DESCRIPTION: (from Investigation Discovery's press release, October 2014) Investigation Discovery (ID) returns to profile the bad old days of the '50s and '60s with season two of A CRIME TO REMEMBER. Set against the backdrop of Studebakers, fedoras, and three-martini lunches, these stories of truly mad men and women reveal complicated relationships where thwarted dreams and repressed passions led to terrible crimes. Each hour-long episode treats the viewer to the "through-the-looking-glass" experience of crime solving in decades past, in a pre-DNA era when 911 didn't even exist. It wasn't just the criminals who confounded the cops, the cultural taboos and social norms of the time were also obstacles in the pursuit of justice. Long-forgotten cases are brought to life and new details about infamous crimes are revealed. The Kitty Genovese murder captured the attention of the world, not because of the victim or killer, but because of the witnesses, and the Case of Ruby McCollum - a shooting in the Jim Crow South - could be the most famous murder you've never heard of.
