ALL THAT GLITTERS FADES TO COLD-BLOODED REALITY IN INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY'S NEW SERIES "BEAUTY QUEEN MURDERS"

(Silver Spring, MD) - Beauty pageants are the ultimate fairytale for many young women, but luscious lips and curvaceous hips spell out danger for the pageant darlings featured on Investigation Discovery's all-new series BEAUTY QUEEN MURDERS. They were all so young, so beautiful, and held so much promise - and they were all killed before their time in the spotlight was up. Because while their perfectly made-up eyes were fixed on winning a title, they caught the attention of not only the judges but a murderer waiting in the wings. The first season of BEAUTY QUEEN MURDERS premieres Tuesday, October 1 at 10/9c only on Investigation Discovery.

"BEAUTY QUEEN MURDERS reveals the not-so-pretty side of the typical pageant queen fantasy," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, and Military Channel. "For these American sweethearts, winning a sash and crown may have empowered them to reach for the stars, but it couldn't defend them against the fatal lure of a dangerous admirer."

Each episode of BEAUTY QUEEN MURDERS unveils the chilling story of one beauty queen's rise and untimely demise, interwoven with commentary from her loved ones and the law enforcement that helped catch her killer. In the premiere episode on Tuesday, October 1 at 10/9c, Jackie Johns is the "it girl" of Nixa, Mo., with a quick wit and radiant smile. The young beauty attracts even more attention when she is crowned queen of the town's famous "Sucker Day Festival." Not all of the attention is welcome. One Monday night after her shift at the Sale Barn Café, 20-year-old Johns never makes it home. In a town where everyone knows each other, the list of suspects is as long as the town registry.

Additional premieres include:

Fatal Obsession Tuesday, October 8 at 10/9c In Rosamond, Calif., young Tana Woolley is a desert rose in a barren wasteland. She is the pride and joy of her family, whose tall, elegant stature and humble charm earns her the title of Miss Rosamond in 1978. But just three weeks after moving into her own apartment, she is found raped and murdered. Woolley's case goes cold for more than 25 years until an ambitious detective discovers a startling revelation that could solve the case once and for all.

Beauty Queen Killer Tuesday, October 15 at 10/9c Pretty girls in Miami are a dime a dozen in the 1980s, but Elizabeth Kenyon stands out. Her lush brown hair and gorgeous figure have earned her titles in multiple beauty pageants and a bright future in modeling. But when the 23-year-old heads out for a photo shoot and never returns, her friends and family fear the worst. When pageant girls start disappearing across the country, investigators are left wondering if there might be a serial killer on the loose who's targeting beauty queens.

Someone's Watching You Tuesday, October 22 at 10/9c Nineteen-year-old Nona Dirksmeyer, is a rising star in Russellville, Ark. After winning the coveted Miss Petit Jean Valley beauty pageant, Dirksmeyer sets her sights on the Miss Arkansas title. But her dreams are tragically cut short by murder. What investigators find at the crime scene will shock everyone in town. Someone literally has blood on his hands, but will justice ever be served?

If Looks Could Kill Tuesday, October 29 at 10/9c On sleepy Whidbey Island, Wash, Peggy Sue Thomas is a knockout. When the six-foot tall, red-headed mother of two enters the Mrs. Continental USA Pageant, she's a shoe-in for the evening gown title. But when her best friend's husband turns up dead, Thomas finds herself at the center of a murder investigation. Is she involved in the murder, or will she be next on the killer's list?

Deadly Sins Tuesday, November 5 at 10/9c Sheila Jo Harris is as comfortable in camouflage as she is with a crown on her head. When the 18 year old discovers the world of beauty pageants, she's never been more passionate about anything. In fact, the Nevada native moves to a different city to compete in her biggest pageant yet. But just days after settling into her new apartment, Harris is found brutally murdered. While investigators believe they know who killed the young beauty, a shocking twist 20 years in the making will change everything.
