IMDB (8.8)

Episode 1: Dessert Served Cold

In 1991, Massachusetts emergency personnel are called to the home of Richard Alfredo, who was slumped over dead of an apparent heart attack. No one thought foul play was a possibility until police looked into odd behavior of his girlfriend Christina Martin in the days before his death. Controversy surrounded the case for almost a decade, which pitted competing teams of toxicologists against each other — one claiming the death was natural and the other saying it was cold-blooded murder.



Episode 2: The Music Case

In this classic episode of Forensic Files, the longest running true crime series in television history, the sense of security in Waseca, Minnesota shatters when 12-year-old Cally Jo Larson is found dead in her home. Despite an exhaustive investigation, only a string of burglaries, which lead police to a cache of stolen goods, brings a killer to justice.


Episode 3: Paintball

In 1962, the people of the small town of Hanford, California lost their sense of peace when one of their own, 15 year-old Marlene Miller, was murdered. It would take 24 years and countless retrials before forensic scientists discovered the microscopic evidence that brought the killer to justice.


Episode 4: Sign Here

A mother of two disappears after a shopping trip. Her body is found a month later. Witnesses saw the victim being forced into a car by an unknown person. Police learn that the car had been rented, but the signature on the rental agreement does not match that of their number one suspect. A forensic handwriting expert points to the murderer.


Episode 5: Shadow of a Doubt

The day before she was scheduled to testify against the man accused of robbing her, a woman is shot to death in her store. Police ask a physics professor to examine the would-be defendant’s alibi: a time-stamped videotape.

Episode 6: Tourist Trap

In 1993, thieves were robbing and killing tourists in Florida, making worldwide headlines. One victim fought back, suffering a bite mark that became key evidence against a determined suspect – who ran into a even more determined detective.


Episode 7: Once Bitten

Due to a bite mark, an Arizona man is convicted and sentenced to death for the 1991 murder of a bartender. However, he fights to prove his innocence.


Episode 8: All Wet

A woman’s death in Pennsylvania triggers a homicide investigation into another woman’s death in North Carolina. The similarities in the two cases are shocking, and medical examiners must determine if the suspect’s story about accidental drowning is all wet.

Episode 9: Shot of Vengeance

A nurse has a variety of flu-like symptoms. None of her doctors are able to find the cause, until she visits the gynecologist for a routine check-up. Then she learns it’s something way worse than the flu. She is HIV-positive. Science determines not only how she had been infected, but also by whom. They will discover that it wasn’t an accident.


Episode 10: Dinner and a Movie

Time of death becomes pivotal when a pregnant woman is found murdered in her Connecticut home. The couple’s adventurous sex life comes into play, and a striking similarity between the woman’s death and an HBO movie gives forensic examiners the clues they need to thaw out the alibi of a cold-blooded killer.
