‘People Magazine Investigates’ Returns November 4 with the Story of the Springfield Three
True crime aficionados, take note. People Magazine Investigates is coming back to TV with 12 all-new stories of notorious crimes. A fourth season of the show will premiere on Investigation Discovery on November 4, and the first episode will explore an infamous missing persons case that’s gone unsolved for more than 25 years.
The case of the Springfield Three
The new season of People Magazine Investigates begins with a look at a chilling disappearance that has baffled investigators for more than a quarter-century. It’s come to be known as the case of the Springfield Three.
The story begins on June 6, 1992, when Suzie Street and Stacy McCall graduated from Kickapoo High School in Springfield, Missouri. After being awarded their diplomas, the two girls headed out to celebrate at a series of graduation parties. Then, in the early hours of the next morning, the two girls returned to Suzie’s home, where they planned to spend the night.
When the morning of June 7 rolled around, there was no sign of the girls. Also missing was Suzie Street’s mother, Sherill Levitt. When Stacy’s family filed a missing person’s report, police got to work trying to find out what happened to the missing women. But they had little to go on.
Police are still looking for the missing women
Though it has been decades since Suzie Street, Sherill Levitt, and Stacy McCall vanished, Springfield, Missouri, police are still trying to find out what happened. A page on the police department’s website notes that it appears that the two teenagers did return to Suzie’s home, since all three women’s purses, as well as money, keys, cars, and even the family’s dog, were still at the house. That led authorities to suspect they may have been abducted.
According to police, “an extensive investigation into the lives of the missing women has been conducted with no positive leads concerning the reason for their disappearance or their location.” Anyone with information about the women and their whereabouts is asked to contact the Springfield Police Department.
‘People Magazine Investigates’ explores memorable crimes
So far, we don’t know what other crimes might be covered in the upcoming season of People Magazine Investigates. But past seasons have looked at some of the most notorious murders and disappearances in recent memory. Previous episodes have looked at the unsolved murder of JonBenet Ramsey, the still-unidentified Long Island serial killer, the 1999 disappearance of Arizona 11-year-old Mikelle Biggs, and the hunt for the Golden State Killer.
“People’s true crime editorial team is truly exceptional and with their expert investigative reporting, combined with ID’s unparalleled storytelling, it’s just a ‘natural born killer’ collaboration,” said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, in a statement. “We are thrilled to continue our partnership in this new season, bringing compelling, emotional stories to our viewers and PEOPLE’s readers, respectively.”
