Crime Scene

Hosted by

We hear about crime scenes, and the stories they tell. A forensic criminologist explains what can be learned from the shape of a blood stain or a piece of cheese. Reporter Nancy Updike spends two days with Neal Smither, who cleans up crime scenes for a living. Katie Davis reports on her neighbor Bobby, who returned to the scene where he robbed people and conned people - to coach Little League. And a short story by Aimee Bender, from her book The Girl in the Flammable Skirt, about a boy with a knack for finding lost things.
