Tara Calico was a smart, accomplished and athletic college freshman who biked into the New Mexico desert one morning in 1988 and never came back.

S2 Ep22: This Is The Zodiac Speaking

In the late 1960s, the Zodiac Killer terrorized Northern California not necessarily via his body count ?only five confirmed victims over the course of a year? but through his ability to manipulate fear into notoriety. Letters to newspapers, codes to crack and mysterious phone calls to police baited many into tormenting themselves with the question: who is the Zodiac? In this episode, we?ll go over the killer?s string of crimes and one particular suspect with a lot of suspicion still surrounding him.

S2 Ep18: Without a Trace: The Disappearance of Lori Ceci Bova

In the early hours of a June morning in 1997, 26-year-old Lori Ceci Bova stepped outside for a smoke break and never came back. She forgot her cigarettes, for one, and as the search for Lori unfolded more questions than answers emerged. Loved ones, police and bystanders took turns being cagey, and the abundance of psychic input on the case led everyone astray. When someone disappears truly without a trace ?not a clue, suspect or body identified? how can the truth unearth itself?

The trial of teenage murderer Alice Mitchell was an all out spectacle. After killing her former lover Freda Ward in a crime of passion, no one seemed to believe her motivation ?least of all her own defense team.

S2 Ep2: Ed Edwards: The Killer You Might've Missed

History?s most infamous serial killers had calling cards, from names and symbols to systems and strategies of predation. But the only thing tying together the story of Edward Wayne Edwards was his ability to resist definition. He was a robber and a self-proclaimed ?reformed man.? He was a father and a Zodiac Killer enthusiast. He was a vocal opponent of crime while murderously slipping under the radar. To this day, it?s unclear all that he got away with.
