Plot Synopsis

THE CORONER: I SPEAK FOR THE DEAD features an inside look at shocking murder cases and complex forensic investigations: while detectives search for clues among the living, renowned Pennsylvania coroner Graham Hetrick uncovers the secrets of the dead by revealing their untold stories. Each one-hour episode chronicles one homicide case pulled directly from Hetrick's personal files. From the moment he receives the call, to the crime scene where he is first introduced to the victim, to the autopsy, viewers are led through a series of twists and turns as Hetrick peels back the layers of the investigation to reveal how the murder happened and, more importantly, who is to blame. In the series opener, "Rigor Mortis," when a young mother is beaten and shot to death in her tough Harrisburg neighborhood, investigators aren't lacking for suspects. But Hetrick sees signs of a crime of passion and believes Iris' killer could be hiding in plain sight. On Monday, July 17, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, Investigation Discovery premiered the second season of THE CORONER: I SPEAK FOR THE DEAD. In the season opener, "First Cut Is the Deepest," Hetrick works to solve the case of a beloved family man who has been stabbed to death in his Harrisburg, PA, home. After career Army soldier Sam Gore is found by his pregnant fiancee, Hetrick uses his expertise in blood spatter analysis to deduce that not only was the killer able to get into close proximity to Gore, but the stab wounds might indicate a trained killer. Now it's up to Hetrick and homicide detectives to put the puzzle pieces together and figure out who in Gore's inner circle held a deadly grudge. Subsequent Season 2 episodes include the stories of: 32-year-old Bob Curley; 86-year-old Goldie Snyder; Marcus Garner; and more. Season 3 of THE CORONER: I SPEAK FOR THE DEAD premiered on Thursday, October 4, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT on Investigation Discovery. In the season opener, "Hand in Glove," when popular jockey Juan Vives is found stabbed to death in the woods just days before Christmas, Dauphin County Coroner Graham Hetrick and investigators must explore the racing circuit to determine if the killer was a jealous rival...or a dark horse.
On Friday, December 7, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT, Investigation Discovery premiered the Season 3 finale of THE CORONER: I SPEAK FOR THE DEAD. In the season ender, "He'll Open the Door," when the body of nursing student Hitender Thakur is found shot to death behind the counter of the Harrisburg, PA convenience store where he works, it's up to Coroner Graham Hetrick to help police hunt a killer who has disappeared without a trace.
