Storyline

In the small Oregon town in which she lives, Helen Carleton is shot dead point blank four times execution style outside her pet store. There are no eyewitnesses. She is survived by her husband, Nick Carleton, and their three children. After three months, Detective Joe Moran, the lead investigator on the case, officially closes it unsolved, which doesn't sit well with the family. However, he is still working on the case unofficially as he believes that Nick arranged her murder. As such, he asks the eldest Carleton offspring, high school senior Alex Carleton, to assist him on the case, which is against the law as she is still a minor, who would not be under the guidance of her guardian. He doesn't initially tell Alex why he needs her help, but Alex is more than willing to provide whatever assistance she can to catch her mother's killer. When Detective Moran eventually tells Alex his belief about Nick, she is initially reluctant to "spy" on her father. But Nick's behavior - getting rid ... Written by Huggo

Basic TV movie
25 November 2017 | by davidslisteningSee all my reviews

I watched it because of the story line. It is supposed to be based on a true life story but I have found nothing online about the incident. The film was a typical TV film and those who are judging it cant compare it to a 'real' movie'. Its like buying a budget phone and comparing it to the latest iPhone. The reviewer though who slated the cast except for Josie Davis gives a very interesting take on it seeing that the only reference to her being in the film seems to be from him. Not listed in the cast list as far as I can see and if you google it the only references to her in the film are from him.
