March, 2011. Law doctor Evy De Boosere is called by the public prosecutor. They need to go to a Brussels suburb, where in one of the many apartment blocks, probably a roofmoord is committed. When the doors of the seedy elevator to open on the eighth floor, is the view not beautiful. In the living room there is a 82-year-old woman in a pool of blood next to her, an English open-end wrench. In the bathroom there is a large blood-stained knife on the brown tiled floor. The husband of the dead woman is rather with injuries to hospital, discharged after he engaged was in a fight with three men in suits suddenly at his door stood. They would be looking have been to a vault, and gold bars. Dr. The Boosere begins the autopsy of the woman in what - for the sake of the remaining weapons - the 'Cluedomoord' will be called. Thanks to the crucial information they pass on, it turns out later not to be a roofmoord, but to a family drama. "It's one of those things which yet again shows that the hard reality is often the fiction surpasses," says The Boosere when they are back on the case. "It illustrates that nothing is what it seems. Both on the medical level (the injuries on the neck and arms of the man proved himself to have been made, red.) as in life in general."
'Wetsdokters' reconstructs the VTM-news service with the help of testimonies and archival footage, and every week two misdaadcases from the past. That got a different twist thanks to the research of five Flemish wetsdokters. Yet their lives are often not like that in movies and televisiereeksen be shown. "People think, for example, that we only seem to investigate, but that is not true at all," says The Boosere, affiliated to the University Hospital of Antwerp. "We also perform investigations on living victims or perpetrators. There are people not aware of it." Also the high-tech image of the sector turns out to be fine. "Often, there is a bit more primitive than in Hollywood," says The Boosere. "Now, take fingerprints, in the movies and series are often introduced into a system and there is a direct result. That is, in reality, quite different. They need to be taken, then sent and only after that they can be examined. The result is that there is at vróegste the next day." The doctors spend their days not only at a crime scene. "There are also a lot of less spectacular aspects to the job, though. We should be training, proceed to further investigation, reports, and immersing ourselves in the files. This means that there's also a lot of office work involved."
