Episode 21: A Clutch of Witnesses

While standing outside of a motorcycle gang’s clubhouse, two witnesses watched in horror as a truck intentionally ran over an unconscious man. The truck was finally located, but the forensics lab could not find a single speck of evidence in it. And the body didn’t turn up either. Originally aired as Season 7, Episode 11.


Episode 22: A Leg to Stand On

When a severed leg is found in a dumpster, investigators are faced with the challenge of identifying the victim. Using anthropology, toxicology and DNA testing, police are able to determine who the victim was and follow the trail of evidence to his killer. Originally aired as Season 7, Episode 14.


Episode 23: Partners in Crime

How Illinois scientists solved a 1992 murder case involving cremation. It takes a long time and a very hot fire to cremate a human body, and thus destroy all evidence of foul play. But the coroner who performed the autopsy on the badly burned body of Charles “Jack” Lynch found telltale clues. Not only had the victim been burned, he’d also been stabbed — 24 times, with two different knives. Police knew that a person, acting alone, would probably use only one weapon. So investigators were on the lookout for a couple of killers.

Episode 24: Mortal Sins / Sip of Sins

A look back at a trio of unsolved murders that occurred in Wichita Falls, Texas during the 1980s, details how a fourth murder from the same time period provided the police with more than they realized. John Little, an investigator for the DA’s office, picked up the cold cases years later. He soon connected the fourth crime’s confessed killer, Faryion Wardrip, to the other murders.

A pastor’s wife appears to have committed suicide by taking an overdose of sleeping pills. But as the investigation progresses, detectives discover incriminating computer files and learn that the pastor had been having an affair.

A woman disappeared along a California highway in 1991; three years later, the case was solved when a man’s refrigerated truck was looked upon with suspicion.


Episode 27: Cold Storage

Tracy Jo Shine disappeared in 1987, but the investigation went cold until 2000, when a cold case squad learned that the woman’s ex-boyfriend Michael Neal had bragged about killing her.


Episode 28: Scout’s Honor

In Pennsylvania 1984, a passer-by finds the torso of a woman in a cardboard box. Investigators rely on insect activity analysis by a forensic entomologist to determine when the murder victim was killed. She remained unknown until a year later, when her sister called to report her missing. Eventually she was identified as Edna M. Posey, a local prostitute. Investigators then looked into Donald Ruby, whom Edna had asked to watch her 11-year-old son Randy. Investigators theorized that Donald Ruby had grown fond of Randy and killed Edna to keep her from taking her son back. Donald Ruby was convicted of her murder, but would further forensic entomology change the outcome?
