7/25/07 Police Detection

The popularity of television shows like Cold Case and CSI have proven to be ratings winners for networks and resulted in increased interest in detective work. But real life seldom mirrors television and the work of the police is not wrapped up in an hour with commercial breaks.


This hour Marc talked with Lieutenant Terry Mc Larney and Detective Homer Pennington of the Baltimore Police Department Homicide Unit. They’re also cold case detectives who recently solved a 1989 Baltimore murder. We learned about the detective work that goes into solving years-old murder cases. Marc then talked with forensic psychologist Jim McGee about his work and the role profiling has played in police detection.
