Cold Case Files is a 1999–present documentary television series on the cable channel A&E Network hosted by Bill Kurtis that documents the investigation of various long-unsolved murders (referred to as "cold cases" in detectives' parlance) through the use of modern forensic science (especially recent advances in DNA techniques), and criminal psychology, in addition to recent breakthroughs in the case(s) involving previously silent witnesses. According to A&E, the show has been widely praised by law enforcement agencies and its investigative reports are commonly used in the training of detectives.[1] It has also served as inspiration for a number of popular later police dramas on network television (i.e. Cold Case).[citation needed]

Cold Case Files first aired as a sub-series of another A&E crime documentary program, Investigative Reports, also hosted by Bill Kurtis, which ran from 19912004.[citation needed] Since 2009, reruns have been aired in syndication Saturday evenings at 5 and 6 p.m. (sometimes 6 p.m.) on MyNetworkTV.

Portrait Of A Killer/The Tortured Truth - "Portrait of a Killer" told about how NecroSearch, a volunteer team of victim advocates with technical investigation skills, successfully investigated the disappearance of photographer Michelle Wallace, age 25, who had been reported missing from Gunnison, Colorado, in 1974. Initially police had suspected a drifter named Roy Melanson who had Michelle’s camera, but said she had given it to him. Hikers found a clump of brown hair and a piece of human scalp, but no more evidence surfaced and the case went cold. In 1992, Necrosearch members mapped out a grid in the remote area where the hair had been found and conducted an intensive surveillance, walking in a line about an arm’s length apart. Geologist Cecilia Travis spotted what appeared to be a large, white mushroom. Something near it glinted in the sun, which turned out to be Michelle's gold molar, while the “mushroom” turned out to be her skull. Other remains were uncovered, and investigators successfully obtained the evidence needed to convict Melanson for murder.[3]
