Dive into a world of mystery
Who Killed the Lyons Sisters?
In 1975, every parent’s worst nightmare came true when Sheila and Katherine Lyon left home to visit the local mall, less than a kilometre away. However, they never came home, and the entire Wheaton community in Maryland never recovered from the ordeal. The case remained unsolved until 2013, when it was reopened. This documentary reveals the truth behind their disappearance and even features the recorded confession, but from who?
Find out on Sunday, 13 December at 21:00 CAT on Investigation Discovery, DStv Channel 171.
The Murder Tapes
This series takes a look at murder investigations using footage from the actual cases to help tell the story. This includes clips from the interrogation room, body cam footage, and even home security tapes. If that doesn’t intrigue you, then maybe the fact that you’ll be following the investigation from start to finish will. Each episode will cover a different murder, so you’re sure to stay intrigued throughout the season.
Follow the investigation from Thursday 31 December at 21:50 CAT on Investigation Discovery, DStv Channel 171.
Cruise Ship Killers
As if the Titanic wasn’t enough to give you an unrealistic fear of cruise ships, we now need to worry about killers as well. This series follows the luxurious holidays people invested in but never came back from. Family, friends, and investigators share their insights into the disappearances, with each episode focusing a different case.
Keep up with the water-based terror weeknights at 19:15 CAT on Lifetime, DStv Channel 131.
