- Sarah Fox (2004): “She was a 21-year-old Juilliard student found dead in a remote area of Inwood Hill Park in Upper Manhattan. There have been so many twists and turns in this case … and still no answers. A detective with NYPD’s Cold Case squad tells us about a new approach to this investigation.”
- Jamal Gaines (2016): “From the time he was a boy he collected vintage sneakers like Air Jordans. By the time he was 21 years old, he had opened his own store in Rahway, NJ, and business was booming. Then one day, after hours, two masked gunmen entered the store and shot him. The murder was caught on video.”
- The New Milford Murder (1985): “A senior citizen in New Milford, Conn., was stabbed to death inside his home. A brutal killing — blood sprayed up the walls and onto the ceiling. Two men who were teenagers at the time of the killing were convicted of the crime. For 30 years they maintained their innocence, and now the Connecticut supreme court is taking a second look at their case. Turns out, a big focus is the testimony of criminologist Henry Lee.”
