The return is set for a long-running investigative program centered on Emmy-winning TV journalist and newscaster Paula Zahn. “On the Case with Paula Zahn” returns to Investigation Discovery July 15 for its 17th season.
“The season premiere of ‘On the Case’ follows the disappearance of 8-year-old April Tinsley in Fort Wayne, Indiana,” the network says in today’s announcement. “After a playdate with a friend just a few blocks away, April never came home. Her mother immediately called anyone who might know her daughter’s whereabouts. When hours pass without any sign of April, police join the search. Three days later, a jogger discovers April’s lifeless body on the side of a road. She had been sexually assaulted and murdered. With no leads, the case went cold for two years until a chilling message was discovered not far from where April’s body was found. The message was the beginning of a terrifying game of cat and mouse with the killer that has lasted for decades.”
