The New Detectives: Case Studies in Forensic Science (TV Series 1996–2005) Poster

Episode List



17 Apr. 2001
Cold Blooded
Time of death is an important consideration in a murder investigation but when a killer freezes, burns or even grinds his victim, even the most expert medical examiner would be at a loss about how to calculate a time frame. Forensics has its own techniques to solving these grisly crimes.

Invisible Death
Poison is an almost invisible form of death and is often interpreted as a heart attack or underlying health issue. But when foul play is suspected, toxicologists must look for hidden clues in blood and tissue to bring these murders to light.
22 May 2001
Dead in the Water
Drowning deaths often look like accidents and over time water can destroy the few clues the killer may have left behind. Investigators must turn to forensic science to solve homicides in which the victims were found in bodies of water.
18 Sep. 2001
For homicide investigators, it's a race against time when they track their deadliest foe: a serial killer who murders to feel alive.
25 Sep. 2001
Deadly Intentions
Murder victims are often lured to their death by someone they trust, someone with "Deadly Intentions." Examples: a responder to a newspaper ad in Virginia; a "girl" that a Texas Aggie student met in an Internet chat room; and a California family member with an ulterior motive.
28 Aug. 2001
Deadly Aim
When a killer turns a gun on a victim, ballistic analysis is key to cracking the case. Each shot fired leaves behind its own clues, allowing scientists to target murderers with deadly aim.
18 Dec. 2001
Deadly Smile
Investigators rely on forensic odontology - the examination of dental evidence - to identify a body from a single tooth and to catch two ruthless killers from their bite marks.
Military Justice
Examining crimes committed by military personnel, including the case of a Marine Corps sergeant who reported his wife missing and found himself charged with murder; and a sailor killed with his own gun.
