Plot Synopsis

In every group of friends, family circle, church congregation, and community organization, tight bonds are founded on trust. But in the blink of an eye, the world that seemed so safe can become completely unrecognizable. BROKEN TRUST is a one-hour docuseries that tells bone-chilling, true-life tales of people who turn trust into betrayal with deadly consequences. The series relies on firsthand accounts from a group of "insiders" whose world is altered by the arrival of someone from outside their family or social circle -- the kind of person who is instantly trusted and turns that trust into access to homes, to secrets, to bank accounts. As the outsider infiltrates the insiders' world, tensions escalate and a swelling wave of doubt is triggered. Trust evaporates, paranoia and suspicion set in, and everything changes. Suddenly, the once-safe world is rocked by a cold-blooded murder. In the wake of the killing, the husband, the best friend, the business partner, the stockbroker, the neighbor and the mistress are left vulnerable -- each one looking over their shoulder, living in fear of the killer, or the truth, or being caught in a lie. Each suspect's facade disintegrates as the investigation unfolds and secrets are laid bare And the dogged investigator leading the pursuit of justice comes to a horrific realization: the victim was killed by someone they trusted. In the series opener, "The Landlord," Karen Jenkins' building is in a rough area, but she's determined to help the neighborhood and all of her tenants along with it. The problem is that each of them seems to have something to hide. And one of them will do anything to keep those secrets safe.
On Wednesday, August 22, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT, Investigation Discover premiered "Collateral Damage," the season finale of BROKEN TRUST. In the season ender, when the pillar of a remote Utah community is approached by an old acquaintance with a plan to make money, an exciting partnership is formed. But as their venture falls apart, access to a valuable cache of weapons, becomes a motive for betrayal.
