Bed of Deceit is the title that was given to the twenty eighth episode of Forensic Files's eighth season. This episode was first broadcast for the first time on truTV on August 4, 2005.


A retired police officer, Daniel McDonnell is discovered in his bed, dead of a single gunshot wound to the head. His wife, Cynthia McDonnell, first says the motive was robbery; then she tells police he committed suicide.

It would take careful examination of the evidence at the crime scene, the tape from a bank surveillance camera, and forensic textbooks found in the victim's home to write the final chapter of this real-life whodunit.
