WISH-TV investigates the unsolved murder of a young black woman who was killed on a main street in Martinsville, a predominantly white Indiana town, in the 1960s. The reporters uncover the name, the date of birth and the social security number of the prime suspect from an envelope kept by the victim's family. The team finds that the suspect - James Richard Smith - whom the police never went after, had a record with the Missouri Department of Corrections. A hidden camera captures a video of the suspect, supposed to be dead for decades, disapproving a claim the police made for a long time. The report also discovers that police have taken new blood and DNA samples from the suspect.
