Series descriptions and schedules continue:
Fuga Casi Perfecta – Mondays at 7 PM ET/ 4 PM PT
For these perpetrators, the stories may be different, but the motives are always the same - to stay out of prison and live life on the lam. The people profiled in Fuga Casi Perfecta have evaded justice for years, sometimes decades, by using their families, fake identification and even violence to avoid capture. Each episode features an interview from prison with these slick culprits, who spill where they found shelter, how they changed their identities and how they almost got away with it.
Caso Cerrado – Tuesdays at 7 PM ET/ 4 PM PT
Each episode sees a mysterious murder case told through first-person accounts directly from America's elite law enforcement officers. A highly experienced team of scientists including forensic analysts, computer forensic specialists, trace evidence experts, crime scene technicians and handwriting experts present the remarkable investigation techniques, which helped solve these brutal crimes.
Los Sobrevivientes – Wednesdays at 7 PM ET/ 4 PM PT
This series features the death-defying and moving stories of people who, regardless of the obstacles or consequences, were determined to survive an animal attack. Over the course of 10 episodes, the program immerses viewers in the psychological experience of those involved, focusing on what pulled them through and what left them powerfully changed.
Forenses al Extremo - Thursdays 7 PM ET/ 4 PM PT
Compelling cases, bizarre crime scenes, and criminal minds so conniving they defy understanding. Everyone is a suspect. New, never-before seen forensic techniques are employed to solve the most puzzling of cases.
