Detective Chad Gish, a 22-year veteran of the Metro Nashville Police Department, tells the story of his crucial role in solving the tragic case of Tiffany Ferguson, a 22-year-old ICU nurse who was brutally murdered in her Nashville apartment on February 28th, 2017. The truth of this case is that a man with no home, job or cellphone service still produced a vast digital footprint for forensic examiners to explore.

Detective Larry McClain tells the story of Pam Hupp, a complicated case out of St. Louis, Missouri, that involves at least two murders, three court trials, and as many twists and turns as a Hollywood movie.

The real star of this case is digital evidence, as the data that Detective McClain was able to pull from Pam’s cellphone was essential in uncovering the truth and bringing the killer to justice.
