The truck fell off of the hydraulic jack, crushed the man working beneath it, and sparked a fire… or so it seemed. Investigators turned to forensic science to determine if they were dealing with a tragic accident or a carefully orchestrated murder.
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.
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.
The man suffered a slow, agonizing death over a period of days. His wife maintained he killed himself but police were skeptical… especially when they learned her first husband died when he was only 38-years-old and she refused to consent to an autopsy.
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 couple spent Memorial Day weekend at the beach and then they simply vanished. A week later, police got an unexpected lead from a robbery in progress, and the evidence they found helped them to solve a crime of unparalleled brutality and violence.
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.
A teenager goes missing, and her body is discovered 17 days later at the bottom of an isolated ravine. Police find a shell casing, a filter torn from a cigarette and a muddy footprint on the victim’s shirt which they hope will lead to the killer.
The woman was missing for a month. Police find her car but no evidence of foul play… only a fingerprint and a set of keys. There’s a code on one of they keys, which they hope will unlock not only a door, but also the mystery of her disappearance.
