Are you ready to dive into the captivating world of true crime once again? Be sure to mark your calendars and set your reminders for this Monday, 9th October at 10pm. And then ready yourself for the return of “Donal MacIntyre’s Killer Evidence”, only on CBS Reality, home to expert-led true crime.
Returning to our screens after a summer break, this popular CBS Reality original show delves into some of the most perplexing and riveting murder cases, taking armchair detectives on a fascinating trip through the maze of forensic science and criminal investigation.  
Hosted by acclaimed investigative journalist and criminologist Donal McIntyre, the series explores cases in both the UK and USA, where forensics uncovered the ‘killer evidence’ that cracked the case and brought the guilty to justice.

Every episode is presented in a first-hand account by the key people involved in the investigation. We hear from the senior police officers who were first on the crime scene and the forensic experts whose skill helped secure the convictions.  
Expert commentators, including leading forensic scientist Tracy Alexander, Director of Forensic Services for the City of London Police, and senior forensic scientist Jo Millington provide excellent insight into the scientific techniques that were used to catch the killers. Meanwhile, forensic psychiatrist Dr Sohom Das, digital forensic expert Andrew Sheldon, and pathologist Brett Lockyer also contribute their expertise to the series, examining the psychological and physical aspects of the cases.  
Through their testimonies, viewers gain a deep understanding of the complexities of criminal investigations and the challenges that investigators face in solving these terrible crimes.  
“Donal MacIntyre’s Killer Evidence” returns with episode six on Monday night with the story of South Londoner Roy Brooker, reported missing after failing to show at his daughter’s nativity play in December 1999. Police are called to a burnt-out car which contains fragments of blood-stained clothes and face masks and suspect the worst. Door to door enquiries point the finger of blame at two known violent criminals, but with no body or witnesses the case stalls. But determined police work leads to a landfill site and a discovery which allowed DNA analysis to complete the jigsaw and crack the case.  
Episode seven casts a microscopic lens over a notorious 2021 case, the murder of a single Mum from Kent, Alex Morgan. Last seen at a petrol station in mid-November of that year, Alex was reported missing by her worried parents after failing to pick up her two boys. CCTV and mobile phone triangulation lead to a secluded farmyard and a gold Jaguar saloon owned by Mark Brown. There’s no sign of Alex but a search of a construction site leads to a forensic breakthrough, which leads to not one, but two murder convictions.

Later in the series features the case of 41-year-old Karen Doubleday, found dead in woodland near Manchester in April 2002. But there’s little forensic evidence at the crime scene, no DNA and no witnesses. The prime suspect is her boyfriend, Adam Hamilton, but with only circumstantial evidence and zero co-operation from Hamilton, police need something to tie him indelibly to the crime scene. A digital image expert and a forensic botanist provide the keys that unlock the mystery and put Hamilton behind bars.  
“Donal MacIntyre’s Killer Evidence” is another gripping series in CBS Reality’s unmatched roster of true crime programming. As with all their original true crime shows, this series is built on the foundations of first-hand accounts, case-cracking evidence and the expert insights that fit the pieces of these disturbing crimes together.
