This DVD details twelve trial cases that were overturned after re-examining pertinent evidence that led to the original convictions. I had heard about the Canadian case where a woman's death at the bottom of a staircase was proven by bio mechanics to actually had been a fall down the steps.
Michael Peterson's [The Staircase} legal team actually tried to bring this case in Canada to trial as an example of his innocence, however, the forensics experts in this Canadian case were far more prepared than Peterson's bio-mehanical expert who testified in his trial. No question of his guilt.

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.

The episodes you'll find on this set all address different cases where science helped exonerate a convicted person. All 12 investigations are very interesting. Here are the 12 episodes you'll find on this set:

1. Accident Or Murder: A woman's body was found at the bottom of the basement stairs. Police initially believed that she died as a result of an accidental fall, but when officials learn that her husband had taken out a life insurance policy on her shortly before she died, they knew they had their killer. When an investigator recreates the fall, the results are surprising.
2. All Butt Certain: A six-year-old girl ran and hid when she saw her grandmother being beaten to death, but the man followed her, beat her, and assaulted her. The girl said the man was her Uncle Clarence, and he was convicted because of her identification. His wife was convinced he was innocent, and decided to conduct her own investigation to prove it.
3. Forever Hold Your Peace: Two men confess to a murder that took place behind a restaurant and are sentenced to a life in prison. Eight years later, another man, who sentenced for an unrelated crime, claims responsibility. Who really did it?

Anything Forensic Files are the best! They are unfortunately out of production but if investigation is your bag, then get the whole set. I watch them over and over and never get tired. The writing, Peter Thomas' voice and production are superior. A best bet in my forensic file!

Any possible lead that you get is very important. It may end up helping innocent people overturn a conviction. And they should be rewarded somehow by the justice system for all the trouble they had gone through.

These are well presented real life crime stories which we enjoy watching the police do a great job. This is a good product that was as described. It arrived on time and was well packaged.

My Dad is the attorney who worked diligently to free the couple who had been convicted in the episode about the dog bites so I'm thrilled to have a copy of it.

Usually forensics are used to convict criminals, but theses are some interesting cases in which forensics were used to exonerate individuals.
