When he went to the bedroom to check on her, he was shocked to discover she was dead. Hannah doesn’t know what to believe-only that exonerating a suspect who can’t remember is almost impossible, especially since Lonnie’s brother, Detective Rick Murphy, and Lonnie’s partner, Chief Detective Mike Kingston, have been taken off the case.
