Plot Synopsis

Featuring first-person testimonials from key players involved in the cases and in-depth interviews with faculty, family and friends of the victim, MURDER U is a one-hour series that explores the terrifying tales of murder and mayhem that have struck college campuses across America. Each 60-minute episode unravels a gripping story of a promising relationship that ended in a deadly betrayal. From a tale of young romance gone wrong to troubles on a college debate team, this series recounts campus crimes committed by the most unsuspecting culprits. Stories include: a quiet group of friends hanging out at a student's nearby house, but the night quickly turned into a midnight murder when shots rang out, unknowingly striking one of the students; a murder that shakes the core of the campus of Samford University, which trains the leaders of the future at a college known for its rigorous work ethic and safe community; murder arrives at the Gallaudet University campus, where many fear the prestigious school for the deaf in Washington D.C. is suddenly the stalking ground for a ruthless killer; tensions erupt one fateful night at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD, and a vengeful act leave lives shattered by a raging fire and tragic murder; groups of young college women navigate through their newfound college experience together, paying little attention to the recent crimes that percolate within the small-town campus of Eastern Illinois University; and love and delusion clash for a young couple at the University of Florida, leaving police to decipher a sudden and mysterious death.
On Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, Investigation Discovery premiered the Season 1 finale of MURDER U. In the season ender, "Devil in the Details," a promising young life on campus is cut short. The mysterious and unexpected murder leads police around campus and around the globe. The manhunt unearths a shocking tale of love, betrayal and cowardly deception.
