(Silver Spring, Md.) - Emmy Award-winning journalist Paula Zahn returns to America's leading true-crime network Investigation Discovery (ID) for an all-new season of the channel's first original series, ON THE CASE WITH PAULA ZAHN. Premiering Sunday, October 29 at 10/9c, ON THE CASE takes viewers on an emotional journey into some of the nation's most captivating crimes. Driven by Zahn's unparalleled journalistic expertise and passion for justice, each episode of ON THE CASE profiles fascinating and true investigations that shocked communities across America. Anchored by insightful and emotional interviews with criminal experts and those closest to the victims, Zahn delves into every twist and turn of each case in her quest for the truth.
The season premiere of ON THE CASE follows the tragic double homicide of Reeda Roundy and Betty Gray who were found in Roundy's home, along with a satanic message written in blood. It said "Satan Loves You," and appeared to have been part of a carefully planned ritual. Detectives were puzzled, as neither murder had any signs of being ritualistic and both victims appeared to have died without a struggle. But as the investigation unfolded, detectives learned that nothing about the crime was as it appeared. In fact, it would take remarkable police work and insights from the families of both beloved mothers to finally piece together the stunning truth.

When investigators arrived it was clear that the woman had been the victim of a homicide. 41-year-old Nancy Menke had been handcuffed and shot to death at point blank range. The mother of four lived just a few miles away. As investigators retraced Nancy's final hours alive they developed a solid theory of the crime, but no suspects.
