Arson used to be the ideal way for a crook to make evidence go up in smoke. Not anymore. Today, fire investigators are using new techniques and modern science to catch deadly arsonists red-handed. Go back to one of the biggest turning points in fire investigation: a 1990 Jacksonville, Florida fire that left a family dead and the only adult survivor accused of murder.

A spy uncovering government secrets from home. A serial killer hunting female escorts online. Two dangerous criminals, both of whom played a vital role in the evolution of digital forensics. We track two investigations, decades apart, detailing how cyber sleuthing was first used to snare a West German hacker in 1986, and how, years later, technical advances helped the Boston Police capture the Craigslist Killer.

They've been called the "voodoo police" by some detectives, but criminal profilers are often the law's only hope of putting killers behind bars. Then witness two landmark cases: the hunt for the Mad Bomber of New York, when profiling got its trial run, and a 1982 investigation in which traditional methods failed, but psychological insights brought down one of the deadliest serial killers in history.

For over 50 years, crime investigators have been playing a grisly game of connect the dots, linking blood spatter at violent crime scenes to ruthless killers. Join two investigations and see how the ever-evolving forensic science of bloodstain pattern analysis helped investigators solve both the 1954 murder of the wife of a prominent doctor and the death of a Las Vegas playboy 40 years later.

Hair, skin cells, fibers, residue, and specs of dust. Sherlock Holmes and his magnifying glass made the analysis of trace evidence famous, but French scientist Edmond Locard made it a movement. Discover how his bold theories on using microscopic evidence to solve crimes helped crack a high profile murder case in 1912. Then travel forward nearly 80 years to discover the trace evidence that was the only hope of catching California's notorious "I-5 Strangler."

When a death looks suspicious, forensic pathologists take a closer look. By thoroughly examining a corpse, they can determine the cause of death and whether or not a crime has taken place. See how this forensic science first gained notoriety 100 years ago in England, when a pathologist, though autopsies and wildly unconventional research methods, linked one man to two suspicious honeymoon deaths.

Discover how a simple slat of wood helped catch the man who killed "The Eaglet."
Over the last 150 years, forensic science has made enormous leaps, helping detectives catch and convict more criminals than ever before. Today, state-of-the- art techniques and technology have helped investigators turn blood spatters, skin cells, e-mails,… View More
