Destination Truth: Thursday, April 7 at 8pm ET/PT
Josh Gates and his team travel to a coal mining town on an island in northern Japan, where thousands of miners died while working under sub-standard conditions. Some were prisoners of war who were worked to death, while others were buried alive. In the forty years since these mines were closed, nearby residents have reported strange paranormal activity leading them to think the area is haunted. Then, Josh and the team visit Tanzania, where a mysterious beast is said to be roaming through the flat lands of the Serengeti. Known as the Mngwa ("ming-wah"), this saber-toothed feline is reported to be larger than a lion, measuring a frightening eight feet long and weighing more than four hundred pounds. Will Josh get to the bottom of these two mysteries?

Psychic abilities often cross generations of the same family or are shared by siblings. However, for Caprice, mother to 17-year-old Jordi, her mild psychic experiences haven't been much use in helping Jordi deal with the intense spirit activity that bombards her. For sisters, Peyton and Riley, it's a struggle to cope with the spirits they see and hear daily. Their mother Angela shut down her psychic abilities as a child, but now wants to tap into her abilities again in order to be able to help her daughters. Chip & Edy work with these young psychics and their mothers to give them all tools to support each other's experiences.
