It was a Crime Scene Investigation like no other.  A man was tortured, beaten and killed. He was popular with the people but many in power wanted him dead.   After a mock trial the powerful had their way. He was given a hasty burial, but now the body has disappeared. Was there a clue left behind? Were there witnesses to what happened?

A bloody sheet offers evidence of a horrific execution.   Were the charges justified?   Rumors fly and each side stands by their story. A haunting image on linen offers a mysterious and controversial clue about the missing body. Was the body stolen?   By who and why? Did it just vanish? What does the cloth reveal about the disappearance? Historians, coroners, archaeologists, chemists, physicists, botanists, image specialists, art experts, textile experts and many others are brought in to offer testimony. Will they solve this first century mystery?  

The Shroud of Turin may be the greatest unsolved mystery of all time.   Could this bloodstained sheet be a clue to unlocking the case of the missing body?   Things looked that way in 1981.   The Shroud of Turin Research Project (STURP) involving 24 scientists had hands-on access to the cloth for five days. After three years analyzing the data, they rendered their verdict:

“We can conclude for now that the Shroud image is that of a real human form of a scourged, crucified man.   It is not the product of an artist. The blood stains are composed of hemoglobin and also give a positive test for serum albumin.”  

However, in 1988 the case for the Shroud was closed tight.   It could no longer be considered a credible clue. Three carbon dating labs determined the cloth could be no older than 700 years.   The Shroud was pronounced a fake, end of story. Or is it?
