Plot Synopsis

Each one-hour episode of MURDER BY NUMBERS begins with the discovery of a body and the onset of an intense investigation. After following the clues, investigators quickly focus on a very likely suspect. But just as the viewer expects to relax and ease into the standard procedure of a true-crime investigation through the eyes of detectives, the program plunges into yet another chilling and suspenseful scene where a second body is discovered. This shocking revelation not only eliminates the original suspect, it sends the investigation on a harrowing journey into the depths of pure criminal evil. Each 60-minute episode re-creates a different criminal investigation, including the series opener, "Count the Bodies," which focuses on a pair of murders linked by a mysterious note, puzzling police as they scramble to stop a budding serial killer. What they don't realize is the murderer has a target in mind and nothing, not even a growing body count, will stand in his way.
On Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, Investigation Discovery premiered the season finale of MURDER BY NUMBERS. In the season ender, "Run from the Devil," when the body of a missing college student is found hidden in the woods along the Amherst, New York bike path, locals realize that the predator that's been stalking women in the area for years has escalated from rapist to killer.
