Once LeBlanc began dating drug dealer Justin Thomas, Hartwell became determined to intervene.

3. “A Wedding and a Murder: Love, Lies and Alibis" on Friday, July 17 at 1 p.m. ET
CIA employee Marie Singleton-Jackson had been missing for five days when her car was found abandoned at a Los Angeles beach in November 1994. Local authorities searched the car, finding her cellphone, her purse, and, most surprisingly, the remains of Singleton-Jackson herself curled up in the trunk. She had been strangled, but most of her valuables and personal effects were left behind.
It wasn't until April 2008 that investigators were able to track down her killer with DNA evidence collected from the crime scene. “A Wedding and a Murder” explores the disturbing murder and how her family found justice 14 years later.
4. "Criminal Confessions: Belmont County, OH" on Saturday, July 18 at 8 a.m. ET
On May 7, 2017, police were called to the home of Brad McGarry after his best friend, David Kinney, found McGarry dead in his home with two gunshot wounds to the back of the head. Kinney, who was with his wife and daughter at the time, said the house had been ransacked.
Authorities soon contended, however, that the scene had only been staged to look like a botched burglary, and nothing of value was missing from the home. McGarry’s cousin later informed investigators that on the day of his murder, McGarry went to meet “DJ,” a married man with whom he was having an affair.
“Criminal Confessions” looks back on McGarry’s tragic murder and the killer no one suspected.
5. "Cold Justice: Deadly Affairs" on Saturday, July 18 at 5 p.m. ET
Residents of Jonesboro, Arkansas were shocked by the discovery of Stacey Devine’s body in February 2016. After the hardworking mother was found strangled and left in a ditch, authorities suspected Stacey’s husband, Charles Devine, whom she had been preparing to divorce.
Charles provided investigators with an alibi, however, and the case went cold.
That is, until veteran prosecutor Kelly Siegler joined forces with the Jonesboro police department to pore over Devine’s murder once again. This episode of “Cold Justice” revives the emotional case that stunned the community.
6. "Snapped: The Case Continues: Jodi Arias" on Sunday, July 19 at 7 p.m. ET
When Travis Alexander was found butchered in the shower of his Arizona home in June 2008, those close to him were quick to suggest Alexander’s former girlfriend, Jodi Arias, as a potential suspect. While Arias admitted to killing her ex-boyfriend after he had broken up with her, she claimed she acted in self-defense.
Thanks in no small part to Arias’ frequent media appearances, the ensuing trial generated overwhelming interest not only in Arias and Alexander’s turbulent relationship, but also in Arias’ erratic behavior throughout the investigation.
Arias was convicted of first-degree murder in 2013, but she continues to maintain that she was the victim of an abusive relationship with the late Alexander. In this two-part special, “Snapped: The Case Continues” revisits the grisly killing and the woman at the center of it all.
