  • Jeffrey McDonald, who became the subject of the bestseller Fatal Vision.
  • Mister Perfect, Brad Cunningham, who was convicted of bludgeoning his wife to death.
  • Michael Peterson, who was the subject of the IFC documentary series The Staircase and a Lifetime movie original starring Treat Williams.
  • OJ Simpson, whose dream team of lawyers defended the former pro-football player and movie star of the brutal murder of his ex-wife as the entire nation watched.
  • Claus von Bulow, immortalized in the book and movie Reversal of Fortune.
  • Robert Blake, former TV star, who was suspected of engineering the death of his conwoman wife.
  • Scott Peterson, a philandering sociopathic husband who almost escaped arrest for the murder of his wife and unborn child.
  • Lambert “Bart” Knol, who claimed he suffered from “substance-induced persistent amnesia” when he was accused of killing his wife of 38 years.

These cases and others are presented in an objective manner by a knowledgeable voice that recognizes that suspicion, and sometimes even conviction, are not always synonymous with guilt.
