Using re-creations, archival footage, and first-person interviews, THE KILLER BESIDE ME is a one-hour docuseries that chronicles real-life murder cases within the work place. Each 60-minute episode highlights a different case, including: Bob Peterson, who invited himself to the home of his co-workers, Gene and Jaye-Jaye Thurnau, to give them a housewarming present, but when Jaye-Jaye returned after running an errand, Bob and Gene have vanished; 24-year-old Caroline Nosal befriended an introvert work colleague, Christopher O'Kroley, but she complained to management at the grocery store when things didn't work out planned; a cleaning lady, Myra, headed into the property office and discovered it has been ransacked -- only to find blood everywhere around the body of property manager Melinda Shaefer. Investigation Discovery released "Living a Lie," an online early premiere episode of this series on Friday, April 6, 2018 -- two weeks before the official series premiere on Saturday, April 21 at 10pm ET/PT.
