"Dark Minds" (TV show) on Investigation Discovery transports the most dangerous of all criminals right into your own home. In the series, non-fiction crime author M. William Phelps and criminal profiler John Kelly revisit unsolved homicides believed to be the work of serial killers. The twist? They have an insider that intimately understands the disturbed mind of a murderer — because he is one, currently serving multiple life sentences in a maximum security prison.

With a new voice on the other end of the line in Season 2, known only to audiences as "Raven," this unique source offers his "expert" opinion to profile the killers whose victims deserve justice and whose families deserve answers. Raven's voice and identity are disguised as he uses his own personal experience to formulate theories about the motives and practices of each murderer, providing unorthodox yet invaluable information that Phelps and Kelly make sense of in an effort to provide law enforcement with critical leads.

For Phelps, it's personal. His sister-in-law, five months pregnant, was murdered and her case was never solved, which helps fuel his passion for answers. He knows all too well the personal effects of having a loved one who was murdered, and relates to the grieving families who are out there still looking for closure. Through his work with "Dark Minds," Phelps has developed a necessary connection to Raven — a relationship that haunts him on a daily basis.

"The emotional toll is overwhelming. It makes my skin crawl, especially listening as Raven describes the enjoyment he got from taking a human life," said M. William Phelps . "But it's ultimately worth it, because victims deserve justice and the families deserve answers — and with 'Dark Minds,' the potential is there for us to help with both."

In all of the cases featured in this series, the killers are still out there. "Dark Minds" brings fresh eyes to unsolved serial killer cases using the combined instincts of three unique perspectives.

"Dark Minds" is produced by Beyond Productions for Investigation Discovery. For Beyond Productions, John Luscombe is executive producer and Andrew Farrell is showrunner. For Investigation Discovery, Eugenie Vink is executive producer, Sara Kozak is vice president of production and Henry Schleiff is president.
