Buried Treasure (Episode #406)

KQED Plus: Fri, Apr 26, 2013 -- 7:00 PM

When Brian Lane's dog Scampi digs up a body during his routine walk on the common, the team finds itself in a very unusual situation before the investigation has even begun. With a confession. Janice Small, the widow of a notorious criminal, admits to killing her husband's lover as soon as she hears news of the discovery of a corpse. Only further investigation reveals that the skeleton is 600 years old, so does the common hide the grim remains of more than one victim?

Powerhouse (Episode #405)

KQED Plus: Fri, Apr 19, 2013 -- 7:00 PM

The team reinvestigates the 1950s murder of Frederick Tully, a young wages clerk at Battersea Power Station. Patrick Dunne was hung for Tully's murder, but his granddaughter, Hannah is waging a campaign to get Dunne posthumously pardoned. The discovery of a suitcase of used fivers in the attic of the former Tully home sheds new light on the case, revealing a possible blackmail plot. And when Sir Edward Chambers, the key witness against Dunne, retracts his evidence, the team has reason to question the original investigation. But with Hannah reluctant to cooperate with the police, it is left to Gerry Standing to charm her mother, June, in order to gain an insight into the case, which Standing takes a little too literally.

Nine Lives (Episode #404)

KQED Plus: Fri, Apr 12, 2013 -- 7:00 PM

A family feud erupts when a rich, lonely old woman, Dorothy Hepple, is found dead in her home, leaving all her money and property to her beloved cats, rather than her nephew Harry, and niece Caroline. Her body remained undiscovered for two weeks and the cause of death was undetermined, but the fact that her cats were deliberately locked in the house with her body, makes Jack Halford suspicious. There appears to have been no love lost between the late Ms Hepple and her neighbour Tim Cuswell, and while her carer Dale seems to have been devoted to her, his motives are questionable.

Ducking and Diving (Episode #403)

KQED Plus: Fri, Apr 5, 2013 -- 7:00 PM

When an armoured security van is found at the bottom of a lake, a link is made to Michael Dudley who disappeared 17 years ago. Michael's disappearance coincided with the murder of Marie Sinclair. With the discovery of the van revealing that it was ransacked whilst underwater, and with Marie's murder remaining unsolved, the team decides to reopen the case. Andrew Sinclair (Marie's husband and owner of the security firm and the chief suspect at the time) continues to insist he is entirely innocent, but his story doesn't quite add up. A visit to the new owner of the security firm, Steve Palmer, doesn't provide Gerry Standing with records he was hoping to find, but it does result in Palmer making the cash-starved Standing an offer he can't refuse. Brian Lane looks into the dive clubs that would have had access to the lake over the years, which leads him to diving instructors Martin Viner and Trisha, but that appears to be another dead end. Frustrated by the pace of the investigation, Pullman decides to make the dive herself to take a closer look at the van. It's a risky strategy, but it pays off when she finds the murder weapon on the van and the team is able to trace it back to Sinclair. But just when the team finally believes it is getting closer to solving the case, a key witness is murdered.
