They are seemingly hopeless cases: The child who fell to his death from a bridge. The video on which it can be heard and seen how a man is shot in the Leipzig rocker war. Or the crime scene of a serious robbery, where there are many traces but few findings. He reconstructs crime scenes in 3-D models, simulates the course of events and creates digital doubles of victims and perpetrators. Whenever investigators get stuck with classic methods of analyzing evidence, they turn to Dirk Labudde. Based on his most exciting cases, he shows that the future of digital forensics has long since begun, what opportunities it offers, but also what risks lie ahead.
