Summary
This program illustrates how dedicated detectives and advanced forensic tests are marking Case Closed on crimes formerly believed to be unsolvable. Segment one documents the disappearance of freelance photographer Michele Wallace from Gunnison, Colorado, in 1974 and how, 18 years later, her murderer Roy Melanson was finally brought to justice. In segment two, a case of torture involving a troubled youth named Joe Clark and his 13-year-old victim Thad Philips enables investigators to connect Clark to a murder committed a year earlier. Gritty crime scene photography and interviews with the officers involved are included throughout.
