On March 27, 2009, 8 year-old Sandra Cantu disappears from her California neighbourhood. On April 6, 2009, the police received a phone call that a suitcase had been discovered in a local pond. Watch the interrogation of Sandra's killer Melissa Huckaby as she tries to explain what happened. Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets takes a unique look at the battle of wits between police and suspects in some of the most disturbing US and UK criminal cases in recent years. The series is presented by criminal barrister and television personality Robert Rinder, whose legal background makes him the perfect guide to the dark arts of interrogation. Across Rob Rinder’s Interrogation Secrets, a team of experts will analyse the police interviews, in each of which the skilled work of detectives was key to cracking the case and securing a conviction. With Rob as our expert guide, retired senior detectives from the US and the UK, forensic and criminal psychologists and body language experts will examine the original police footage of interrogations at the heart of each case, to reveal the ‘tricks of the trade’ used to extract a confession and the tell-tale signs that a suspect is lying.
