According to this article, murderers are getting evidence-hiding advice from high-tech forensic shows like the CSI series.
' "They're actually educating these potential killers even more," said Capt. Ray Peavy, also of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and head of the homicide division. "Sometimes I believe it may even encourage them when they see how simple it is to get away with on television." '
Whoa. On shows like CSI, no one gets away with it. The moral is always that crime does not pay, that the smartest criminal always makes a mistake, and that you cannot fake reality completely.
A grimly funny part of the article was about a guy who killed two women and tried to clean up all the evidence. He washed his hands with bleach to get rid of their blood. He burned the bodies. Then he tried to throw one of the weapons he had used - a crowbar - into a lake.
But the lake was frozen.
"He shouted a profanity when the crowbar remained on the surface."
Though you make your plan ever so neatly,
You will find you can't fake it completely.
