Lt. Joe Kenda, one of the toughest, most experienced homicide detectives in ID history, is back exclusively on discovery+ with an all new series. Over the years, Kenda has heard about cases that defy logic - investigations so confounding that they feel more scripted in Hollywood than reality. In American Detective, Kenda trades in his own case files to bring viewers astounding investigations from across the country, with each episode featuring a different homicide detective whose tireless efforts helped put a killer behind bars and bring justice for the victim.

JonBenet Ramsey: What Really Happened?

Hidden evidence. Buried theories. If the Ramseys did not kill their daughter, who did?

Featuring exclusive, never-before-heard exclusive real audio, JonBenet: What Really Happened sheds light on the investigation conducted by detective Lou Smit, who was brought out of retirement to work on the Ramsey case, and who had worked on over 200 homicide investigations, never losing a case in court. Through his detailed daily audio recordings, you'll follow his investigation as his shifts his attention from the Ramseys to someone else. Said Smit, "There is evidence of an intruder. I say this over and over again. Nobody wants to listen. There is absolutely no motive for the Ramseys to do it."

Is one of the world's most infamous cases finally resolved?
