CSI: NY

Not What It Looks Like - S3-E2

Corrected entry: They manage to identify the African blood diamond dealer by analysing his coat seam’s wear pattern using video surveillance footage. Problem is, in the US Customs footage, they take the seam on the left of his back and in the jewellery store's footage, the seam on the right. There is no way they could match the wear pattern of two different seams.

Correction: The seam in question is in the middle of his back. The only difference in the two pictures is that the diamond dealer is leaning in different directions in each picture. The real problem with this scenario is whether the definition on the surveillence video from both souces is of high enough quality to even make this comparison. That is something of a stretch.
