Oxygen does one thing best and that is true-crime programming. Each month, the NBC Universal-owned channel presents its viewers with fresh and new content and it has continued to do so even during the pandemic.

When it comes to murder investigations, knowing the identity of the victims plays a huge part in uncovering the truth. However, across the United States, there are countless nameless murder victims whose stories are left unknown because of the lack of identity. In the United States alone, there are nearly 40,000 open cases in which the victim of a violent crime remains unidentified and loved ones are never returned to their families.

These victims are called Jane or John Doe and they become cold cases. There can be no justice for them or their families. However, Oxygen's newest docuseries, coming in January 2021, aims to give one Jane Doe victim a second look and help identify her. Read on to know more about 'The Jane Doe Murders'.
