Why does anyone commit murder? Sometimes the answer is easy to figure out - a jealous spouse, an angry co-worker. But in a lot of cases, the reasons aren't so clear-cut. These are the murders that don't make sense at first. The ones that can see pointless or even random. This show takes a look at some cases that are the result of passions and reasons that aren't apparent at first glance. Each episode reenacts a crime and uses original interviews with family members and law enforcement to unveil the real causes behind some truly horrific crimes. The show also gives the survivors an opportunity to tell the world a little bit about the victim's life.
