Brand new and exclusive to Crime+Investigation Buried in the Backyard examines true-crime stories about unfortunate victims found buried in the most unlikely of places - the backyard. No one would suspect that the perfectly manicured lawns with trimmed hedges and fences lined up like toy soldiers would harbour such a secret, but sometimes things are not always what they seem. When the remains are unearthed, it’s the very beginning of an investigation, police piece together the person's identity and determine the cause of death before seeking the individual responsible. However, finding the remains is only the beginning, and each episode will follow the police investigation from discovering the body to identifying it, determining cause of death and who committed the murder. Buried in the Backyard features thrilling and captivating re-creations, real life footage from the case, paired with firsthand knowledge from those closest to the victims. Each hour-long episode unfolds as investigators track down the `why' and `how' and give viewers a shocking tale.
