The couple were owners of a local tropical fish store, there didn't seem to be any motive. As the only witness, their autistic son's ability to remember events with numerical sequence was always the same regarding his parents. Detective Valens showed a compassion and patience to learn to communicate with the autistic son's abilities that brought forth the clues to unravel this baffling case. Written by

At the beginning of "Saving Sammy", the murdered couple and their two children are named "Harding". By the end of the episode, however, their name has inexplicably changed to "Harris".

I discovered this while watching with the captions turned on; I noticed that each time an actor said "Harding" the captions read "Harris". See more
