Catching Killers: SEASON 2: EPISODE 7

Plant Evidence

The son of Charles Lindbergh, America's favorite aviator, is kidnapped and murdered in 1932. The crime grips the nation and baffles police. It also catches the attention of a mild mannered wood expert from Wisconsin whose expertise will blow the case wide open and establish the science of forensic botany. Discover how a simple slat of wood helped catch the man who killed "The Eaglet." Then see how, 60 years later, plant evidence in a man's truck is used to link him to an Arizona woman found murdered by a cluster of Palo Verde trees.
