What happens when a true crime journalist got so frustrated with writing unsolved murder stories with no endings that he started solving the murders himself?

Billy Jensen will present some of his methods--which combine old-fashioned shoe leather work, marketing, geo-profiling, social media targeting, and scotch—as he walks the crowd through one of his recent cases that resulted in an arrest, as well as one of his active investigations, where the crowd can put its collective heads together to try and get some answers.

Along the way Jensen will speak to the feature stories he has written and filmed that have large citizen detective components—like Luka Magnotta (Rolling Stone), Maura Murray (Boston Magazine) and the Allenstown 4 and Caledonia Doe (Crime Watch Daily). He will also present a peek at his plan for how police forces can begin to use civilian volunteers to assist them in cold case investigations.
