Body of Evidence was a true-crime television series that aired on Court TV in 2001. The show was hosted by Dayle Hinman, a former FBI agent, Michael Hannon, a former detective, and Murray McDonald, a forensic expert. The show's main focus was on investigating the evidence and the facts surrounding some of the most fascinating cases in American criminal history. Each episode delved into one case, exploring the minutiae of the crime scene, the victims, and the suspects.

The show aimed to provide viewers with a unique perspective on the often-murky world of crime investigation. The hosts used their considerable experience and expertise to provide insights into the criminal mind, examine forensic evidence, and explore the motives behind the crimes.

The first season of the show aired five episodes, each running for an hour. The cases covered in the first season ranged from an investigation into the murder of a young woman and the disappearance of a college student to a closer look at the conviction of a man accused of murdering his girlfriend.

The presentation style of the show was very engaging, with the three hosts using a mix of dramatic recreations and interviews with investigators and expert witnesses to piece together the cases. The hosts were all able to offer their unique perspective on the cases, with Michael Hannon providing insight into the detective work involved in solving the crimes, Murray McDonald explaining the use of forensic evidence, and Dayle Hinman exploring the criminals' mindset.

One of the strengths of the show was its focus on the scientific process of investigating crimes. Even when examining older cases, the hosts placed a strong emphasis on testing and re-evaluating the evidence to get to the truth. This approach made for a fascinating viewing experience, as viewers were able to see the hosts' thoroughness and attention to detail on full display.

Another notable aspect of the show was its willingness to examine cases that had not received significant media coverage. While the show did cover some well-known cases, such as the murder of JonBenet Ramsey, it also took on lesser-known cases, offering viewers a chance to learn about crimes they may not have been familiar with before.

Throughout the show, there was always a sense of urgency, as the hosts were keen to uncover the truth and bring justice to the victims. This sense of purpose added an extra layer of drama to the proceedings, as viewers were invested in the outcomes of each case.

In conclusion, Body of Evidence was an excellent true-crime series that offered viewers a unique and in-depth look at some of the most fascinating cases in American history. With its engaging hosts, thorough investigation processes, and focus on the scientific method, the show was an informative and engaging viewing experience.

Body of Evidence is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on September 21, 2007.
