"Murder by Numbers" begins in a similar fashion to many true-crime series. After a body is found, an intense investigation commences, quickly turning the focus to a very likely subject. But just as the viewer eases into the case via cinematic re-enactments and through the eyes of detectives, a shocking discovery of a second body not only eliminates the original suspect, it redirects the investigation on a harrowing journey of pure criminal evil.
