Beauty pageants are the ultimate fairytale for many young women, but luscious lips and curvaceous hips spell out danger for the pageant darlings featured on Investigation Discovery's all-new series Beauty Queen Murders. They were all so young, so beautiful, and held so much promise - and they were all killed before their time in the spotlight was up. Because while their perfectly made-up eyes were fixed on winning a title, they caught the attention of not only the judges but a murderer waiting in the wings.
"Beauty Queen Murders reveals the not-so-pretty side of the typical pageant queen fantasy," said Henry Schleiff, Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, and Military Channel. "For these American sweethearts, winning a sash and crown may have empowered them to reach for the stars, but it couldn't defend them against the fatal lure of a dangerous admirer."
