Plot Synopsis

THE MURDER TAPES is a one-hour crime docuseries that uses every conceivable form of taped footage involved in a homicide case, sharing up-close perspectives from those at the scene and showing the aftermath of a murder in in a raw and unfiltered form. Viewers see and hear it all -- from the initial crime scene investigations via body cam, to home security tapes, to the interrogation room footage that reveals heart-pounding confessionals. The tapes capture the reactions from loved ones and families in real time, record investigators' first impressions of the scene, and show exactly how theories begin to arise. Evidence accumulates and emotions surge, but the tapes keep rolling. Investigators know it takes time to find all the footage they need, but the revelations are worth the effort. Throughout the series, real tapes are woven in with present-day interviews from friends, family and law enforcement directly involved in the case. Viewers see the case at its beginning and follow it to the end. Episodes include:

Investigators are left to figure out the motive behind his killing, working through a list of possible suspects, which include Don's family, landlord, and his ex-wife's new husband.
