On May 5, 2003, Chi Hyon Song, a 30-year-old mother, along with her two-year-old son, and their 56-year-old nanny Eun Sik Min, were all slain, execution-style, in their modest apartment in Koreatown.   LAPD detectives first suspected Song’s husband, but his alibi was air tight. With no other suspects, the case goes cold. That is, until 2008, when a law enforcement DNA database turned up a new connection to the case. Learn more about your ad choices.

As part of Strangeland’s reinvestigation, Ben and Sharon have been keeping a list that goes way beyond culture clashes and misunderstandings.

But how much of the science that’s presented at court is actually scientific? Ben and Sharon look closely at specific pieces of evidence presented at trial and find out that some of the bedrock assumptions about evidence and crimes… could be wrong.  Learn more about your ad choices.

here's the DNA evidence explained: the murderer pulled into his parking space knowing what he was going to do, sees gloves sticking out of/hanging over a box in the parking space next to him and thinks "oh yeah I should use gloves" so he takes them and uses them - maybe 2 pairs and layers them so the gloves fragments that stay behind don't have his DNA on them. the end.

you guys are killing me. I just spent the last 30 minutes yelling at my phone in my car. what do you and the defense attorney mean you can't explain the DNA?!! Didn't you say a couple times in the first episode or 2 that Robin Cjo's parking spot was NEXT TO the victim's??? As soon as I (thought I) heard that I was like "Oh it was probably the husband."

I cannot believe they can lie in an interrogation, even during the trailer for this show, when they were saying they had his dna, I immediately thought, but they can lie about that right?
