What is Criminal Confessions about?

Every investigator also has his/her own strategies involved in an investigation to ultimately reveal the truth behind a crime. ‘Criminal Confessions’ is a series that delves into the psychological showdown that is taking place inside an actual police interrogation room to dissect the happenings in order to yield a confession.
Every episode of about an hour gives the viewers a complete idea of a real homicide case, including the crime scene, the questioning of suspects, and the ultimate confession. Every episode ends with a shocking revelation of what actually happens after the interrogating officer breaks the suspect.
