Cineflix Presents Season 2 of Murder In Paradise

Recounting real-life horror stories of dream vacations turned deadly, Cineflix’s riveting docu-drama series Murder in Paradise returns to Investigation Discovery with six all-new episodes, premiering Saturday, August 2nd at 10/9c.

Visiting some of the world’s most stunning locales, every spellbinding episode of Murder in Paradise includes dramatic reenactments, along with deeply emotional interviews with the victims’ loved ones and the investigators who eventually cracked the case.  

Murder in Paradise is chilling testimony that dream vacations can turn into nightmares,” said Jacqueline Bynon, Executive Producer at Cineflix, “and allows us to share the heartbreaking human stories behind the headlines.”

“If your summer plans include a tropical vacation, watch Murder in Paradise before purchasing those plane tickets,” said Thomas Cutler, Executive Producer at Investigation Discovery. “Many beachside locales seem like heaven on earth, but no place is immune to danger.”

Highlights from the first two episodes of Murder in Paradise are:

“Murder Isle” – Saturday, August 2nd at 10/9c

Free-spirited Brittany Royal falls in love with Hawaii and with a young man she meets there, Bo Johnson. Two months later, she’s pregnant and Bo is buying 10 acres of lava land where he plans to run a tour business. While they wait to close the deal, the couple camps out on the barren landscape in the shadow of a volcano. That is, until Brittany’s lifeless body is found floating in the ocean and Bo is nowhere to be found.

“Shallow Grave” – Saturday, August 9th at 10/9c

Cher Hughes and Keith Werle fall head over heels for Bocas del Toro, a stunning chain of islands off the coast of Panama.

But when the relationship sours and Keith moves on, a devastated Cher carves out a new life and eventually disappears with a mysterious new man. However, family and friends don’t buy the story, and file a missing persons report with local police.
