Farewell From Shane Saunders


After an incredible decade of covering the CSI: Crime Scene Investigation franchise online, potential new endeavors are forcing me to step away from the site. It’s been an incredible journey; from my early days at Elyse’s Comprehensive CSI site, to Modern Day Sherlock, and finally a beautiful home at CSI Files, I feel honored and privileged to have had the wonderful opportunities given to me over the years thanks to CSI, CSI: Miami, and CSI: New York.

Though I am stepping away from providing coverage, my unwavering love, support, and admiration for this franchise will continue for many years to come. A huge staple in my life, the CSI shows have driven me to pursue a career path in television production that I do hope comes to fruition. I’ve been tuning in each and every week since 2001, and there’s no sign of me turning my back anytime soon.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank CSI Files site owner, Christian Sparborth, for the chance to be a part of the writing team at CSI Files, and news writer Rachel Trongo for her continued support. I’m also eternally grateful to the hardworking writers, cast, crew and publicists who work on the CSI franchise. They have been so supportive of this site and giving of their time for interviews. Finally, I’d like to thank all of the readers (past and present) who have interacted with my features over the years. It’s been terrific.

There’s still some of the best articles to come, but the door closes here. Thanks to everyone for a very exciting journey.
