Dead Reckoning 3

Solving a murder is like putting together a giant jigsaw puzzle. Sometimes, the pieces snap into place with ease. But sometimes, none of them seem to fit together.

In these cases, police may have no idea what the big picture is or whether some of the key pieces are missing.

In Dead Reckoning, we will recount some of our nation's most puzzling murder investigations.

To get to the bottom of these mysteries, the police must methodically and meticulously reconstruct what happened.

This includes reconstructing the life of the victim by studying all the clues they left behind, from hidden Facebook threads to saved Google searches to discarded ticket stubs.

Once all the pieces are found, investigators must then figure out how everything fits together, crack the case and bring justice for the victim.

In the Season 3 premiere, "Left at the Scene": Crime Scene Investigator Bob Loyd uses more then 200 pieces of ballistic, fingerprint, serology and physical evidence to convict violent murderer and rapist Robert Harlan.

Also, fingerprints left on a shattered piece of glass discovered several blocks from the crime scene are used to convict Samuel Mandez of the murder of elderly Frida Winter.
