Detectives Hank Veverka and Tom Armelli are called to a possible crime scene. The coroner arrives and finds that the victim's body shows signs of blunt force trauma to the head. While still on scene, the detectives respond to a call from a woman who claims that she was watching the news story of the crime and she believes that the body they found may be her nephew--who had been missing since the previous night. When Detectives Veverka and Armelli arrive at the woman's house, she tells them that she had seen a trail of blood leading upstairs to her nephew's bedrooms the day before. She also reveals that her nephew and his brother have a troubled past, and detectives piece together the evidence to discover what happened.
