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.
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.
The gunman opened fire as the family of four entered their home, killing two and wounding the others. When police pieced together the clues, they discovered an unlikely suspect and a carefully orchestrated plot.
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 woman in the back of the truck was flailing her arms, screaming. They thought she was doing something dangerous for the fun of it. But when they found a jacket near a pool of blood, they knew what they’d seen wasn’t a joy ride; it was an abduction.
Four young adults are brutally murdered in an upscale neighborhood, and the crime scene yields little evidence. Descriptions of two people seen walking nearby are used to create composite drawings, which become a key element in solving the crime.
A surgeon is stabbed to death, and the most likely suspect is seen in a restaurant at the time of the murder. A cryptic conversation leads police to believe that, while the suspect may not have wielded the knife, he could have hired the man who did.
