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.
A bullet-riddled car, a missing driver, and no witnesses. Was this an ambush or a random attack? Had the victim been abducted or was she dead? The answers lay in a unique clue, so tiny it was measured in millionths of a meter.
The bodies of three women were found floating in Tampa Bay. The water washed away any evidence, but police hoped a handwritten note found in the victims’ car would lead to the killer – so they posted huge copies of the note on five highway billboards.
A serial bomber was on the loose in Illinois. Two churches had been bombed and one person was killed. Investigators had to stop the perpetrator before he struck again… and they hoped to find him by following a thin copper wire.
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.
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 convenience store safe was empty and the clerk, missing. Hours later, her bound, half-naked body was discovered in nearby woods. Almost two decades would pass before advances in forensic science gave police the proof they needed to convict a killer.
The woman hadn’t shown up for work in two days, and her boss reported her missing. When her body was found, the evidence pointed to suspects who claimed they had nothing to do with the crime. The victim, herself, would help police prove they were lying.
