(Silver Spring, MD) - Holster your prop weapons and "stand down" David Caruso and Mark Harmon, because the real-life Homicide Hunter is back on patrol. Investigation Discovery is on the hunt once again with Lieutenant Joe Kenda, a 25-year veteran of Colorado's homicide investigation unit with one of the highest case-closure rates in the country, in the third season of HOMICIDE HUNTER: LT. JOE KENDA, premiering Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at 9/8c. The New York Post called Lt. Kenda, "the calmest man on TV - bar none." Each week, with his slow, intense, deliberate drawl and cool, no-nonsense demeanor, Lt. Kenda re-opens his "murder books," case files of the most disturbing cases still haunting him today.

Kicking off season three of HOMICIDE HUNTER, ID has partnered with the viral marketing firm Oddcast to develop "Number 1 Suspect," an online interrogation-themed game that leverages users' Facebook data, allowing Lt. Kenda to test their character, truthfulness, and integrity. Drawing information from Facebook and comparing it to each user's responses allows Lt. Kenda to "gather evidence" and establish the user's credibility. The web application will even display a list of friends for the user to implicate in the investigation. "Number 1 Suspect" is available at NumberOneSuspect.com and the Homicide Hunter Facebook fan page. The game is just one element of the network's multi-faceted digital strategy behind HOMICIDE HUNTER. Original web videos and bonus content are alsoavailable on InvestigationDiscovery.com.

"At ID, we're always looking for fresh ways to engage viewers and cultivate a broader online fan base," said Kevin Bennett, General Manager, Investigation Discovery. "Through this unique endeavor, we're able to offer passionate HOMICIDE HUNTER fans the additional content they crave."

In season three of HOMICIDE HUNTER, Lt. Kenda continues to revisit the cases that plague him. Through his personal interviews and compelling storytelling style, Lt. Kenda captivates with thedetails of a different investigation each week - from the racing adrenaline he felt when receiving an initial homicide call to the satisfaction of closing the case file.

Season three premiere episodes, include:

Murder Bites (Season Premiere) Tuesday, October 1 at 9/8c After a young woman is found naked and strangled in a park not 200 yards from her apartment, Lt. Kenda is called in to find the culprit. The killer could be any one of the woman's many suitors, but this assassin left a bizarre calling card: a bite mark. Making his way through a web of lies andpossible suspects, Lt. Kenda finally pins the killer, comparing his teeth tothe bite mark.

River of Blood Tuesday, October 8 at 9/8c Lt. Kenda has to rely on his covert network of street informants tocrack this case. Two bear hunters discover a blood-drenched car parked on the shoulder of a remote mountain road. Not long after, police find the car's owner riddled with buckshot. Lt. Joe Kenda recalls the challenges of this complexcase, where finding the car thief doesn't necessarily mean he's found the killer.

Weapon of Choice Tuesday, October 15 at 9/8c A beautiful Memorial Day turns deadly when a mother of two is brutally run over in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Police initially believe she was the victim of a standard hit and run, but Lt. Kenda discovers her death is hot on the heels of a killer driven by passion, jealousy and rage.

For Investigation Discovery, Thomas Cutler is executive producer,Sara Kozak is senior vice president of production, Kevin Bennett is generalmanager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President.
