ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK? INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY'S NEW SERIES "DEAD OF NIGHT" REVEALS THE EVIL THAT LURKS IN THE SHADOWS OF THE NIGHT
(Silver Spring, MD) - There's just something about darkness that awakens our primal fears. As children, nightlights keep the boogeyman at bay, but by adulthood we learn that hiding under the covers is no defense against true evil. Investigation Discovery's new series DEAD OF NIGHT shines light on nighttime crimes in which darkness hides predators hungry for a midnight attack. Providing vivid insight into a night on the town that turned fatal in an instant, each episode of DEAD OF NIGHT recounts the dark, deadly deed and the daytime investigation that followed. Told through interviews with loved ones and law enforcement, DEAD OF NIGHT premieres Tuesday, March 12 at 10 PM E/P on Investigation Discovery.
"We've all wondered what may lurk in the shadows, whether it was on a deserted city street corner, along a lonely stretch of highway, or while investigating a strange bump in the night," said Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery. "DEAD OF NIGHT proves that, sometimes, it's not only your wishes that come true - it's your nightmares, too."
The first three episodes include:

Her family is shocked when police find that Laura left the club with not one, but two strange men. Police follow her trail 60 miles north into the hands of a registered sex offender, but Laura is nowhere to be found.

As leads dry up, the best hope for justice lies in spit, blood, and the tip of a mysterious hair. Location: Jacksonville Beach, FL
