INVESTIGATION DISCOVERY MARKS 20th ANNIVERSARY OF LONG ISLAND RAILROAD MASSACRE WITH WORLD TELEVISION PREMIERE DOCUMENTARY -- "ID FILMS: TERROR ON A TRAIN" DEBUTS DECEMBER 4

(Silver Spring, MD) - In the 20 years since the Long Island Railroad Massacre, an entire generation has lived in the era of mass murder -- Columbine, Virginia Tech, and Sandy Hook. Investigation Discovery marks the 20th anniversary of the tragic event with ID FILMS: TERROR ON A TRAIN premiering Wednesday, December 4 at 10/9c. This one-hour special presentation brings viewers into the aisles of the LIRR train where gunman Colin Ferguson opened fire upon the innocent victims trapped on their rush hour commute home from New York City. Told primarily through interviews with the survivors and families of the victims, we are taken back in time as they share their terrifying experience and how they continue to cope today.

"In the 20 years since the tragic Long Island Railroad shooting, news of senseless violence is heard all too often today," said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, Military Channel and Destination America. "There is rarely a way to bring closure for those deeply impacted by horrific tragedies - but, by marking this heartbreaking event with an oral history featuring first-hand accounts from the victims themselves, TERROR ON A TRAIN serves, in some small way, to inform a new generation."

"As a native Long Islander, growing up just 10 minutes away from the massacre and losing a high school classmate, this is a very personal story for me," said Charlie Minn, filmmaker. "It was important for me to do this film and finally give the many victims of this crime a voice."

ID FILMS: TERROR ON A TRAIN provides a revealing look at the Long Island Railroad shooting that occurred on December 7, 1993. The violent shooting left six people dead, 25 wounded, and a nation left struggling to comprehend a horrific act. The country watched, transfixed by the subsequent trial, as witnesses and survivors were forced to face the madman, Ferguson, who represented himself, during cross examination on live television. The documentary is part of the ID FILMS strand, the television home for projects that shine a light on important, overlooked aspects of our justice system and showcase compelling stories of mystery, intrigue, and determination that made headlines.
