A woman is murdered on a jogging trail in the middle of the day. The leads from cell phone records and search dogs go nowhere. Nine days later, a witness tells police about a chance encounter, and cigarette butts which may contain the killer’s DNA.
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.
The “Last Call Killer” targeted men in gay bars who drank heavily. After killing and dismembering them, he carefully washed away the evidence. He eluded capture for almost ten years, until new technology revealed fingerprints no one knew were there.
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.
A woman goes missing in the midst of a contentious divorce. Friends believe her estranged husband is responsible, while he maintains she simply left without telling anyone. But his words and actions indicate he knows she’s never coming back.
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 had been stabbed more than a hundred times; her bedroom was blood-soaked. While her body was positioned in a suggestive way, she hadn’t been sexually assaulted. Was this a sex crime, or the random act of a man with an intense hatred of women?
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.
