[via press release from Investigation Discovery]


(Silver Spring, MD) - After the credits roll, time marches on for the people and cases featured in Investigation Discovery's hit series, and with time comes new beginnings, enduring pain, and old habits dying hard. Victims are still tormented by the crimes they survived, family and friends of the deceased try to move past the sudden and nonsensical loss of their loved one, and the convicted carry on the fight for their freedom at parole hearings... or with a shiv. In a special week of programming by Investigation Discovery, in-house crime expert Pat LaLama provides updates to cases that have already been profiled on ID. LaLama hosts wraps at the end of each 8 PM episode to reveal what has happened since the handcuffs were locked and the victims were left to pick up the pieces. With no shortage of new relationships, break out attempts, and triumphant life changes to profile, the weeklong programming stunt is designed to give ID viewers new details on the cases that shocked, saddened, and left them curious for more information. UPDATE EDITION WEEK airs nightly at 8 PM (E/P) from Monday, May 27 - Sunday, June 2 on Investigation Discovery.

"The cases we profile on Investigation Discovery continue to develop and impact people's lives long after the show airs, as these crimes forever affect everyone involved," said Kevin Bennett, general manager of Investigation Discovery. "Our viewers constantly ask 'what happened next?' and this programming week is yet another new way for ID to keep our viewers connected to the powerful and emotional stories that we profile."

The lineup for UPDATE EDITION WEEK is as follows:

DEADLY WOMEN - Episode: Lover's Revenge Update Edition Episode airs Monday, May 27 at 8 PM From the outside, Jane Andrews and Tom Cressman seemed to be an enviable pair. She was a former royal dresser to the Duchess of York, and he was a multimillionaire businessman raised in a wealthy family. But Cressman was not happy in the relationship and when he wanted out, Andrews would not give up so easily. After discovering erotic emails to another woman on Cressman's computer, Andrews snapped. Pat LaLama discovers that more than a decade in prison hasn't done much to calm Andrews' obsessions. Location: London

When Linda made the mistake of trying to end their relationship, the young lovers plotted to kill her and live off the money from a life insurance payout.
