The wind out here,

out there on the islands.

I remember when we were kids,

Dad would tell us

that if we didn't fasten up our coats,

we'd get blown off our feet and out to sea.

And we believed him.

- Come on. Get 'em out.

- Right, keep moving, folks. Keep moving.

It's one of the Drinkle girls. Little Angela.

I used to see her mum down the school gates.

She'd always ask after Dad.

Wounds like that, it's pretty frenzied.

We should start...



Who is this? Hello?

What'd they say?

It was mumbling, not words.

- More like...

- Like you don't know.

- Come on, Abby!

- Go on, Abby!

Not bad. Excellent. 14.20.

Excellent time today, Maria. Well done.

Good girls.

What are you doing here?

Any girls not with their parents

in the minibus, please.

You must have a parent with you

if you're not coming back to the school.

They closed the junior school,

sent them all home.

Everyone keeps crying.

I didn't know Angela.

I saw her around sometimes, but...

It's stupid. It hurts like I knew her.

It's not stupid.

She was a girl like you. That's enough.

Can Dominic come and stay at the weekend?

Oh, absolutely. I'll bake a cake.

Everyone keeps asking me,

"Is your dad gonna catch the guy who did it?"

I keep telling them I don't know.

I'll catch him, I promise.

- Hey, Joe.

- Yeah?

This anniversary party of yours...

It's not a party.

It's just a couple of drinks.

It's not my idea. It's Lily's idea.

Hang on. Your brother just told us

there's 100 people coming.

Ask him how much it cost.

- It's costing me a bloody fortune.

- Detective Fairburn.

I thought it was more like

an endurance award for Lily.

Been married for 20 years, Saddler.

Last time you were in bed with a woman,

you were being born.

20 years, eh? Poor Lily.

Well, at least I found a woman

to say yes to me when I asked.

I heard the only reason Lily said yes

was because she got the Fairburn treatment

in the interrogation room.

OK, victim was often seen in the

company of one Jason Buliegh,

a man with form.

He did...

He did eight weeks of a nine-month sentence.

Indecent exposure. Fourth offence.

He got out six years ago.

And get this. He's since found Jesus.

- Or Jesus found him.

- That's a long time for him to be quiet.

Speak to me now, Lord, and I will listen.

I will hear you.

Show me the way out of this darkness.

Show me the light.

Lead me out of this darkness.

I know that you are with me.

You will not abandon me.

- What's all the praying about, Jason?

- Little Angela.

Blood alcohol way up there.

The bruising on her lip is at least

12 hours older than the stab wounds.

Take him into holding.

No traces of semen.

No signs of a sexual attack.

Maria, Jason Buliegh on a 420.

She's not a virgin. Tattoo next

to her pubic bone done fairly recently.

Number "4", word "Real".

4Real. What does it mean?

I don't know. Some kind of hopeless

attempt at youth rebellion?

Maybe not so hopeless if you're 12.

This case, little Angela.

It's gonna be a black hole, this one.

Oh, no.

Next time Dad has one of his days

when he"s back with us...

... we can tell him about Buliegh.

Who are you?

Where's my son?

Jason is being questioned.

It's that girl in the news, isn't it?

Little Angela.

- Oh, Jesus.

- She's been here every day.

I took it.

- After you killed her?

- No.

No, three weeks ago.

- You'll have to speak up, Jason.

- Three weeks ago.

She was playing with it in her hand.

She put it down, so I... took it.


Hmm? Why would you take a girl's bangle?

I wanted to help her.

I wanted to pray with it.
