8:30pm – Saturday, September 18 on ABC1
Police called to a burglary at the home of Fiona and Howard Walsh find their dog brutally slain. Neighbours say the couple is in Spain on holidays.
While it appears to be just a break in, Crime Scene Investigator Eddie Olosunje (Jason Barnett) reveals the house alarm has been disabled and the safe opened.
Their car is missing and they are not answering their mobile phones either.
Fears escalate when the couple’s car is later found burnt out on a nearby field with their luggage still on board.
DS Stevie Moss (Lucy Speed) questions the Walsh’s son Rory (Stuart Laing), who has a prison record. He admits to stealing money from his parents’ safe, but denies having anything to do with their disappearance.
Police discover the couple never did catch their flight to Spain, and someone is systematically withdrawing money from their account at ATMs in the city. When cameras reveal it’s Howard Walsh, police set a trap, but a terrified Walsh gets away. When they review the footage, Sgt.
Stone (Sam Callis) identifies a man standing in close proximity at every ATM Walsh uses.
