Dave was the last one to see Katie alive, Sean is the first detective on the scene of her murder and Jimmy makes it his mission to find the person responsible for her death. Jimmy conducts his own investigation against Sean's request for him to stay out of it and let the detectives do their jobs. Everyone is a suspect, including Dave and Katie's boyfriend Brendan Harris. Jimmy leaves no stone unturned looking for his daughter's killer. With the help of the community and his gut instincts Jimmy won't stop until he gets the answers he is looking for.
