The cases that are highlighted on this show are those that were never able to solved when the crimes were actually committed - usually due to lack of technology, or the fear that witnesses had of being killed themselves. Some of these cases are over 25 years old when they are finally solved!
Many times, there is at least 1 investigator who just couldn't let the case go, and they swore that some day the perpetrator would be caught. These men & women deserve a lot of credit, as it is usually their tenaciousness that gets the case re-opened to begin with - and many times, they are invited to help in solving the case now, as they are quite familiar with the in's & out's involved.
For me, the best thing about this program is that it shows that eventually most people will have to pay for the crimes they've committed. They can no longer assume that if they weren't caught within the first year or so that they're off the hook. I imagine quite a few criminals are starting to shake in their boots, wondering if their case will be the next to be re-opened!
Overall, I would highly recommend this DVD to anyone who enjoys learning how crimes, especially those from the long ago past, can still be solved using the technology of today, and the doggedness of law enforcement. It's a real eye opener!
The best episodes are by far The Zodiac Killer and The Green River Killer, both of them are 45 minutes long and are very interesting, very well done. Other cases like "Killer in the County" and "The Weepy-Voiced Killer" are also very interesting. If you are a real fan of documentaries about True Crimes/Real life mysteries then go ahead, buy this DVD, for less than 20$ it's a good buy, but this could have been so much better. Good, but Disappointing.
