There is no Next Episode of Forensic Files planned.
In the series premiere (pilot) of Forensic Files, the longest running true crime series in television history, a Connecticut flight attendant went missing and was never seen again. Police suspected her husband was guilty of murder, and they were able to prove it - even though they never found the woman's body.
A fifteen-year-old boy died from a mysterious gunshot wound to his head while he was sitting in the lobby of his father's gun club. Ballistics, laser technology, made-to-scale models, and the latest in forensic animation showed that bullet had followed a tragic course after a misfire at the outdoor range.
A woman disappeared and her husband became the prime suspect -- especially after police found a huge bloodstain on the carpet of their bedroom. When they sprayed the bedroom with Luminol, they discovered it was awash with blood spatter. Complex DNA testing proved it was the wife's blood. Now all they had to do was find her body.
Early one morning in a deserted area outside of Phoenix, a motorcyclist discovered the body of a young woman. She had been beaten, bound, strangled and possibly raped. The nearby plants would tell investigators more about the killer than any other single piece of evidence.
On the night of May 22, 1992, Betty Wilson returned home after a meeting. She walked up the stairs to the bedroom and discovered her husband, lying in a pool of blood. Jack Wilson had obviously been murdered... but how? And by whom? Even the experts couldn't agree.
Between 1985 and 1988, 18 people were choked, molested and left for dead in the remote desert mountains of California. The only witnesses were the insects -- and they also proved to play an important role in solving the crimes and bringing the killer to justice.
