This is definitely one of the best episodes Cold Case has put out. This episode mainly surrounded Detective Jeffries and his conflicting emotions towards a man who was placed on death row for the murder of a 16 year old girl. The case is brought up after the cop who arrested the convict was found to be guilty of lying on the job. The convict stated when he was arrested he was framed by the cop. Jeffries feels up until the time of the execution the convict is guilty until he tells of what really happened that night which leaves the convict executed and innocent. Jeffries is desperate to find the truth, assaults the assistant district attorney after discovering he held back evidence which would have help save the convicts life. The story takes a turn to the convicts former employer whom sexually assaulted his daughter since she was 13 and had done the same the teenage girl the night of the murder and killed her after. The convict shows up after the stabbing to stay with the girl until her death, only to be executed himself for the murder.
