History Detectives Special Investigations

Three investigators -- Wes Cowan, Kaiama Glover and Tukufu Zuberi -- work together to solve some of the biggest historical mysteries from America's past. Four episodes, each focusing on a single case, feature modern forensic science and cutting-edge tools to help solve some of the toughest cold cases in U.S. history. Stories include the sinking of the SS Sultana, the probable death of Glenn Miller, the 1885 murders of six black servant girls and two white women, and the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa.
