Storyline

The strangled corpse of a pregnant woman turns up in a chunk of ice floating in the Hudson; a man is poisoned to death by a lethal chemical that is almost impossible to obtain. The mysteries surrounding these and other cases might have remained unsolved were it not for the efforts of the forensic pathologist. These 'detectives of death' give the dead the voice they need to reveal who, or what, lead to their ultimate demise. Written by Anonymous
