Plot

The official Reelz synopsis says, "Forensic Pathologist Dr Michael Hunter reopens one of Hollywood’s most famous cold cases, examining over 700 pages of original police reports together with crime scene photographs and video to try and work out who would have wanted Bob dead. Some believe his brutal divorce battle had something to do with it, others that the mob had got to him, but everyone agreed Bob’s addiction to sex and filming his own sex tapes had something to do with it."

Adding to the mystery around this murky case police reportedly found Crane's apartment crammed with cameras, lights and editing equipment. Since one of the tripods was missing, police quickly assumed this could be a possible murder weapon. One of the main suspects in the case was John Carpenter, a home video salesman, who featured in several of Bob’s sex tapes. He had fled the scene on the morning of the murder, and when the police found blood in John’s rental car, they found it was the same rare blood group as Bob’s. But it would take another 16 years to bring Carpenter to trial. Carpenter protested his innocence throughout. But if it wasn’t Carpenter who was it? Could advancements in DNA testing today provide answers?
