In the season 8 premiere episode, "Gone," Dallas Detective Dwayne Thompson delves into a missing persons case that brings him to an apartment covered in blood, but no body to go along with it. Chasing a trail of clues, Thompson and the Dallas homicide team are always one step behind their suspect and the missing remains. Then, the search leads them to a wooded campsite where they find hanging vulture heads and samurai swords ... but will they catch their man before he slips away again?
The critically acclaimed Real-Life series "The First 48" follows homicide detectives in real time during the critical first 48 hours of murder investigations and gives viewers unprecedented access to the crime scenes, forensic processing and interrogations of the Minneapolis, Tucson, Miami, Memphis, Dallas, Cincinnati and Detroit police departments.
