"Person of Interest" theme in real life

CBS presents "Person of Interest" on Thursday nights. The show depicts resolution of potential crimes by information technology analysis of video cam outputs.

On Thursday, January 24, 2013, CBS KYW did an exclusive story on the breaking of the gruesome murder case of 35-year-old Dr. Melissa Ketunuti, who was strangled, with her body set on fire. High resolution video from a store near Ketunuti's home captured Jason Smith of Levittown following the doctor and later leaving the vicinity of the doctor's home.

KYW noted Jason Smith had received favorable reviews on Angie's List.

Also, Todd Quinones did a story (with video by Jose Mora; Barbara Lou Jeffries) on a streaker hanging onto a SEPTA bus. The streaker went after one of the video takers and was video'd by the other.

Also on surveillance cameras:

A nearby business surveillance camera caught the entire ordeal as Safe can be seen walking down the stairs into the shopping center's plaza and then suddenly dropping into the chilly canal waters.

According to The Sun, a bystander called out to warn Safe that she was walking toward the frozen canal but it was too late. Businessman Neil Edginton was able to rescue Safe and pull her out of the water.

Edginton tells The Sun he "realized her focus was on her mobile phone and that she was going to walk straight into the water. I shouted to her to stop but it was too late. I dropped my phone and ran over to her. I had to lay down on the side with my arms in the water because she was submerged and pulled her out."
