True Suspense offers carefully researched, real-life stories that involve death or disappearance under suspicious circumstances or major crimes that go sideways. In every story, key elements turn out to be different from what police and the public are initially led to believe. Twists and turns are plentiful as deliberate deceptions or innocent mistakes throw investigators off the trail. Written and narrated by an attorney and expert on the justice system, courtroom drama is often a part of the story, as felons are brought to account for misdeeds, while some cases that start with suspected crime may end up in a civil lawsuit involving yet another layer of drama. True Suspense will keep you at the edge of your seat, but it won't leave you hanging.
In this, the final episode of Body of the Crime, news suddenly breaks that "the mystery has been solved" and prosecutors file murder charges. A courtroom battle begins, but do the authorities have it right?
