Recap of Unforgotten
Previously on Unforgotten, we saw Cassie and Sunny taking up the case of the murder of schoolgirl Hayley Reid. A girl who vanished in the summer of 1999 and her body is rediscovered by workmen of MI Motorway in London. Four friends of Hayley were suspect. They all returned home the same summer Hayle vanished. One is TV show host Jamie Hollis, second is house guest Chris Lowe, third is the insurance salesman Pete Carr and last Dr. Tim Finch.
The last Dr. Finch has been previously reported for being abusive to elderly patients. Still, there was no evidence that may suggest that he is the killer. He was unsuspected until a speeding ticket from 3 January 2000 is found coming from Middenham to London. The suspicion rises and eventually, Dr. Finch is put under arrest.
Dr. Tim Finch’s house goes under evaluation thoroughly and A scrunchie, a necklace, and underwear are found. Dr. Finch confesses those are his daughters but the DNA check tells a completely different story. The DNA examination reveals that those things belong to Alison Baldwin. A case dating back to 1997 where Alison Baldwin, a 14-year-old girl was found raped and strangely to death.
After the revelations are made, Dr. Finch confesses his murders which shook Cassie to the core. It hits Cassie to an emotional trauma which sees her taking a leave from the job for a while. The show closes in with Cassie and Sunny taking flowers to Hayley’s memorial.
