Fatal Encounters, August 8 on Investigation Discovery

What if she hadn’t answered the door? What if he had gone to the movies instead of to the bar? Chance meetings, everyday decisions and random acts of violence create a deadly collision course in Fatal Encounters, premiering Wednesday, August 8 at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. ET on Investigation Discovery.

Each episode of the 10-part series begins with the introduction of the victim and the killer as they go about their normal business, unaware of what’s about to transpire.

While an on-screen clock counts down the victim’s final hours, days, or even years, viewers track the decisions and actions that bring the victim closer to their killer’s fatal trap, not knowing until the last moment which person will fall prey and who will have blood on their hands.
Highlights from the first episodes of Fatal Encounters include:
