is sadly not the case for every story. Now, DISAPPEARED will start from the beginning of the series and present an audio version of the TV show featuring open investigations where families are still searching for answers. Three episodes of DISAPPEARED will be released on August 5th, with new episodes dropping weekly on Thursdays. Listen to DISAPPEARED on Apple, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. Fans of the TV series can watch episodes streaming now on discovery+.

Each episode of DISAPPEARED begins at the time immediately before the individual vanished, and chronicles the search for clues hidden beneath seemingly everyday behavior that may indicate what happened to the individual. The podcast serves as a new outlet to help bring these missing persons stories back to public attention, in the hopes that bringing their stories forward could result in fresh leads or new information to decipher the truth of what happened to the missing person.

Podcast trailer can be found here: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/disappeared/id1577613725

The Due-Process-Duo Return to Investigation Discovery for Season Four of “Reasonable Doubt”
Season four returns to Investigation Discovery with 10 gripping new episodes airing Mondays at 10:00/9:00c beginning July 12.
[via press release from Investigation Discovery]
THE DUE-PROCESS-DUO RETURN TO INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY FOR SEASON FOUR OF “REASONABLE DOUBT”
(New York, NY) – All too often, innocent people fall through the cracks of the justice system. These judicial missteps leave families devastated with doubt and paralyzed by unanswered questions about their convicted loved one. Determined to uncover the truth of these questionable convictions, retired homicide detective Chris Anderson and criminal defense attorney Fatima Silva return for a fourth season of REASONABLE DOUBT. With 10 all-new cases, Anderson and Silva use their resources, collective expertise, and objective investigative lens to re-examine controversial murder cases throughout the country to ensure that the right person is behind bars for the crime committed. After their thorough investigation, Anderson and Silva review the evidence with the family to either present the chance for an appeal, or confront them with the crushing truth that their loved one may have been rightfully convicted of murder. Appeal or acceptance? Either way, this due-process-duo finds the truth, with their revelations pushing families toward an emotional reckoning with reality. Season four of REASONABLE DOUBT returns to Investigation Discovery with 10 gripping new episodes airing Mondays at 10/9c beginning July 12. The complete fourth season will join the previous three seasons of the series and will be available for streaming on discovery+ beginning September 21.

“As a former homicide detective, finding justice for victims and their families is what drove me my entire career,” said co-host Chris Anderson. “The work we do on REASONABLE DOUBT is so important because it provides a completely independent look at cases to offer objective truth to ensure the right person is behind bars.”

“Everyone deserves the opportunity to defend themselves against criminal allegations,” said co-host Fatima Silva. “Arrests, court proceedings, convictions – all of these things can erroneously destroy an innocent person’s life and livelihood. With REASONABLE DOUBT, the accused finally have a chance to be heard and Lady Justice’s scales can be rebalanced.”

In the season four premiere of REASONABLE DOUBT Anderson and Silva are confronted with one of the most confounding murder cases of the series. When Justin Lunsford and Liz Herma crossed paths, they had a wild, but seemingly typical, night out for the pair of twenty-somethings. Lunsford claims the two went their separate ways the next morning, but the next day, Herma was found dead in her home, with her home and vehicle both set on fire. Lunsford was arrested for Herma’s murder after a witness places “a man” at the crime scene. Lunsford claims he felt pressured by the court to plead guilty to a 23-year sentence to avoid the death penalty, but maintains his innocence. In the premiere episode of REASONABLE DOUBT airing on Monday, July 12 at 10/9c, Lunsford’s brother and wife are relying on Anderson and Fatima’s independent investigation to find the hope that could put their broken family back together.

Additional investigations this season include: the case of Kara Garvin, a drug dealer convicted with a life sentence after her alleged co-conspirator turned her in for a triple homicide; David Thorne, whose family claims Thorne, with an air-tight alibi, was not responsible for masterminding his ex-wife’s murder; Glynn Simmons, who was convicted of a 1974 armed burglary from an eyewitness testimony, but insists he was in another state at the time; Steven Cheban who was convicted of killing his mother-in-law, and whose wife is desperate to know if she should continue to stand by her husband, or finally give up the fight; and more.

