On a gritty, compassionate episode of After Hours AM/The Criminal Code — Wednesdays 9-11pE with hosts Joel Sturgis, Eric Olsen, and secret weapon, forensic psychologist Dr. Clarissa Cole — we speak with legendary homicide detective Garry McFadden, whose career is the subject of Investigation Discovery’s I AM HOMICIDE, now in its second hit season. We talk with Garry at 10pE; at 9pE, Clarissa leads us through the week’s most noteworthy True Crime news with insight and wit.
Season two of I AM HOMICIDE premiered June 6 and runs on Tuesdays at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery. Charlotte Mecklenburg County detective Garry McFadden is an officer unlike any other. As one of America’s most dedicated detectives, his familiarity with every street corner in town has enabled him to protect and serve the community to which he has devoted his life. He uses his street smarts — and most importantly his relationships within the community — to forge a deep connection that goes beyond the search for the perpetrator. His dedication to the pursuit of justice is equally as important as the lives of the families he has vowed to protect as if they were his own, all the while wearing the best suits in town.
Over his career, McFadden has solved nearly 700 homicide cases with a 90 percent success rate with investigations he pursues. In 10 all-new episodes, viewers witness his most memorable and diabolical cases, from his run-in with a local white supremacist that resulted in a cross-country manhunt, to a harrowing murder in which the only witness was a three-year-old child.
Forthcoming episodes include:
