It was classic “overkill.” The woman floating in the harbor had been stabbed more than 50 times. Her ex-husband and daughter are missing, and investigators turn to forensic science to determine if they’re searching for victims… or perpetrators.
The woman was sexually assaulted, stabbed, and left for dead. She survived and provided a description of her attacker. When someone who fit the description came forward, police were sure they had their man… until the DNA evidence proved them wrong.
As she left choir practice, the woman was gunned down in the church parking lot. Her husband became the prime suspect â€“ particularly when police learned he found out just a month earlier that his wife had been cheating on him for three years.
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.
The victim has been stabbed more than thirty times, and the crime scene is awash with blood. Near her head, police discover a distinctive button. If they can find the owner of the shirt the button came from, they’ll also find the killer.
The young husband is hailed as a hero when he rescues his wife and son from their burning home. A month later, his wife is beaten to death. A cut window screen points to an intruder, but the lack of evidence compels police to look beyond the obvious.
It appeared the victim had accidentally fallen and hit her head at the bottom of the stairs. But the odd position of her shoes and the absence of blood spatter led police to suspect the scene had been staged… and Luminol proved they were right.
