This is a “rewind” back to season one, episode eight called, “Blind Love” (10/22/2013). This is a cable TV show & due to the nature of the subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised. We follow a former prosecutor named Kelly Siegler & real crime scene investigator (CSI) Yolanda McClary, as they open a cold homicide case.
Kelly & Yolanda head to Seagraves, Texas to reopen a cold case homicide from March 25, 2008. Rocky Bryant was brutally beaten when he entered a fertilizer plant where he worked. The killer waited behind a door in the plant for Rocky whose legs were completely broken. He was still alive when the paramedics arrived, but died 5 hours later.
Everybody knows everybody in the small town of Seagraves & Rocky’s murder is the only homicide in the town’s history. Suspect number one is Patricia Graves who knew when Rocky worked & where. She was given a polygraph test & confessed to having an affair. She then accused her lover Luis Villareal as Rocky’s killer. Luis denied at first that he knew Roberta who became the second suspect.
Martell Graves became the third suspect who is Roberta’s son. He stood to inherit money from Rocky’s death. Kelly believes that if Roberta was angry at Rocky because she always did drugs. She probably told Martell when & where Rocky worked. They interview Frederick Bryant who is one of Rocky’s sons. He’s been lost emotionally since his dad was killed.
The detectives retrace the entire crime scene, interview all the suspects, plus a witness who says he saw a Latino male on the early morning of the crime. The witness, Mr. Singleton had a stroke in 2008, but he remembers it clearly five years later.
How did the suspect get inside the plant? When did he/she know when Rocky would go to work? Did Patricia hire someone to kill Rocky? You can watch “Blind Love” over at the website “YouTube.”
