The First 48

2004-Present Docu-Series

Any homicide detective will tell you that the first forty eight hours after any murder case are the most important. It is at that time that the conditions are most opportune to investigate and shut the case for good by nabbing the suspects and bringing the perpetrator to justice because at that moment, the crime scene is fresh and the perpetrator has not had much time to make good their escape. ‘The First 48’ concentrates on the investigator in those crucial moments as they piece together the crime scene in a race against time.
