Burning Bodies & An Unsolved Case
28 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the first crime case, police in Memphis, Tenn., are called in after firemen discover two dead bodies in a burned truck. People had seen the smoke rising and had called the Fire Department. The bodies - which they don't show on TV - are so badly burned it won't be easy to identify them. However, it is obvious one is male and the other a female. The male has six gold teeth. That helps identify him. What is not obvious until the very end of this case is "why?" In the end, two people were murdered because of a necklace.

En route to solving the case, we meet "Cheeseburger," "L'il Red and assorted other characters. The two above are charged with murder but the guy who actually pulled the trigger in both cases was a man named Deandre. He swears he has nothing to do with it. Yeah, right.

Meanwhile, in Kansas City, Kansas, a man innocently taking out his trash is shocked when he comes across a dead female body lying in the dirt road where the trash is put. He turns out to be a 35-year-old mother of two but is basically a nice person but has gotten mixed up in some bad things, like prostitution and drugs. Because of the latter, the number of suspects is greatly enlarged. It could be anyone. Next to the crime scene was a mattress, a lighter, a condom and four shell casings.

We see all the procedures and the cops get a very good tip on the case. However, when they finally get their guy, he doesn't look like he's the killer. They have to let him go. There is no evidence, and he has a rock-solid alibi.

As of the close of this episode, police are still looking for the woman's killer. The put a Kansas City phone number on the screen for folks in the area who might know something.
