The series examined how a 28-year-old Vidalia, Ga., ex-convict with cocaine in his system ended up dead at the bottom of the city attorney's swimming pool, the flawed police investigation that followed, and the small-town political structure that held no one accountable for the death. The series exposed the shoddy investigation, rampant wiretapping and a drug culture that permeates Middle Georgia. It told the story of a young state police investigator who attempted to get to the bottom of the death, and how she was run out of her job before she could find answers.
