What happens in the confessional may stay in the confessional in a church, but not at the precinct. Suspects have the right to remain silent, but cops have the rites to break those vows. The all-new series Evil Talks: Chilling Confessions discloses the secrets to the leading mystery-and-suspense network on television.
Investigation Discovery’s Evil Talks: Chilling Confessions takes viewers “inside the interrogation room to witness first-hand the clever tactics employed by detectives in hopes of securing a criminal confession ID says in a statement. “What if you could be a fly on the wall for some of the most chilling conversations in the history of crime? What if you could hear these conversations, word-for-word, exactly as they really happened?”
The series will showcase real-life interrogation strategies used by police to break their suspects and confess what really happened, from establishing rapport with their suspects, to old-fashioned “good cop, bad cop” questioning.
Evil Talks: Chilling Confessions will premieres Monday, March 12 with “Rival Affections.” It focuses on Michael Pies and James Kelly O’Mara, two strangers living in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota. “Both men are found dead in similar ways – a single gunshot to the head,” reads the synopsis. “Police are puzzled, until they discover the one person who connects the two seemingly apparent strangers: Angelina Mae O’Mara – James’ wife and Michael’s lover. As the sole link between the men, detectives bring Angelina in for questioning. And when Angelina’s story begins to waver, two officers with very different interrogation strategies race against the clock to uncover the truth. Can they break their only suspect in this double homicide before she walks free?”
