Six New Mysteries Will Be Dropped in Volume 2 of Unsolved Mysteries
Six new mysteries will be featured in six new episodes of Volume 2 on Unsolved Mysteries.
“What led to the death of a well-respected political insider? Was an unidentified woman found dead in Oslo, Norway, part of a secret intelligence operation? Did the sudden loss of lives in Japan’s 2011 tsunami result in supernatural encounters?” the Netflix synopsis says.
The first episode, “Washington Inside Murder,” looks into the death of John “Jack” Wheeler a former White House aide whose body was found in a landfill in 2010. He served in Vietnam, and became known for co-founding the organization that built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, better known as the Wall, according to The Washington Post.
“Death in Oslo” focuses on a woman who was founded dead in a hotel room in Norway and the investigation to identify her. “Death Row Fugitive” tells the story of Lester Eubanks, who was convicted of attempted sexual assault and attempted murder. He escaped custody in 1973 and has eluded police for nearly 50 years.
“Tsunami Spirits” explores a huge number of claimed ghost sightings following the devastating tsunami in Ishinomaki, Japan in 2011. Then, “Lady in the Lake” provides contexts in the death of JoAnn Romain. Her body was found in a lake, following what may have been a suicide. Her family believes she was murdered. Finally, “Stolen Kids” looks into the disappearance of two toddlers within months in 1989 in Harlem.
Netflix Invites Viewers to Help Solve Their Mysteries
The original Unsolved Mysteries, which premiered on NBC in 1987, was one of the longest running programs on TV. It didn’t just provide entertainment. Viewers helped by sharing what they knew, and real cold cases were solved. Sometimes, a small piece of seemingly irrelevant information is the missing piece investigators need to crack a case.
Airing the stories produced real results. Of more than 1,300 mysteries presented in more than 230 episodes, half the cases of wanted fugitives were solved, more than 100 families were reunited with a lost loved one, and seven people who were wrongfully convicted were exonerated and released, Netflix reported.
“The series has received six Emmy nominations and numerous commendations from law enforcement agencies, including the FBI and U.S. Marshals Service,” Netflix writes.
