Media has a great influence on the perceptions and opinions of the public throughout varying areas, particularly for crimes, investigations, and trials. People receive information about these key events through some form of media, and the way the facts are represented is crucial to what people will believe. To fully understand the sway media has on public opinion, further study is required.

Cases on Crimes, Investigations, and Media Coverage examines famous crime cases and the media coverage that surrounded them including film, television, and wider media coverage of major crimes, such as murders, the investigations that followed, and the subsequent trials. Covering critical topics such as press coverage, television, biases, news, perceptions, and film, this reference work is ideal for criminal justice professionals, forensics specialists, criminal justice advocates, journalists, media professionals, psychologists, sociologists, researchers, scholars, academicians, practitioners, instructors, and students.
