A three-year-old boy is found wandering the streets. Two dead bodies are discovered inside an apartment.
Detective Don Forgan forms a close bond with the young witness of a horrific double murder. “I'm gonna try and catch the bad man,” he promises.
Looking back on the most disturbing case of his career, he says, "it nearly broke me.”
What made this case unique?
This case gave insight into the fact that the lack of a palm print registry was a roadblock to identifying the killer. In 2013, the RCMP created a palm print registry similar to a fingerprint registry.
