Bites from bull sharks, tiger sharks and great hammerheads — up to 4.2 metres long — are compared to scars photographed on dolphins.

JonBenét: An American Murder Mystery

It was the crime that gripped the nation - a bright, beaming, six-year old beauty queen is mysteriously murdered in her very own home the day after Christmas in 1996.

Investigators navigated false leads, a heavily compromised crime scene and a maze of finger-pointing.

But now, 20 years later, Investigation Discovery sheds new light on the still-unsolved case of who killed JonBenét Ramsey.

In a three-part series, ID rips this cold case open, chronologically reexamining the evidence to challenge long-held beliefs at the centre of this enduring mystery.

JonBenét: An American Murder Mystery is an unabridged and comprehensive look at the entire case around JonBenét Ramsey's murder, from top-to-bottom.

As headlines and sensational breaking news chronicled the investigation's every move, the country became transfixed by the child behind the pageant star, and the bizarre circumstances of her death.

Featuring rarely-shared police interrogation tapes, unsealed documents and more than 500 family photos, JonBenét: An American Murder Mystery is the definitive look at every angle of this tragic and controversial murder investigation.

Exclusive interviewees featured in this three-part series include Gordon Coombes, a former investigator for the Boulder County District Attorney's office, offering unique insight into the inner-workings of the office during critical moments in the case.

There's also Diane Dimond, an investigative journalist for Hard Copy who covered the case on the ground in Boulder from the very beginning.

Also interviewed are Bobby Brown and Steve Pease, both former Colorado Springs Detectives and protégés of Lou Smit's famed Apple Dumpling Gang - a group of retired law enforcement officials famous for solving some of the nation's toughest cold cases.

Other individuals interviewed include Ollie Gray and John San Agustin, private investigators for the Ramsey family and leading voices advocating the "Intruder Theory"; Bob Whitson, former Sergeant in the Boulder Police, who was in the Ramsey house the day JonBenét's body was discovered; and Pamela Griffin, Patsy Ramsey's confidant who handmade all of JonBenét's pageant costumes.

A Killer on the Loose

Look deep inside the homicide case of JonBenét that gripped the nation with exclusive interviews and never-before-seen footage from the crime scene, hours after her body was found.

Pool of Suspects

As the Boulder Police zero in on the Ramsey family as culpable of JonBenét's murder, the case is turned on its head when a crop of shocking new suspects emerges...

He Calls Himself Daxis

The JonBenét Ramsey murder case takes an alarming turn when an anonymous confession comes to light in an unlikely location 8,000 miles away from Colorado.

In an exclusive interview, we hear from the only person ever arrested for JonBenét's murder.
