The Carr Family is a well known family of cops, for three generations now. Now the current generation of cops are investigating a serial killer who murders his victims all differently so they can't trace them all back to him. Yet the murder starts sending Tom Carr, at the police station, videos with him, the serial killer, on it. If that wasn't bad enough. Tom and his wife Helen have to care for their nephew, Matt, when his mom is killed and his dad is hospitalized one night after a shooting at a near convince store. The killer starts to get personal now and attacks the Carr family, by kidnapping and threatening to kill Matt. What will the Carr family do in this time of Crisis? Will Matt be saved in enough time or be the next victim to the killer? Written by Princessmaniac1

Good Show
28 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I enjoy your show but was disturb by what I saw. Why would a seasoned officer handle evidence in a case with bare hands (no gloves), the mace container. Why would an officer handle evidence without gloves. Not only was evidence contaminated but now the officer prints are on the container. The show I saw was aired on December 28, 2005 at 11:30 pm on SUN TV in Hamilton. It makes me concerned that this may be an avenue for the defense that the evidence was contaminated. Or are we dealing with a COST issued like rape cases ( unless you can identify our rapist the DNA is not tested) so a serial rapist can go undetected. The only way to identify a criminal is by EYE WITNESS identification which we know is unreliable.
