When gentle, community-minded Mark Mariani is found stomped to death, Detective Dave Sweet (portrayed by Vincent Walsh) wonders who would be motivated to do something so vicious. "This case brought me face to face with something terrible," says the veteran Calgary detective.
As he digs deeper, clues at the crime scene lead him to discover a dark, hate-filled community within this quiet neighbourhood — but what has it got to do with Mariani’s murder?
It takes the clever use of social media and an undercover operation to solve this 2010 murder.
