The Night That Didn't End

For those who've lost a loved one to murder, the horrifying memories can play in an endless loop. These painful recollections can also contain critical clues that help detectives piece together the final hours of the victim's night – one that didn't end.

This emotional series brings to the forefront the raw emotion that lives in the wake of a homicide, through the eyes of those closest to the events.

Like the victims' loved ones, detectives also live and breathe every detail surrounding the days before and after a murder.

It is ultimately up to them to create a timeline using these fractured memories and analyse important clues to find out what really happened to the victim, even if it means bearing witness to sheer horror along the way.
