974 - Talking About Old Crimes

February 17th, 2014

Episode 38 of 465 episodes

Try to solve murder mysteries from many years ago in this episode on crime. Slow dialog: 1:13 Explanations: 2:51 Fast dialog: 15:51 Paul: What are you watching? Della: I’m watching a really good show about cold cases. They take unsolved crimes from decades ago and reconstruct them, trying to solve them once and for all. Paul: But after all this time, isn’t the trail cold? How do they solve the crimes with no new leads? Della: They go over the witness testimony and use scientific methods that didn’t exist many years ago. Paul: Isn’t there a statute of limitations for most crimes? Della: Yes, but not for murder. Paul: I really doubt a TV show can solve crimes that the police couldn’t crack. Are any crimes really ever solved on the show? Della: Yes, of course. Paul: How? Through crack investigative methods or a keen eye for detail? Della: Deathbed confessions. Paul: Ah. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
