Eagle-eyed technical experts prove there is no such thing as a perfect crime as they assemble the pieces every criminal leaves behind. Dramatic crime re-creations and, sometimes, part of the investigations are a staple of the series. Some of the re-creations include alternate versions of the crimes, which are disproved by science. The show's episodes follow each case from the initial investigation until it reaches its legal resolution.

Sometimes those least expected to be capable of committing such dark deeds -- respected role models and trusted members of the community -- can have a sinister side. "Unusual Suspects" documents baffling, challenging investigations, actual cases that were anything but cut and dry. Episodes feature in-depth interviews with leading law enforcement personnel combined with stylized re-enactments, illustrating how illusive offenders evaded capture for years before being undone by persistent police work.
Victims' rights activist John Walsh returns to weekly TV as host of a documentary-style investigation series. Walsh details stories of ongoing cases involving fugitives, with the intent of expanding searches outside the United States. Interviews with victims, loved ones and law enforcement accompany new leads in each hourlong episode, giving the public information to facilitate the capture of suspects. Walsh, a spokesman for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, hosted the series "America's Most Wanted" for 25 years, helping apprehend more than 1,200 criminals.
