Investigation Discovery premieres all-new special, Restless Souls on Monday, April 14.
Restless Souls follows what happens when a murder victim comes back from the grave to expose her killer’s secrets and avenges her death. The special will center on the 2004 murder of Ashley Howley and how complete stranger, psychic medium Kristy Robinett offered her services to help solve the case and bring the Howley family closure.
The special consists of interviews with Robinett, law enforcement, and loved ones including Howley’s cousin and family spokesperson Kerry Combs. It will go over the three-year police investigation and Robinett’s search for answers with the victim’s ghostly clues as her guide.
“Restless Souls goes beyond the grave to investigate murder like ID has never done before, with help from the victim herself,” said Kevin Bennett, general manager of Investigation Discovery. “By crossing our signature true-crime programming with this paranormal investigation, we expand beyond the traditional crime-solving techniques and demonstrate how real people have found closure in the deaths of their loved ones through alternate means.”
Indigo Films produces Restless Souls for Investigation Discovery with David M. Frank as executive producer and Carl Schick as supervising producer. Executive producer for Investigation Discovery is Max Culhane.
Restless Souls premieres on Monday, April 14 at 9/8c on Investigation Discovery.
