A young college student is found dead in her apartment. There are no obvious signs of foul play, but skin cells under her fingernails yield DNA of an unknown male suspect, and petechial hemorrhages in her eyes prove this is a homicide.
Doctors don’t know why the young scientist is gravely ill. When tests finally reveal the cause, it’s too late to save him. Police hope that lab analysis of his hair, showing when attempts were made on his life and what was used, will lead to the killer.
After the college co-ed vanished, the kidnapper called and said he’d soon tell them what he wanted for her return. He never called, and she was never seen again. Ten years later, tiny metal particles would implicate the man who’d been a suspect all alone.
The victim was discovered in a landfill, stuffed into a suitcase. She resembled another woman, missing for 18 months. Sure they were dealing with a serial killer, police faced the daunting task of combing through 225,000 tons of trash to find her body.
The killer was meticulous, washing everything at the scene, including the victim’s body. The only definitive evidence was a single hair. Three years later he struck again and, this time, what he left behind would prove he committed both crimes.
A woman attends evening church services… then disappears. Eyewitnesses see her getting into a van, but their descriptions of the vehicle don’t match. Three days later her body is discovered, and the search for the driver of that van intensifies.
The victim was well liked and successful, which made the brutality of the crime hard to understand. She’d written a name on the wall, presumably that of the killer, in her own blood. But to catch the killer, police would have to read between the lines.
The investigation of an exotic dancer’s disappearance leads to an isolated site where someone has been shot and cremated. Soft tissue attached to a piece of a foot yields enough DNA for a genetic profile, and positive identification of the victim.
