Episodic Information

Now, follow the hunt to bring these crooks to justice by police, prosecutors, and sometimes even ordinary concerned citizens.

This is a true crime series that reveals the untold details of the cat-and-mouse game between investigators and the craftiest criminals – and we hear it from the very people themselves.
