Specials

Following the move of the show from TLC to CourtTV in 2000, TLC managed to produce four hour-long specials, "Payback", "The Buddhist Monk Murders", "Eight Men Out", and "See No Evil", but under the original Medical Detectives title. The first four specials do not feature narration by Peter Thomas due to a contract negotiation that wouldn't allow him to record episodes for TLC anymore. Instead, they were narrated by Peter Dean. Following their original broadcasts, three of these episodes did not air again until 2016, when they were broadcast on the HLN Network under the Forensic Files title. The last two specials, "JFK Assassination" and "The Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping" aired on CourtTV with Peter Thomas narrating under the title: Forensic Files Special.

February 27, 2016 (2016-02-27) (HLN)
This episode covers the 1993 disappearance and murder of twenty-year-old Bobby Kent in Weston, Florida, whose death was the work of seven people. The case, which became well known, is also the subject of a book and a movie.
2"Eight Men Out"June 7, 2001 (2001-06-07) (TLC)
A young sailor named Billy Bosko married his high school sweetheart, Michelle Moore Bosko. When he returns to his home port of Norfolk, Virginia on July 8, 1997, he finds his 19-year-old bride lying on the floor in a pool of blood. She had been raped and murdered. The police investigation focuses on a neighbor, who confesses. But his DNA does not match the killer's. That begins a series of police interrogations and 'confessions', all of which are in conflict with the forensic evidence. Four men are eventually sent to prison. Three others are accused. Finally, an eighth man confesses in a letter, and his is the only DNA that matches. Defense investigators and others wonder why were the other men accused and sent to prison.