ABOUT CHRIS ANDERSON

Detective Sergeant Chris Anderson is a retired homicide detective for the City of Birmingham Police Dept., where during his 21-year tenure, he spent 17 years as an investigator.

He is currently working with the District Attorney’s Office as a cold case investigator, and also heads up Birmingham’s Conviction Integrity Unit. Chris grew up in Birmingham and credits his mother, also a retired Birmingham Police Sergeant, for his deep passion for police work and the compassion to pursue justice.

ABOUT FATIMA SILVA

Fatima Silva is a seasoned criminal defense attorney fighting for the accused in courtrooms across California’s San Francisco Bay Area. From a very young age, Ms. Silva wanted to be an attorney and advocate for individuals going through one of the most difficult periods in their life. She firmly believes defending the accused is necessary to protect rights guaranteed by our justice system. Ms. Silva’s knowledge, empathy, and diverse background make her a uniquely zealous advocate. Her passion for justice and unparalleled dedication to her clients led to her being selected to co-star in Reasonable Doubt, alongside Detective Chris Anderson.

INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY ANNOUNCES ARREST OF A CONVICTED MURDERER ON THE RUN THANKS TO TIP FROM THE “IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH” HOTLINE

— U.S. Marshals Arrested Maurice Nesbitt in Alabama This Morning, Marking the 25th Fugitive Featured on IN PURSUIT to be Captured —

(Silver Spring, Md.)—Today, the U.S. Marshals Service Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force announced the capture of Maurice Nesbitt, who has been on the run since 2017 after being found guilty for the murder of his estranged girlfriend, Rashawn Jackson. Nesbitt was out on bond when he cut off his ankle monitor and fled on the last day of the trial. He was profiled in season one of IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH in January 2019, and last Sunday was profiled on the show’s Facebook page to help drive additional awareness. A brave tipster contacted the IN PURSUIT hotline with specific information on where Nesbitt was hiding out in Alabama, and early this morning, the U.S. Marshals made the arrest.

Now filming its third season, IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH merges legendary victims advocate John Walsh with the #1 true crime channel, Investigation Discovery, on their joint mission to track down fugitives on the run and find missing children. The first two seasons are available to view at discovery+, the definitive nonfiction streaming service now available from Discovery Inc.

“Thanks to a direct tip from a brave tipster into the IN PURSUIT hotline and our great partners at the U.S. Marshals, a convicted murderer is now off the streets,” said host and executive producer, John Walsh. “When I make a promise to you that we’re listening, I mean it. Our lines are always open, and I promise, you can always remain anonymous. So, don’t hesitate. If you know something – or think you know something – make that call.”

In each episode of IN PURSUIT, John Walsh leads viewers through unsolved violent crimes that urgently need to be closed – where time is of the essence and vigilant viewers could bring these criminals to justice. Joining John in every episode is his son, Callahan Walsh, who leads the operation on the ground, working in tandem with the community and local authorities to search for persons-of-interest. In partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), the series also features two missing children each hour, providing age-progression photos and descriptions in the hopes that viewers can provide new leads to their whereabouts.

Investigation Discovery taps into its uniquely engaged audience to help track down these persons of interest and find missing children. The show utilizes an always active call center at 1-833-3-PURSUE and dedicated online hub at InPursuitTips.com, both staffed by trained English and Spanish-speaking operators who accept anonymous tips and alert the proper authorities. To engage with the show, viewers are encouraged to connect using the hashtag #TeamInPursuit, join the IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH Facebook page at Facebook.com/InPursuitwithJohnWalsh, and connect on Instagram @InvestigationDiscovery or Twitter @DiscoveryID.

IN PURSUIT WITH JOHN WALSH is produced for Investigation Discovery by Jupiter Entertainment. For Jupiter, Harrison Land, Stephen Land, and Gregory Palmer are executive producers. For ID, Lorna Thomas is senior executive producer.
