          They say that death is in the details, and coroner Graham Hetrick knows this to be true. In Investigation Discovery’s “THE CORONER: I SPEAK FOR THE DEAD,” Hetrick shares the most compelling homicide cases from his 26 years as the Coroner of Dauphin County, Pa. It’s Hetrick’sjob to administer the medical legal death investigation process, enabling homicide detectives to fully reveal the story of how and why someone died. Through complex forensic analysis, he and his team uncover the secrets that every body holds, providing information crucial to solving homicide cases and giving a voice to those who can no longer speak. Hetrick returns with more clues to unravel in the 10-episode second season of “THE CORONER: I SPEAK FOR THE DEAD,” premiering Monday, July 17 at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery.
          Through compelling interviews, dramatic re-enactments, and storytelling by Hetrick himself, each episode of “THE CORONER: I SPEAK FOR THE DEAD” recounts one of Hetrick’s cases starting from the moment he is called to the scene of the crime. Hetrick lets viewers in on every aspect of his investigation until he determines the cause of death and, ultimately, helps law enforcement deliver justice for the victim and their family.
          In the season two premiere, “First Cut is the Deepest,” Hetrick works to solve the case of a beloved family man who has been stabbed to death in his Harrisburg, Pa., home. After career Army soldier Sam Gore is found by his pregnant fiancée, Hetrick uses his expertise in blood spatter analysis to deduce that not only was the killer able to get into close proximity to Gore, but the stab wounds might indicate a trained killer. Now it’s up to Hetrick and homicide detectives to put the puzzle pieces together and figure out who in Gore’s inner circle held a deadly grudge.
