The Discovery Channel has announced an investigation by Frank Parlato, a developer, an investigative journalist and owner of the Niagara Falls Reporter, will be the focus of a documentary, “The Lost Women of NXIVM,” that will air on its Investigation Discovery channel.

Parlato was instrumental in exposing the Albany-based self-help group that many feel is a cult.

A spokesperson for Discovery said Parlato’s investigation will be a focus of the special.

Investigation Discovery announced that the special will premiere in December and was first announced “on the heels of the conviction of Keith Raniere for racketeering, sex trafficking and other crimes.”

Discovery’s release stated, “With layers still unraveling, this urgent and timely special explores what happened to four women who were members of NXIVM who either vanished or died in mysterious circumstances. 

“Mixed in with the official accounts of suicide or illness are contested evidence, allegations of tainted police reports, and after years of investigation, one investigator believes, murder. THE LOST WOMEN OF NXIVM takes viewers deep inside the active investigation to explore what really happened to Kristin Snyder, Gina Hutchinson and other women of NXIVM. 

“Tracking down past members, informants and eyewitnesses, many going on the record for the first time, this two-hour special takes us into new parts of the NXIVM universe and reveals a story far bigger and darker than ever suspected.

“With unique access to Frank Parlato and his more than 10-year investigation into NXIVM, layered with special testimony from a core of former members speaking on the record for the first time, this special explores how each of the four women have connections to the origins of NXIVM, taking viewers deeper into Keith Raniere’s cult than ever before.

“As the cryptic and chilling details behind NXIVM continue to surface, each revelation is more astonishing than the last,” says Henry Schleiff, group president of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. “The time has finally arrived for Keith Raniere to be brought to justice, and we at Investigation Discovery think it is also time to help amplify the stories of these women who will not be forgotten.”
