Tight-Fitting Genes: A behavioral profile is helpful in a murder investigation, but it's not a road map to the killer.

I would have given this dvd a five-star rating (as a huge fan of the show) if it had included some dvd extras, but alas, it did not. This set is merely the episodes listed, no extras or any advertisements.

This set deals with historic cases, which simply means that the new methods of evidence collection used in those cases were either ground-breaking or just new ways to use old things. Many have gone on to become standards for evidence collection when needed in similar circumstances. It is fascinating to hear how the cases evolved, and to hear from the experts!

Forensic Files is an American documentary-style series which reveals how forensic science is used to solve violent crimes, mysterious accidents, and even outbreaks of illness. The show takes a "whodunit" approach, making each case a mystery to be solved. Every 22 minutes episode follows one case from initial investigation until conviction, acquittal, or some other legal resolution. Pathologists, medical examiners, police officers, detectives, prosecutors, defense attorneys, friends and families of victims or sometimes even the suspects themselves are all interviewed about their roles.

This set is about Historic cases, cases where the investigators used new forensic techniques to find the killer(s). All 12 investigations are very interesting. Here are the 12 episodes you'll find on this set:

1. Bio-Attack: The 1984 Rajneeshee bioterror attack was the food poisoning of 751 individuals in The Dalles, Oregon, United States, through the deliberate contamination of salad bars at ten local restaurants with salmonella.
2. Cats, Flies and Snapshots: The disappearance of 19-year-old Lori Auker leaves police stumped due to the poor quality of a surveillance tape. With help from NASA, however, digital imaging was employed to clean up the video; later, three hairs that belonged to her cat were found in a suspect's trunk, leading to his arrest and eventual conviction.
3. Chief Evidence: A young suburban couple was murdered during what appeared to be a drug deal gone awry. But police found no drugs in the home of the victims - and there were no traces of the victims' blood on the clothing of the suspects. The victims' dog, Chief, eventually led police to the killer.
4. Drowning Sorrows: A family vacation becomes a nightmare when the wife is found face-down in the lake.

All of the episodes of the Forensic Files DVDs are stunningly excellent and commendable. The attention to details is simply superb and provides immense and valuable information about forensic sciences. The narration of Peter Thomas is exceptionally outstanding and impressive. A must-must see series !

It's set up like a Dateline but lots of information in it. I would definitely recommend it! Both she and I were very pleased!

I chose '5' stars for this 2 disc set of historic forensic cases because the investigations are so thorough. I love how each case shows how circumstantial evidence can make all of the difference in the findings of a case. One great example of that is a cat hair that was on the body of a victim in the trunk of a car. The only thing that lead investigators to know for sure that the victim was in the trunk was a hair from her cat. Anyone intrigued by suspenseful murder mysteries will definitely enjoy this set.
