A new witness comes forward in the murder of 18 year-old Justin King. Justin had been missing for several months before his body was found but the pathologist determined he had been dead for no more than a week. He had also been tortured. Heidi, now 18 herself, tells the police that Justin had been living on a commune and that she saw him a week or so before he died. From all accounts, Justin simply left the commune one day and was never seen again. Sandra isn't buying it however and believes one of the commune's residents was involved in his death. Brian meanwhile is struggling with his alcoholism and may be looking for help. Written by garykmcd

When Heidi is being interviewed, her hair is over her right eye, then in the closer shot, it's tucked behind her ear, then it's back to where it was. The intervening shots do not show any movement that could have done this. See more »

Justin King 19 found dead wrapped in plastic
3 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

A young man is found tortured and dead. Justin King was found dead in a plastic bag with many wounds.

His mother passes out pictures by a school every Tuesday for 2 years and a young girl recognized him. The mother wants to find out who killed her son. UCOS talks to the girl that knew him. She lives in a commune with her father and a bunch of other nuts. They use drugs and grow drugs and one man goes around naked and also eats at the table with the commune people. Sandra and Brian have to eat with the commune people to get answers to questions. At times you see the naked guy with no shirt on and a clear view of his butt from the back in more than one scene. I found this episode gross and offensive.

Lots of things going on. Justin's mother talks about her son and she mutters and has and English accent that is hard to understand. Brian is thinking of drinking again and is tempted. Gerry's daughter is mad at him but at the end they make up. That was the only nice thing in the episode. Justin was having sex with a 16 year old girl at the commune with her father's approval.

In the end the person accused of killing Justin does not admit it but nothing was ever brought how or if that person tortured even though it is brought up in the beginning.Gerry describes how he thinks Justin was killed and locked up and that the killer lost it then kills Justin then Gerry makes this comment "but I can't believe you meant to kill him" yeah right Gerry.

It seem like the people in this episode did not have any morals. They okay-ed each other's behavior and more. Two friends of Justin lived above a pimp that would beat his females. They ignored the beating and did nothing. Wasted people a lot like today.
