Fourteen-year-old Tristan Dilley seemed to have everything to look forward to.
The vivacious teen was a freshman at Silsbee High School in Silsbee, Texas, and a valued member of their cheerleading squad. She participated in the school’s first homecoming pep rally late last month and, on Saturday night, attended a school dance and sleepover at a friend’s house.
But on Sunday, authorities say, Tristan’s 13-year-old brother discovered her dead in her second-floor bedroom at her mother’s home in Buna, Texas. She had been shot twice in the head with a .22-caliber magnum revolver two days before her 15th birthday.
Her brother found her body, clothed, on top of the bed. She wasn’t facing her killer when she died.
“She never saw it coming,” Jasper County, Texas, Sheriff’s Lt. Ryan Cunningham tells PEOPLE. “You could tell from the scene there was not a struggle or

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Next week is a week of high-profile series premieres, none bigger than the launch of “Star Trek: Discovery.” Will this new series be as enterprising and entertaining as the best of the many “Trek” shows and movies that have preceded it?
Chart a course for WOIO Channel 19 at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 24, to see if this new starship can get up to warp speed. A CBS prequel to the original NBC series, “Star Trek: Discovery” is set 10 years before the first show (or 90 years after “Star Trek: Enterprise”).
CBS decided to follow the same course charted by Showtime for this summer’s return of “Twin Peaks.” That means not making episodes available to critics for advance screening (although a star-studded, invitation-only screening was held a few days before the premiere). So “Discovery” heads for the ol’ final frontier shrouded in mystery, at least in terms of

Investigative journalist Chris Hansen has earned a reputation for digging into the most unsavory corners of true crime.
On Tuesday evening at 9 p.m. ET, the former Dateline host returns to the Investigation Discovery network with the third season of Killer Instinct with Chris Hansen, which revisits 10 killings. Hansen, a nine-time Emmy winner who also hosts Crime Watch Daily, secures interviews with key players and inspects each crime scene, offering his own perspective on the crimes.
“These stories are all so compelling, but maybe didn’t get a lot of coverage when they were going down because of other national events,” Hansen tells PEOPLE. “We’re immersing ourselves in these cases and in some instances, getting interviews with the families of the victims — and this is their first time speaking about the murders.”
The show features interview footage interspersed with dramatic recreations of the killings.
