“It’s most important that we honor these victims, by keeping their memories alive, by telling their stories in a compelling way that we hope is showing something new to our audience, and highlighting the men and women who work on these cases and give it their all.”

Since 2017, Anna-Sigga has hosted Investigation Discoveries’ “True Conviction.” Now, in its third season, “True Conviction” explores the real-life stories of how homicides are solved on the street but won in the courtroom.
