The Deadliest Decade

The Deadliest Decade

It’s the great age of big money, big attitude, and big hair. But there’s a dark side to the 1980’s. America is consumed by greed and raw ambition – along with its biggest crime wave ever.

They say money is the root of all evil… and the 80’s had plenty of both.

Now, Investigation Discovery transports viewers on a bittersweet journey to a period that’s as rich with nostalgia as it’s fraught with violence. As investigators struggle to clinch seemingly unsolvable criminal mysteries, their revelations shed a harsh light on the times.

There’s no better way to define an era than through the crimes that mark it. And there’s no era more scarred by murder than The 1980s: the Deadliest Decade.
