The two-hour sixth season premiere episode of PEOPLE MAGAZINE INVESTIGATES uncovers the horrific triple murder and double kidnapping of the Groene family that rattles an idyllic lake front community in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. Investigators arrive at the Wolf Lodge residence, where mother Brenda Groene, her boyfriend Mark McKenzie and son Slade Groene are discovered bound and bludgeoned within the home – her youngest children, Shasta and Dylan Groene, missing from the scene.

Across two mind bending hours, viewers will get a first-hand look as investigators uncover every horrifying detail of Shasta’s harrowing escape and rescue and her tireless fight to stay alive.
