Even though their daughter had run away before, she'd always come back. Her parents were sure this time would be no different... but they were wrong. Workers discovered the teen's half-naked body on the other side of the road; her throat had been slit.

Quite A Spectacle

12/26/2019

It was one of the most unusual cases in forensic history. Investigators had to find a way to solve a murder case with evidence which consisted of a squashed tomato found at the crime scene, and tiny, pinpoint reflections of light in a photograph. Would it be enough to catch a killer? via Knit

Silk Stalkings

12/23/2019

More

All Wet

Smoking Out A Killer

12/5/2019
More
A college senior was found raped and murdered near an unpaved footpath used by students to walk from one side of campus to the other.

Leads dried up and the case went cold... until a suspect arrested for drug possession offered police a deal, and told a bizarre tale of an exotic dancer who listened to voices in her head. via Knit

Duration:00:25:00

Smoke In Your Eyes

11/21/2019
More
The bodies of two women are found in the ashes of a fire, which appeared to have been set deliberately. Evidence found leads investigators to a suspect, but it would take a blood stain no bigger than the head of a pin to convict him. via Knit

Flower Power

11/18/2019
More
