The battered body lay at the bottom of the staircase in a Broughty Ferry mansion house near Dundee. Over 100 years later the murderer hasn’t been found.

In this first episode, Pennie Latin introduces the scene through the words of Sergeant John Forbes who was the first person to see the body of Miss Jean Milne. From there we speak with a range of experts who are involved with the process of examining and protecting a crime scene including Professors Niamh Nic Daeid and Lucina Hackman from the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Dundee, Detective Constable Helen Ireland, Alex Prentice QC and Jo Millington a forensic scientist who specialises in blood stain pattern analysis. Through their words we explore what evidence was visible, how it might be useful to solving the crime and the relationships between the professionals involved in an investigation.
