Season 2 | Episode 2: The Second Chance

202 - Sep 27, 2018

“The Louise Ellis case was the most complex, most difficult case that I ever investigated. Every day I was wondering, ‘What else can we do? What have we done wrong?’ I actually became obsessed with this case.”

When Louise Ellis fails to return home after visiting her ex-boyfriend, her husband, Brett Morgan goes to great lengths to try and find her.

Her car is abandoned on the side of the road with all her belongings still inside, but she’s nowhere to be found. Is she alive or dead? Did she run away? Was she kidnapped? Was she murdered?

With no body, no signs of foul play, and no evidence left behind, Detective Pulfer (played by David James Elliott) makes an unorthodox decision to have a civilian go undercover to figure out what happened to Louise.
