Two suspects living in the same apartment are linked to a murder by a gun and a pair of bloodstained boots, items that belonged to the one who claims he'd never even met the victim.

After a street fight takes the life of a national wrestling champion, police have to determine if he was killed in cold blood or in self-defense. A jury determines it was murder and sentences the accused to a minimum of twenty years in prison. Six years later, he is granted another trial and a forensic animator offers a different explanation for the most damning piece of evidence.
A 19-year-old girl was found dead in her car, with the scene staged to make murder appear to be suicide.

A forensic pathologist applies a ground-breaking technique to discover the truth.
The woman in the back of the truck was flailing her arms, screaming. They thought she was doing something dangerous for the fun of it. But when they find a jacket near a pool of blood, they realize what they'd seen wasn't a joy ride. It was an abduction.
After he got into the home, an assailant used an axe to kill the husband and critically injure his wife. Nothing was taken, so this wasn't a robbery. A DNA profile from skin cells collected hundreds of miles away will reveal the killer's identity and his motive for murder.
