"I Survived A Serial Killer"

In the new special "I Survived a Serial Killer," E! chronicles the personal accounts of three women who faced death and lived to tell their tales. Through the victims' first-hand accounts and insider interviews, this captivating hour-long special explores violent cases that garnered nationwide publicity for their horrific details and surprising outcomes.

Featured in the special are:

Shea McDonough (Chelmsford, Massachusetts)

In July of 2007, long-haul trucker Adam Leroy Lane prowled neighborhoods near the interstate looking for female victims. He succeeded in murdering two women... then he met Shea McDonough.

Michele Chapman (Zachary, Louisiana)

In April of 1993, 15 year-old Michele Chapman survived a vicious attack by a man with a machete. For ten years no one was prosecuted. Then, a series of women were raped and murdered in nearby Baton Rouge. By using Michele's description of her attacker, authorities brought a violent predator to justice.

Lydia Tillman (Fort Collins, Colorado) & Kenia Monge (Denver, Colorado)

On Fourth of July weekend in 2011, firefighters discovered Lydia Tillman naked, brutally beaten, and barely alive after she leaped from the second story window of her burning apartment. DNA was obtained from Lydia that identified her attacker... and, in a surprising turn, linked this predator to the mysterious 2011 disappearance of 19 year-old Kenia Monge.

"Co-Ed Nightmares"

E!'s night of investigative programming continues with the E! special "Co-Ed Nightmares," which explores the horrific stories of four beautiful co-ed girls with big plans and promising futures, whose lives were cut way too short by tragedy. Featuring exclusive interviews with the victims' families and friends, rare footage and first-hand accounts from those involved in the cases, this special presents the full picture of these devastating stories that captured the attention of millions.

Featured in the special are:

Lynsie Ekelund (Placentia, California)

20-year-old Southern California college student Lynsie Ekelund went missing in early 2001. For ten long years, there were no answers until a surprise confession revealed results that stunned the community.

Morgan Harrington (Charlottesville, Virginia)

In the fall of 2009, Morgan Harrington went to a much-anticipated Metallica concert and mysteriously disappeared. The case of this 20-year-old Virginia Tech student became the focus of heavy media interest, as even members of the band got involved. Despite all the attention, the investigation produced no clues until a local farmer called police with a shocking discovery.

Michaela Shunick (Lafayette, Louisiana)

University of Louisiana college student Michaela Shunick disappeared late one spring night in 2012 while riding her bike home from a friend's house. After weeks of combing the area, there was no sign of the pretty blond co-ed. Authorities soon discovered that a mystery man in a New Orleans area emergency room, 135 miles away, was the key to solving the case.

Katie Sepich (Carlsbad, New Mexico)

Late one night in 2003, Katie Sepich, a grad student at New Mexico State University, left a party... and became the victim in a brutal murder mystery. The journey to discover her killer brought about permanent change to the way DNA is used to save lives and identify those responsible for violent crimes.
