Sample CrimeCon sessions and experiences. Actual sessions to be announced. CrimeCon begins at 12:30p on Friday, June 9th and runs through approximately 1:30p on Sunday, June 11th.

EYEWITNESS
A violent crime happens right in front of you and the cops need your help to find the suspect. Can you accurately describe what you saw? Can you explain it to a sketch artist? Can you identify the perp in a lineup? It may not be as easy as you think...

LEAD INVESTIGATOR
You're the first cop to arrive at the scene of a grisly murder. The body is warm, the dog is barking, the smell of gunpowder still lingers in the air. Can you piece together the clues and figure out who did it without contaminating the evidence?

44 MINUTES
You are being held captive in a basement by a deranged killer. He'll be back in 44 minutes. Can you piece together the clues and escape before he returns?

COLD CASE CLUES
The Golden State Serial Killer. The Long Island Serial Killer. The disappearance of Maura Murray. We lay out the evidence in cases that have investigators stymied. Can you help?

THE JURY
You're on the jury of a high-profile murder case. Can you navigate through the pitfalls and reach a verdict?  If so, will it match the verdict from the real jury that heard the case? 

CELL PHONE TRACKING 101
The case of Adnan Syed from 'Serial' turned on cell phone tracking testimony. Just how accurate is the data? What do telecom companies really know about our locations, who we're with, and what we're doing?

CSI: INDIANAPOLIS
Watch as a CSI team processes a replica crime scene step by step, explaining what they're doing and why.

The why of murder always fascinates me so much more than the how.
