you haven't been able to find his body.

Is that correct?


I'm gonna go for a run.

Hey, Sarge.

Some duty you pulled.

Actually, I didn't pull it.

I put in for it.

Thought the case might be interesting.

Anybody been around asking questions?

Nah, just a bunch of kids.

Well, keep your eyes open.

Someone might want to come

back and inspect their work.

You really think you're gonna figure out

what happened to this kid?

I'm gonna try like hell.

Well, it suggests that the boy

was literally shoved

into the box post-mortem.

It's definitely not your son, Tom.

I've given you the evidence you need.

That may be so, Detective, but still,

the conviction on one crime

was overturned on appeal

and the government is now considering

commuting Rogianni's death sentence.

And so you've come to

voice your opposition

to this committee.

Is that correct?

Tommy was my son, my responsibility,

and Bert Rogianni took him from me.

50 years is a long time.

People remember.

People know.

# Lonely me #

# But I'm afraid #

# So afraid #

# Just say you love me #

Sorry to keep you waiting, Matt.

It's all right, Bill.

Why do I feel like

I'm being called into

the principal's office?

I got to be straight with you, Matt.

We're not in high school anymore.

Defaulting on a loan isn't like

being sent to Mrs. Johnson's detention.

Bill, I'm gonna make

a payment real soon.

I hear you can't find a job.

Well, it's not just me.

There's no work in this town.

Maybe you should

try looking elsewhere.

I can't.

Not with Pearl's illness gettin' worse

and needin' to be there for John.

I need to be as close

to home as possible.

I can't lose that house.

It's the only thing

holding my family together.

If this bank forecloses

now, we'll have nothing.

I can't cover for you anymore, Matt.
