In partnership with PEOPLE and Radley Studios, PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES brings viewers directly into the heart of America’s most intriguing, baffling, and mysterious cases. Anchored by reporting from PEOPLE’s award-winning true crime editorial team, each hour-long episode takes a deep dive into a case through exclusive interviews, archival footage, and emotional first-hand accounts by family members, law enforcement, and those closest to the crime. Featuring 12 all-new episodes, the new season of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES premieres Monday, March 22 at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery. Episodes will also stream weekly on Mondays on discovery+.
“We are proud to continue our long-running collaboration with the exceptional PEOPLE team to bring back one of the network’s most successful and beloved series,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery. “These are stories you cannot find elsewhere, reported by some of the most diligent true crime reporters in the country and found only on ID and discovery+.”

The premiere episode of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES delves into the mysterious disappearance of college student Tammy Zywicki. In 1992, Tammy vanishes after her car breaks down on the highway. Family and friends scramble to find her, and have a semblance of hope when multiple witness accounts of Tammy on the side of the highway flood in. But those hopes are dashed when investigators discover the sinister truth. Police struggle with dead-end leads and suspects who don’t pan out, but the case is revitalized when DNA technology and new evidence sheds light on what happened decades later.
