Let's support #InjusticeFiles on @DiscoveryID tonight


I think I've been fairly obvious with my love of good in-depth true crime documentaries. I was a huge fan of the old CourtTV before it became "Tru" :-/. So when I stumbled across the Investigation Discovery Channel, I admit to feeling like I found a new home. A few of my favorite shows are Stalked, Who the Bleep Did I Marry and I (Almost) Got Away With It. Tonight, a new show about Civil Rights era FBI cold cases launches hosted by acclaimed black documentary maker Keith Beauchamp. Here's a sneak peak at tonight's episode.

THE INJUSTICE FILES on Investigation Discovery
Premieres Tonight, Feb 18 at 9pm E/P

Premiere episode: The Secrets of Natchez
The murder of Wharlest Jackson launched one of the biggest FBI civil rights investigations. Forty-three later the case remains unsolved. With help from filmmaker Keith Beauchamp, the FBI close in by confronting a man who may have the answers.

Keith Beauchamp was on the Bob Edwards Show this morning talking about this show, and it was a very interesting discussion. I will be tuning in.

I'll put this on my DVR ... I like true crime documentaries as well. Stalked sounds like Snapped on Oxygen -- one of my favorite. I'm still trying to find the name of the Black lady from ATL that beat her playa BF with one of his own tools ... that was the story that got me hooked on Snapped years ago. I'm not going to comment on "Tru" and don't get me started on "SyFy"

That was excellent. Thanks for connecting the dots.

Snob, I am a true ID fan. It is the only thing I watch with any regularlity on the TV. Who the Bleep Did I Marry is favorite of mine, especially the episodes that featured the DC Sniper's wife and the wife of the Green River killer. I'm definitely going to check out Injustice Files when it repeats.

The one with the Green River Killer's wife just slayed me - she wasn't the least bit curious to know where he was going at 3:00 in the morning? All those mornings? Bless her heart.

Well, from what I remembered the GRK's wife said his leaving at 3 am was always noted as overtime or work. I can see why she believed him because she said he always left at 3 am and came back in the evening at 7pm. He stuck to a regular schedule and always left out her vitamins before he left, she didn't suspect anything. His regularity was what kept her from being suspicious.

What killed me about her GRK wife was that she divorced her first husband in 1972 after he revealed he was bi-sexual. And then, she thought she lucked out with the Green River guy. All I could think was "Man, that woman don't have no luck with men." The DC Sniper's wife was sad; he basically killed all those people to cover up her eventual murder.
