Catching Killers: SEASON 2: EPISODE 2

Cyber Forensics

A spy uncovering government secrets from home. A serial killer hunting female escorts online. Two dangerous criminals, both of whom played a vital role in the evolution of digital forensics. We track two investigations, decades apart, detailing how cyber sleuthing was first used to snare a West German hacker in 1986, and how, years later, technical advances helped the Boston Police capture the Craigslist Killer. See how this ever-evolving science has become a major player in catching killers and keeping us safe - online and in the real world.
