(WSIL) -- A documentary focusing on the life and death of Pravin Varughese, who died in Carbondale in 2014, will stream exclusively on Discovery+.

Varughese, an Indian American student at Southern Illinois University, went to a house party in Carbondale and later died.

It took investigators 5 days to discover his body, but the investigation into his death took years.

The two-hour True Crime special, "Who Killed my Son?" will focus on the case and the family's quest for justice with interviews from Varughese's mother, law enforcement, attorneys and advocates.

It will be streamed exclusively on Discovery+ starting March 23, 2021.

“The mystery behind this young man’s death is just too much for any mother to bear. When the criminal justice system failed to get answers, she began an epic fight for justice, marshalling a community of supporters to hold officials accountable. What they discovered was nothing less than shocking,” says executive producer Soledad O’Brien.
