Episode 11: Photo Finish

In 1995, California model Linda Sobek goes missing. A park employee discovers photographs and some vital pieces of information in a dumpster, which eventually led investigators to professional photographer Charles Rathbun. Rathbun claims Sobek died during a consensual sexual encounter gone wrong, but Sobek’s corpse and some high tech digital imagery tell a more sinister story.



Episode 12: Whodunit

An evening out at a Maryland murder mystery theatre performance turns into a real life whodunit when the badly burned body of Stephen Hricko is found in his hotel room after a fire. Lies, greed and medical trickery can’t match the skills of forensic scientists, who pull the curtain down on the real killer.


Episode 13: Horse Play

Michigan resident Shannon Mohr died tragically in what was reported by her new husband, David Davis, as a horseback riding accident. Upon deeper investigation, police found a thread of lies and a proficiency with pharmaceuticals in Davis’ background that provided a different explanation for Shannon’s accidental death.


Episode 14: Treads and Threads

For 15 months, a serial killer was strangling prostitutes in Florida, then taunting police by leaving the bodies in plain sight. The only clues were a tire impression and some threads. By the time scientists identify the source of these treads and the threads, police discover the killer James Randall was right under their noses the entire time.


Episode 15: Killer’s ‘Cattle’ Log

When police in the Great Plains were called to retrieve a dead body, they did a background check on the victim. The trail guided them into a strange thread of homeless drifters, cattle auctions and bad checks – all fronted by an elderly couple with a penchant for money and murder.


Episode 16: Skin of Her Teeth

In 1994, a human skull found in an Ohio pond uncovers a ghastly crime. Markings on the skull indicate that the victim had been stabbed many times and that the teeth had been removed with needle-nose pliers in an attempt to keep the victim’s identity a secret. Forensic scientists use DNA matches to indentify the skull


Episode 17: Line of Fire

When a fundamentalist group starts attacking and robbing banks in the Pacific Northwest, authorities know immediately that they are dealing with experienced criminals. A tip leads them to the alleged perpetrators and the evidence found at their homes is extensive. But in court, this wealth of evidence must withstand a well-funded defense.


Episode 18: Bad Blood

Forensic Files examines the case of Dr. John Schneeberger who raped one of his patients and his own step-daughter. Initially, he manages to avoid suspicious by beating a DNA test. At the trial he reveals that he implanted a plastic tube containing another person’s blood in order to beat the test.


Episode 19: Pure Evil

Creating a “profile” of a serial killer is part science and part intuition. The science involves studying criminals who have committed similar crimes, to see what characteristics they have in common. In a search for the killer of two teenagers in Texas, a behavioral profile led to a possible suspect – and hard science proved the profile was correct


Episode 20: Root of All Evil

The wife of prominent Illinois farmer Fred Grabbe disappeared from her farm without a trace. For three years, investigators searched in vain for any trace of her. Eventually, Fred Grabbe’s former lover came forward with a fascinating tale filled with rage, murder, mutilation and cremation, but there seemed to be no way to test the validity of her story.
