Starting August 30th, the new spine-tingling true crime series Very Bad Men will air on Investigation Discovery every Thursday at 10pm. This fast-paced, stylish documentary series of 20 x 30 minute episodes unravels the mysteries behind truly horrific crimes and investigates the lives of people who are forever affected by a real-life villain.

Survivors of a crime testify to the devastating effects that one man had on their lives. Through interviews, stylized recreations, and archival sources, we meet the victims and those who have lost loved ones to murder. Their first-hand telling of stories launches a relentless investigation to find and convict the criminal. These murderers, rapists, and felons must be brought to justice.
The questions of who committed the crime, how they did it, and why, drive the narrative. Detectives follow a trail of clues to find the identity of the perpetrator, often encountering seemingly impenetrable obstacles. Forensics, old-fashioned investigation and criminal errors combine to track down the criminal.

When the villain is revealed, the depth and extent of their crimes is shocking. These are some of the worst criminals on file and their capture and prosecution is often far from simple.

As each Very Bad Man is brought to account for his horrendous crimes, the victims go through a cathartic process in which their pain is – to some measure – released.

Tonight, there are 2 episodes on: John Eric Armstrong at 10pm and BTK at 10:30pm.
