This is a documentary originally broadcast on PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) as a segment of the program "Nova" in 1999.
Dr. Sheppard's insistence that a mysterious stranger was the real killer led to his eventual acquittal years after the murder and inspired the plot of "The Fugitive."
But who was the killer?
The film reopens America's most intriguing unsolved murder case.
You can hear insights from the forensic expert---DNA specialist Barry Scheck, a member of O.J. Simpson's legal "Dream Team."
It is a fascinating, gripping and insipational detective story.
