For the first time on network television, Dateline will air private journals, home videos and emails that shed new light on what really happened to Susan, as well as rarely-seen video of Susan’s son speaking with a detective the day after she went missing.

Reported by Keith Morrison, the broadcast also features new interviews with key players in the case, including Josh's sister Jennifer Graves, Susan’s dad Chuck Cox, and lead detective Ellis Maxwell. Haunted takes a comprehensive look at the years-long investigation, including accusations that Josh’s father, Steve, harassed Susan, which he has denied.
