Season 1, Episode 50: The Murder Room
In 1990, three friends worked together to create a crack crime fighting team – a group of professionals who brought expertise from all facets of crime fighting. There were detectives, scientists, psychologists, and even a forensic artist. They named their group after Eugene Francois Vidocq, a French criminal turned crimefighter from the 18th century. The Vidocq Society meets once a month for lunch and cold case discussions. Members come from over a dozen states and multiple foreign countries. The founders were inspired to act on this simple premise: someone had to do something to alleviate the suffering that the bad guys (and girls) were causing. Why not them?
