Diagnosis Murder
Exploring the suspect science behind shaken baby accusations.

“Diagnosis Murder” tells the story of several Canadian parents who say they were wrongfully accused–and the leading-edge medical researchers who believe they’re telling the truth. The stakes are high: Some have gone to jail. All have had their other children taken away from them.

The Fifth Estate investigates shaken baby syndrome. For decades, the diagnosis virtually guaranteed convictions, shattering the lives of thousands of parents, babysitters and families.

Now new evidence questions whether the syndrome even exists and whether some of those convictions may have been wrongful.
