"We are continuing to give viewers an inside look into the investigation of criminals, with an emphasis on the psychological component of confessions," said Wolf. "This gives crime buffs insight into a side of police work that has never been examined before."
In the season premiere, an execution style double murder shakes a small mountain community in Eastern Tennessee when a young couple gets caught up in a web of romance and revenge. Could a feud sparked on social media lead to cold-blooded murder? When Billy Payne Jr. and Billie Jean Hayworth are found callously assassinated at home, their infant son is left as the only survivor. With no evidence or DNA at the crime scene, investigators are forced to navigate a feud that caused this small town of families to divide.
"Criminal Confessions" is produced by Wolf Reality and Shed Media (a division of Warner Bros. Unscripted & Alternative Television) with Dick Wolf, Tom Thayer, Pam Healey and Adam Kassen serving as Executive Producers.
