This hour: amateur sleuths and internet detectives.

Internet Sleuths 
by Sara Parker (BBC Radio 4, 2007)
Unfinished business doesn’t sit well in the human brain. We like closure. We like endings. But of course, that isn’t always possible. Crimes go unsolved, mysteries stay unknowable. But this kind of unfinished business, unfinished criminal business, just feeds the flames of determination in a group of amateur detectives.

Girl Detectives 
by Sue Mell (Transom.org, 2003)
Everyone seems to be fascinated by crime, as long as it doesn't hit too close to home. Sue Mell is an independent producer in California, who never expected to be writing about murder, crime, detectives, police work, or housewives on the hunt. But then she found out first hand about the sheer frustration of a true crime without a true solution. 


This episode of Re:sound was produced by Roman Mars.
