Life has not been kind to Peter Maurek. Grief-stricken over the recent losses in his life, those closest to Peter are worried — nobody more so than his older brother, Greg. Greg is up late, Mother's Day 2005, when Peter stumbles into the family home drunk and belligerent. A fight breaks out between brothers and moments later a single gunshot sails through the Oklahoma night. Is this a tragic case of suicide or deadly fraternal passion? The forensic experts on each side battle it out. Who do you think got it right?
Caught on Tape
On a rainy October night in 2006 flames erupted out of the seventh floor of a downtown Baltimore apartment building. Within minutes firefighters arrived to quell the flames, but inside they found the badly beaten body of makeup artist Marcus Rogers. He was rushed to the hospital but did not survive the vicious attack. Investigators concentrate their investigation on surveillance footage from the lobby of the building. Minutes before the fire alarm went off, a man is seen exiting the building in a leather coat with fur trim. Could this be the same man seen entering the building with the victim earlier that day, or is it pure coincidence. Experts analyze the footage and the crime seen and come to two stunningly different conclusions.
Two children vanish under their stepfather's watchful eye. Two months later, their badly decomposing remains are discovered near a local cemetery.

And when the defense takes over, they say the same evidence clears their client and the real killer is still out there. It's a case that rests on Mother Nature. Watch as two sets of forensic experts battle over the biological evidence.
