Renowned investigative journalist and criminologist Donal MacIntyre returns and will host this 10×60’ series to demonstrate through 10 UK and US cases, that forensics will always uncover the ‘killer evidence’ which brings murderers to justice.

Cases include that of the Camden Ripper, Anthony Hardy who killed three women: Sally White, Bridgette MacClennan and Elizabeth Valad, Stephen Nicholson’s brutal murder of 13-year-old Lucy McHugh, and Mark Brown who killed Leah Ware and Alexandra Morgan in 2021.
