This episode deals with the rape and death of a young child.

Ten-year-old Holly had been playing with a neighborhood playmate a bit younger than her. When it came time for her friend to go home, Holly didn’t want the little girl to walk back alone. So her mother, Maria, gave her permission to escort her friend home since the walk wasn’t very far, only about six minutes. In fact, it was the same route that Holly took every day to get to school.

By 8:30 , darkness had fallen, and Holly had not arrived home. At first, Maria thought that her daughter must have stayed at her friend’s house to play for a little while, but a quick phone call confirmed that she hadn’t. Family and friends began canvassing the neighborhood. A frantic Maria called the police and reported her daughter missing.

The next morning, a man was walking their dog along the beach when he saw a black nylon duffel bag in the water. Inside that bag, he would find the torso of a young girl wrapped in plastic.
