Why Are Women Obsessed With Investigation Discovery’s Grisly TV Shows?

Jodie Gaines was 18 years old and on her way to a fish fry when she saw the blue lights of a cop car flash in her rearview. As detailed in an episode of House of Horrors: Kidnapped—one of a grip of ominously titled programs on the channel Investigation Discovery, the 24-7, true crime network—she was an outgoing high school senior from the tiny, Western Tennessee town of McKenzie, and was looking forward to a weekend home from the prep school she attended a few hours away. “I knew I wasn’t speeding,” she recalls in the program, “but I pulled over without hesitation.” It was a decision that would almost cost her her life: those “cops” were actually three men who kidnapped her for ransom, holding her for three days chained to a metal bed

Skye Edwards the Inverness miracle baby who was three hours from death

Baby Skye Edwards is her parents’ pride and joy – but at just a day old she had to be airlifted 170 miles and kept in a drug-induced coma to survive.

The 16-week-old was so ill following a mystery complication in the womb that her devastated parents were told if she had arrived three hours later she would have been stillborn.

Skye was covered in bruises, a rash and had severe heart, lung and blood problems following birth.

The tiny newborn’s organs began to shut down and her bone marrow production was “suppressed to the point of failure”, leaving her with a high risk of internal bleeding.
