Exclusive: Investigation Discovery Adds Two Spooky New Crime Shows

Investigation Discovery: Restless Souls

True crime network Investigation Discovery is getting creepier this April, launching two new shows that dabble in the paranormal space.

The new crime special Restless Souls, which airs Monday, April 14, at 9/8c, takes a look at the 2004 murder mystery of Ashley Howley. After reporting a break-in at her Columbus, Ohio, apartment, Howley disappeared — and her case grew cold. But a year later in Michigan, psychic medium Kristy Robinett says she was awakened by the ghost of Howley.

Robinett, who had worked with law enforcement in the past to aid investigations, says this was the first time she was actually enlisted by a ghost. She helped police eventually locate Howley’s grave.

Restless Souls goes beyond the grave to investigate murder like ID has never done before, with help from the victim herself,” says Investigation Discovery general manager Kevin Bennett. “By crossing our signature true-crime programming with this paranormal investigation, we expand beyond the traditional crime-solving techniques and demonstrate how real people have found closure in the deaths of their loved ones through alternate means.”

Also premiering next month: The three-part series Cell Block Psychic, which stars Vicki Monroe, a medium who communicates with victims from beyond the grave in front of their loved ones — and sometimes their killers. Monroe attempts to figure out what happened before, during and after a murder. The show premieres Monday, April 21, at 9/8c.

Here’s a first look at Restless Souls:
