New Unsolved Mysteries episodes
Episode 1: “Mystery at Mile Marker 45” — When 18-year-old Tiffany Valiante was hit by a train on a dark summer night, authorities quickly labeled her death a suicide. However, the family’s unanswered questions and missing evidence point to a more sinister theory.
Episode 2: “Something in the Sky” — On March 18, 1994, hundreds of people saw strange lights in the sky above Lake Michigan. Were they an unexplained natural phenomenon or crafts from another world?
Episode 3: “Body in Bags” — During the month of October 2018, David Carter’s dismembered body was found in three separate bags along Interstate 75 in Ohio.

Episode 4: “Death in a Vegas Motel” — “Buffalo” Jim Barrier, a wrestling promoter once voted “Las Vegas’ Most Colorful Character,” was found dead in a motel room in 2008. At the time, Barrier was embroiled in a bitter feud and had made some powerful enemies. How did Buffalo Jim die?
Episode 5: “Paranormal Rangers” — For 10 years, two Navajo Rangers were tasked with investigating paranormal activity on the Navajo Nation, ranging from UFOs to skinwalkers to Bigfoot. Like the real-life X-Files, the Rangers collected evidence and interviewed witnesses about the eerie sightings. What evidence did they find?
Episode 6: “What Happened to Josh?” — Josh Guimond vanished without a trace after attending a party on the campus of St. John’s University in 2003. As police investigated his disappearance, they found a web of secrets, but no sign of the popular 20-year-old. What happened to Josh?

It was determined that Pat was killed by a shotgun blast to the head, but his manner of death was ruled “undetermined.” Was Pat’s death a suicide? Or was he murdered?
Episode 8: “The Ghost in Apartment 14” — Lights flickering, doors slamming and vivid nightmares. A single mother and her young child experience disturbing paranormal activity in their new home.
