Following in the dramatic tradition of "CSI," Spike TV's "Murder,"

follows real people as they try to solve a real homicide pulled

directly from police files. Two groups of civilians are brought into

an exact replica crime scene pulled from the files of a solved homicide

case. Every pertinent detail available to the original detectives has

been recreated and available to the groups, who then assess the crime

scene and collect evidence. The groups are given a list of potential

suspects, an opportunity to analyze the suspect's interrogation tapes

and then meet with a coroner to review the findings of the original

autopsy report. Contestants are given 48 hours to complete their

investigation, collect and catalogue their evidence and use their own

smarts and instincts to find the murderer.
