Amateur Sleuths Get Their Bloody Bluffs Called

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – It’s not easy being a crime-solving forensics expert, and some amateur sleuths are finding that out the hard, bloody way.

Detective Tommy Le Noir, a 27-year Arlington, Texas, law enforcement pro, is hosting a new reality crime series called Murder on Spike TV, which gives groups of civilians a chance to correctly solve real crimes pulled straight from police files.

Teams investigate recreations of the crime scenes and have 48 hours to collect the evidence, test it at the crime lab, and then solve the murder.

While the show sounds like a game of CSI, Le Noir says the realistic crime scenes have made arrogant wannabe sleuths think twice about the bloody profession.

Le Noir explains, “A lot of these contestants come on the show cocky and cavalier, thinking they can solve any crime just like on CSI. But once they get to the crime scene, reality hits them and they realize how incredibly graphic the job is. A lot of them get sick, but at least they learn their lesson!”

Murder premieres July 31st on Spike TV.
