Police have linked Monday's shooting in Northern Virginia to the sniper stalking the metro Washington, D.C. area. Linda Franklin, a 47-year-old FBI analyst, became the ninth fatality linked to the sniper when she was killed in a Home Depot parking lot. With public anxiety mounting, police are under great pressure to find the person(s) responsible. Dr. Michael Baden, the chief forensic pathologist for the New York State Police, joins host Neal Conan to discuss the methodology and technology used by the investigators.
