'Murder House' on NET

Fans of the C.S.I shows will want to tune into Nebraska Educational Television Nov. 16 (9 p.m.), Nov. 18 (1 and 9 p.m.) or Nov. 22 (9 p.m.) to see what goes on behind the scenes.

“Murder House,” a new documentary from NET, takes a look at the next generation of crime scene investigators and how they are being trained.

The doc focuses on a masters degree program in forensic sciences at Nebraska Wesleyan University where students work on a mock crime scene set at an actual house as part of their training.

During the making of the doc, investigators in Omaha were getting to work on the case of Jessica O’Grady, a young Omaha woman who had disappeared. The Douglas County C.S.I. team collected enough evidence from suspect Chris Edwards’ bedroom to conclude that O’Grady died in the room. They charged him with murdering O’Grady in May 2006.

Due to what jurors felt was overwhelming evidence, Edwards was later convicted of murder in the O’Grady case. It was the first murder conviction without a body in the history of Nebraska.

“Murder House” talks with lead C.S.I. member David Kofoed about the O’Grady case and offers fascinating insight and images into the case and how the investigators went about solving it.

Kofoed said in a recent interview that his staff at the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office provided several O’Grady crime scene photos, as well as aspects of Kofeod’s PowerPoint presentation that he offered in court during testimony to NET for the documentary.

It was on last night, but I think it repeats several times in the next week or so. I saw the show - it's great! Definately worth watching.
