María Elena Salinas Searches For 'The Real Story' Behind High-Profile Crimes

It's all part of the Univision anchor's new English-language show.

Emmy-winning journalist María Elena Salinas is searching for answers in her new TV series. 

The Univision anchor is reexamining old headline-making crimes to offer new perspectives and updates in her new show, “The Real Story with María Elena Salinas.”

In the first episode of the series, which premieres Monday at 10 p.m. on Investigation Discovery, Salinas delves into the wrongful conviction of Martin Tankleff. In 1988, 17-year-old Tankleff found both of his parents murdered. He was later convicted for their deaths and sentenced to 50 years-to-life. 

In 2008, that decision was overturned because of new evidence and Tankleff was set free. Salinas spoke to Tankleff and others involved in the case decades after the crime. 

During the first season of the show, Salinas also plans to reinvestigate other high-profile crimes like the Deltona Massacre and the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando.
