Oxygen’s Rod Aissa Talks ‘Criminal Confessions’ and the Network’s Transition to ‘Full Time True Crime’

When Emily Lambert was reported missing by Robert Early, investigators were alerted to a crime that might have escaped immediate attention had he not called. Was Early a concerned boyfriend? Or, was there much more to him than met the eye? While investigators questioned him and as he went from interviewee to prime suspect, Lambert’s 2 young daughters waited for word on the whereabouts of their mom. Emily Lambert’s parents immediately made the 8-hour drive to New Mexico, never imagining they would eventually be the ones to raise the two girls. Oxygen’s new series Criminal Confessions, which debuts Sunday, starts with an episode about Emily Lambert’s case. It examines the process by which police investigators question potential subjects, in a manner that elicits a confession deemed admissible in a courtroom.

Maura Murray Missing: Maggie Freleng Talks Oxygen Series – People

Investigative journalist Maggie Freleng, an ardent true crime fan, has found herself in the middle of a true crime story of her own — gripped by a simple, seemingly unanswerable question: What happened to Maura Murray?

Murray, like Freleng, attended the University of Massachusetts, though years apart. Murray disappeared without a trace while she was still a student, when she packed up her things at the Amherst campus and drove north to New Hampshire.

Much remains unclear about what happened after Murray left school, though it appears she vanished near a snowbank in New Hampshire where her car crashed on Feb. 9, 2004.

In the intervening years, the mystery of her going missing has spread throughout the Internet, inspiring intense rumor and conspiracy, as well as fact-based reporting from reporters.

Freleng, one such example of the latter, spent months in the area digging into the case and the theories around it. (She first
