The Vinho Verde region of northern Portugal, hugs the Atlantic coastline between the Douro River to the south and the Minho River to the north – where it shares a border with Spain. This unique agricultural region was terrorized for months by a gang of armed and violent criminals. Vinho Verde means green or young wine - meant to be consumed within a year of bottling. It would take much longer than that, however, to solve the nine Vinho Verde carjackings involving grand larceny, robbery, assault, and murder. It would take a joining of people, processes and technology: a car stop by police in a suburb of Spain four years later, a single and seemingly insignificant cartridge case, two visionary forensic experts and an innovative ballistics data sharing program at INTERPOL called IBIN.
