What happens when a deadly crime takes place and law enforcement puts all of its scientific resources into action? Can forensic science really solve a murder?
This program follows scientists through a dramatized investigation, from the discovery of the crime scene through various stages of evidence analysis to the presentation of findings in court.
Instead of Hollywood hype, viewers are given a realistic portrayal of the forensic science process, including:
- field photography
- evidence recording
- victim identification
- DNA profiling
- fingerprint readings (complete with an explanation of print types and ridge analysis)
- and much more
