Have you ever wondered what it would be like to see a murder case through the eyes of police? Now you can!

"The Murder Tapes," a groundbreaking new Investigation Discovery series, uses body camera footage from police departments across America to tell stories in a way viewers have never experienced.

For the first time, the audience will see the case through the eyes of the detectives.

Viewers will get to experience every thrilling moment of a murder investigation as investigators work to track down the killer. The audience will be there from the first 911 call to the interrogation room, and interviews with witnesses and family members.

In these cases, memories may be fallible, but the recordings are forever.

"The Murder Tapes" uses every conceivable form of footage in a homicide case, including up-close perspectives from those at the scene and presenting the aftermath of a murder in a raw and unfiltered style.

The recordings are woven in with present-day interviews with friends, family, and law enforcement officers.

Upcoming stories covered on "The Murder Tapes" include a loving father and former firefighter found dead inside his New Mexico home; a mysterious body discovered near a mobile home park in Port New Richey, Florida, and the mysterious murder of a retired pastor.

In each story, viewers will watch the story unfold in real-time — just like the investigators who arrive on crime scenes with no idea what's in store.

The audience will experience every twist and turn, every false lead, and every breakthrough alongside the detectives until the killer is captured and sentenced.

"The Murder Tapes" premieres August 28 at 10/9c on Investigation Discovery!
