Murder U is a true crime series from Investigation Discovery that premiered in 2016. The show delves into mysteries surrounding murders that have taken place on or near college campuses across the United States. The series is hosted by Ellie Moon, a seasoned investigative journalist, who leads viewers through each case.

Throughout the series, Moon is joined by Robert Notman, a veteran homicide detective, and Jeremy Hillhouse, a retired college police chief. Together, the trio revisit some of the most shocking college campus murders in recent history, providing viewers with a behind-the-scenes look at how these investigations unfolded.

Each episode of Murder U takes viewers through a different case. The series primarily focuses on cases that were ultimately solved, but there are a few unsolved cases as well. The show uses interviews with investigators, friends and family of the victims, and sometimes even the perpetrators themselves, to provide insight into the motives and circumstances surrounding each case.

One particularly chilling episode of Murder U centers around the murder of a young woman named Tricia Todd. Todd, a Florida Air National Guard member and mother of a young daughter, vanished without a trace in April 2016. The case immediately became a high profile one, and investigators quickly zeroed in on Todd's ex-husband, Steven Williams, as the primary suspect. In an interview with Moon, Williams admits to killing Todd, but provides little insight into why he did it.

Throughout the episode, Moon and Hillhouse revisit the crime scene and speak to those who knew Todd and Williams, providing a devastating overview of the tragic events that led to Todd's death. As the investigation progresses, viewers learn about additional evidence that was uncovered, including a gruesome video that Williams had filmed of himself dismembering Todd's body. In the end, Williams was sentenced to life in prison for the murder, but the case remains a tragic and unsettling example of domestic violence gone terribly wrong.

Another episode of Murder U centers around the 2014 murder of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham. The case, which made national news at the time, had many twists and turns, and the investigation was ultimately aided by surveillance footage from around the area where Graham was last seen. Moon and Notman interview prosecutors, investigators, and Graham's friends to piece together the events leading up to her murder and the details of the investigation that ultimately led to the arrest and conviction of her killer.

Throughout the series, Murder U provides a sobering look at the types of crimes that are often overlooked at American colleges and universities. From domestic violence to drug-related homicides, the show doesn't shy away from the darker side of campus life. In one episode, Moon and Hillhouse investigate a series of murders that took place in a Louisiana college town over the course of several years. The killer, who was finally caught and convicted, had targeted young women who worked the night shift at local businesses.

Overall, Murder U is a gripping true crime series that will appeal to fans of other Investigation Discovery shows such as Dateline and 48 Hours. The show takes a close look at some of the most shocking and unsettling crimes that have taken place at American colleges and universities in recent years, providing a haunting reminder of the dangers that can lurk in unexpected places.

Murder U is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (6 episodes). The series first aired on April 20, 2016.
