Trail of a Killer
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.

Crimes of Passion
Nothing is off limits when Forensic Files needs to tackle a crime of passion.
The victim was brutally murdered. Police learn her fiancé was having affairs with other women, and he becomes the prime suspect… until a man comes forward who not only believes he owns the murder weapon, he also knows who used it.
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 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 young college student is found dead in her apartment. There are no obvious signs of foul play, but skin cells under her fingernails yield DNA of an unknown male suspect, and petechial hemorrhages in her eyes prove this is a homicide.
