Episode 1

Sharper Image

In this classic episode of Forensic Files, the longest running true crime series in television history, a young girl is found dead, and police quickly arrest the most likely suspect.
Episode 2

Insulated Evidence

It's usually simple to figure out how a criminal entered the crime scene. But in this case, it was far from clear. It seemed like the killer vanished into thin air...and perhaps he really did.
Episode 4

Wheel of Misfortune

Security cameras in a casino tracked a young woman’s movements until shortly before she disappeared. She was never seen again, but through the evidence she left behind, she was able to tell investigators what happened to her and who was responsible.
Episode 7

The Day the Music Died

Seattle police had no suspects in the violent murder of a popular rock singer. More than a decade would pass before the evidence collected by an extraordinarily prescient medical examiner could be used by forensic scientists to identify the killer.
Episode 8

Sole Survivor

A Michigan State University grad student disappeared and was presumed dead. With the help of a professor of geological sciences, police hoped to get the “dirt” on her killer.
Episode 10

Catch 22

A woman was ambushed in her driveway and shot to death. During their investigation, police learned that a co-worker half her age was in love with her, and that she’d spurned his advances.
Episode 11

A Cinderella Story

The victim had been sexually assaulted and stabbed to death on the beach, just ten yards from the hotel where she was staying. A pair of men’s tennis shoes was discovered near her body.
Episode 13

Pressed for Crime

A brutally violent murder, many suspects, and conflicting evidence but the forensics were clear on one thing: The killer knew his victim. And that alone provided investigators with a head start.
Episode 14

Finger Pane

A serial killer is on the loose and police have to find him before he strikes again. Their most promising lead is an unusual one: a bloody fingerprint on the body of one of the victims.
Episode 15

Good As Gold

On Halloween night 2004, Adriane Insogna and Leslie Mazzara were brutally murdered in their Napa, California home. The killer was not seen by their downstairs roommate, but he left his DNA behind in some cigarette butts.
Episode 19

Shattered Innocence

The murderer probably hoped to cover his tracks by staging the crime scene. But police saw through the attempt almost immediately, and they turned to forensic science to discover what really happened that night.
Episode 20

Jean Pool

In 1984, the body of college co-ed Laura Salmon was found on a Georgia farm, covered with her own denim jeans as well as the jeans of the murderer. Investigators had plenty of suspects, including her ex-boyfriend, but no solid evidence linking any of them
Episode 21

Traffic Violations

The body of an attractive young woman was found a mile from her abandoned car. Police were extremely concerned when they realized the victim had come to them for protection just two weeks earlier, after a road rage incident.
Episode 23

Brotherly Love

A man devotes his life to law enforcement after his sister is murdered.
Episode 23

Disrobed

The crime scene was especially violent: A husband and wife had been shot to death in their bedroom. At first, investigators thought their teenage daughter was lucky to have survived.
Episode 26

Printed Proof

The murders of two gay activists led investigators to believe they were victims of a hate-crime. But the police uncover the real motive behind the murders, and it wasn't hate. A tip and a match to prints at the scene shed light on the killer.
Episode 27

In the Bag

A killer places all the incriminating evidence to the murder in a plastic bag, hoping it will float down the river.
Episode 28

About Face

A human skeleton was found in the North Carolina marshlands and, when investigators learned she'd been dead for several months, they knew it would be difficult to find out who she was, much less who killed her.
Episode 30

Guarded Secrets

A security guard disappeared from his post without a trace; his remains were found a year later in an isolated camp site. More than 10 years would pass before a phone call breathed life into the cold case.
Episode 31

Smoking Out a Killer

For years, a brutal series of rapes and murders of college girls shocked a local campus. Police feared a serial killer was on the loose and they needed to determine what – or who – these women had in common.
