The Iberville Parish Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate the homicide of Eugenie Boisfontaine and the detectives comb through evidence to search for clues of a motive.
After forensic evidence from a body in a barrel is uncovered, Rodie Sanchez prepares to investigate a second cold case -- the disappearance of Curtis "Cochise" Smith, a young black man from Iberville Parish, Louisiana, who went missing in 1991. The main suspect in his disappearance is a local businessman, Tommy Francise.
Detectives continue searching for physical evidence related to the John Doe in the barrel. While waiting for DNA results from a tooth found on the body, they turn their focus to Tommy Francise and sift through remaining pieces of the barrel in hopes of finding other clues.
With no body and only a confession, the detectives continue to search for physical evidence linking lead suspect Tommy Francise to the homicide of Curtis "Cochise" Smith.
With a search warrant in hand, the Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office gears up to serve the warrant and search the suspect Tommy Francise's home.
In order to establish Tommy Francise's patterns for the prosecutor, Rodie Sanchez reopens the homicide case of George Barrett, whose murder was similar to Curtis "Cochise" Smith's. Rodie always suspected Tommy, who was George's employer, but he could never prove it.
The team feels confident they have enough evidence to make an arrest and put Tommy Francise behind bars. They prepare their case and present it to the district attorney's office.
Tommy Francise is put in custody and is charged with two counts of second-degree murder for the homicides of Curtis "Cochise" Smith and George Barrett.
