Each week, John Walsh leads viewers through unsolved violent crimes that urgently need to be closed – where time is of the essence and harnessing the power of ID’s active and engaged audience could bring these criminals to justice. Joining John in every episode is his son, Callahan Walsh, who leads the operation on the ground, working in tandem with the community and local authorities to search for persons-of-interest. In partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC), the series will also feature two missing children each hour, providing age-progression photos and descriptions in the hopes that viewers can provide new leads to their whereabouts.
In the premiere episode, Luis Frias from Blackwell, Oklahoma makes John Walsh’s personal most wanted list after allegedly stabbing Frias’s estranged wife to death in front of their children in 2013. Then, Callahan travels to Allegan, Michigan to explore the bizarre case of Harold “Butch” Knight, who leaves a trail of clues after confessing to killing his wife in 2015. He has been spotted in northern New England.
Investigation Discovery will tap into its uniquely engaged audience to help track down these persons of interest. An active call center and dedicated online hub staffed by trained operators will accept anonymous tips and alert the proper authorities.
