Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by ABC News senior legal correspondent Sunny Hostin, TRUTH ABOUT MURDER WITH SUNNY HOSTIN is a one-hour docuseries that follows Hostin as she travels to the sites of America's most perplexing cases, interviewing detectives, prosecutors, coroners, and speaking with victims' families to piece together the emotions, evidence and, ultimately, truth of the case. As a former undefeated federal prosecutor -- and current victims' rights advocate -- she uses her expertise to connect with investigators and law enforcement and get to the heart of what exactly happened.

"Every day I have the privilege of connecting with people from across the country, listening to their stories of triumph and tragedy," said Sunny Hostin. "In this series, Investigation Discovery has given me a tremendous opportunity to tell the real story of these crimes that have affected the communities that we live in and talk to those most impacted by these cases. I know TRUTH ABOUT MURDER will heal the wounds of those who remain and provide a voice to those who can no longer speak for themselves."

From a small town in Michigan to going deep in the Bayou, Hostin travels the country on a quest to re-examine homicides that have rocked communities and wounded loved ones. She delves into a case from Santa Ana, CA, where a husband returned home to find his newly pregnant wife murdered with no clues in sight. Later she goes to Portland, TX, where two best friends disappeared, victims of a kidnapping by a perpetrator with a motive no one could ever anticipate. Hostin also ventures to the small town of Galien Township, MI, speaking with residents who were thrown into turmoil when a young mother was found murdered in her own home. And in Powder Springs, GA, Hostin works to unravel the web of inconsistencies and lies that led to a woman being shot execution-style in her kitchen. With a deep understanding of the multi-tiered effort involved in bringing a perpetrator to court and finding much-needed closure for a family, Hostin empathizes with the victims' loved ones, all while highlighting the hardworking law enforcement, detectives and attorneys who helped bring the culprits to justice.
On Tuesday, November 26, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT, Investigation Discovery premiered "Murder at the Window," the season finale of TRUTH ABOUT MURDER WITH SUNNY HOSTIN. A new job in a new town seems like a promising start for expectant parents Kent and Malinda Gibbons. But life quickly turns into a nightmare when Kent finds Malinda raped and murdered at home. Detectives find themselves in a race to stop a killer.
