Famous Cases
Legendary Crimes of the Twentieth Century
 
Although the first book of forensic medicine was published in 1400 in China, the scientific investigation of crimes has become more sophisticated only in the past 100 years. The 1990s saw enormous advances in the field of forensic science and, like medical care, has moved away from generalization toward specialization.

Therefore, today we can ask ourselves questions to determine the truth surrounding crimes. Will a pattern of similarities emerge? Would contemporary investigative techniques have made a difference in the outcome of the Sacco-Vanzetti case? Would the authorities have held to the tenets of forensics to begin with? Were they applied in the cases of O.J. Simpson and Dr. Sam Sheppard or in the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby? Dr. Lee revisited those cases with a new scientific view.

The legendary investigator is known for finding the tiniest clues, and has even solved a murder without a body. Over the past 40 years, Dr. Lee assisted in the investigations of more than 6,000 cases, including war crimes in Bosnia and Croatia, and the suicide of President Clinton's former White House attorney, Vince Foster.
