The Fog of Murder

The Fog of Murder drops you into the surreal, disorienting heart of a murder case.

The investigation unfolds through a combination of heart-stopping first-person accounts, chilling recreations, actual videos, recordings, and photographs straight from the police files.

As each piece of the murder puzzle falls into place, the fog of uncertainty lifts and the case is solved.

With a murder occurs inside a Washington State home, police seem to have the case solved almost immediately.

A series of disturbing revelations make the obvious suspect's apparent guilt crumble right before detectives' eyes, and a last-minute twist puts the entire case in a whole new light.

A young woman disappears in the middle of the day amid of tens of thousands of people - and yet nobody sees or hears a thing.

A testosterone-fueled weekend at a car show places five young friends under the police microscope as detectives re-trace their steps and look for evidence of a killer who is in plain sight.

In the series premiere, "Dying Words": A chilling 911 call from a remote country home contains cryptic clues to a shocking murder that divides a small Missouri town and shatters a prominent family.

Zoey runs into Charlie during college orientation where she learns that he moonlights as an adjunct marketing professor.

In the series premiere, Zoey arrives at California University certain she will be a hot shot on campus, but quickly learns she may have a little more growing to do.
