The First 48 Trivia

The series title comes from the fact that most crimes where the perpetrator is caught are solved within 48 hours after the commission of the crime.

While forensic evidence and other technological detective methods are used on The First 48, this is real-life and shouldn't be confused with the fictional shows like "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation". It's more likely that the location of a murder will be discovered via witness testimony than by discovering an insect in the victims body that only exists in one small part of the U.S. It's refreshing to see how science works rather than what borders on science fiction.
