In the dark recesses of a warehouse, a drunken game of cards explodes into a murder. Now the night watchman lays dead. The only witnesses are a housefly or perhaps a cockroach that might be skittering by. That stylized tribute to our seemingly endless appetite for TV programs about forensic science sets the stage for an examination of how, in the real world of police investigations, nature is being enlisted in the war on crime. Sifts through the mayhem, murder, and science that make up the world of forensic investigation with the help of Dr. Jennifer Gardy, of British Columbia's Centre for Disease Control (CDC).
