The cast of Dateline

Season 32 of the newsmagazine has already brought an in-depth look at some of the most disturbing crimes. The "Sound and Fury" episode focuses on a 30-year-old mom who was found brutally murdered in her Atlanta home with her children in the residence. Tiffany Jackson Pugh was the wife of a popular Atlanta DJ, known by many in the vibrant hip-hop scene. Her death had some eerie similarities to the killing of another DJ, who was gunned down in front of his home just 10 months earlier, leaving many to wonder whether someone was targeting the influential music scene.

It would take decades, genetic genealogy and plenty of “old-fashioned detective work” to solve the savage killings of two Canadian women, Erin Gilmour and Susan Tice, who are featured in Dateline's "Evil Walked Through the Door." Forty years after the brutal crimes, the surprising suspect in the case would offer a jaw-dropping confession that finally brought the victims’ loved ones a measure of justice in the haunting case. 

Joy Hibbs featured on Dateline episode "Justice For Joy"

And a son’s unrelenting pursuit of his mother’s killer was explored in the "Justice for Joy" episode. Joy Hibbs was found dead in her burning home in 1991 — but investigators would learn that she was killed before the fire was ever set. Her son David, who was just a boy at the time of the murder, remembers returning home to find “flames” when he opened the back door of his Pennsylvania home. After decades without any answers and David’s continued efforts to find justice for his mom, the revelation of a “shocking secret” would help investigators solve the difficult case. 

These cases and others are all available to stream now on Peacock.
