Ep. 1/5 -

Filmed with Essex Police, this brand new series follows murder investigations in real time, following every decision and every lead, minute by minute, from the critical first few days right through to arrest and conviction.

Across three murder cases, spanning five episodes and stripped across two weeks, Murder 24/7 will take viewers behind the blue line to the heart of the police investigation in an unprecedented level of detail.

Detectives, senior investigating officers, manhunt specialists, blood spatter analysts, dog handlers, interviewing officers, crime scene managers, phone analysts, and lawyers are just some of the specialists from the vast team of experts who must work together to solve the crime.

Gripping and dramatic, Murder 24/7 will follow the twists and turns, dead ends and breakthroughs of complex murder investigations in real time. Forensic work at the crime scene, interviews with witnesses, trawling CCTV, analysing mobile phones, executing search warrants, and hunting down suspects, no stone is left unturned in the race to catch the killer.

Episode one follows the investigation into the murder of 36 year-old Courtney Valentine-Brown, who was found stabbed in a flat in in Southend-on-Sea. The episode spans the critical first two days of the investigation, as the senior investigating officer and his team of detectives and specialists work around the clock to catch the killers.
