Previously On One Deadly Mistake
The seventh episode of One Deadly Mistake took us to the beautiful Meritt Island of Florida and the green paradise it is. Until a horrific discovery was made on July 23rd, 2000. Around 4.00 pm, a dead body of a young female bound and naked with face down is found in the Indian River by a local circuit judge. He reports the local authorities who arrive on the scene. Upon analyzing, the girl was found tied in with a rope and duct tape almost all over her face.
The autopsy report identified the victim as Misty April Morse. Misty’s parents were devasted upon hearing the news. Even though they were in grief they didn’t lose hope and decided to help the police to find her killer. Misty’s mother revealed that she saw Misty three days ago before she left to go somewhere. Before leaving she had a brief call with someone on her phone.
Detective Harell and his team tried to track down the phone but unlike today, in the 2000s it wasn’t an easy job. So, apart from the phone, the police focused on the other aspects found near her body. It included a sail tape and a perfectly tied cow hitch not would tell it was used by someone in the navy.
The investigation went on further with Police asking Misty’s family about her love interests which led them to Teddy Underwood was a convicted felon. Upon interviewing him, they received an interview they weren’t expecting. Underwood tried to help as much as he can. The department took his DNA samples as he forensic didn’t have much Misty to figure out. He even allowed them to search his house which upon searching ruled Underwood out. On the other hand, forensics found a hair of a dog on the crime scene.
The next suspect in line was Bobby Cooper. Before her death, Bobby had been approaching Misty for a while and went on a few dates with her. He was quite into her and thought she was the one although she rejected him a couple of times. The officers interviewed Bobby and all they got was a sob story of how much he deeply cared about her. They searched his house. Detect Harell was looking for duct tape, a boat, a plastic bag, a dog, and some military experience. Bobby apparently had nothing of it except an old boat.

The confession confirmed the last phone calls Misty received were from none other than Brent.

Still, the DA rejected the case to take to the court declaring evidence as circumstantial.
The Officers went on to use up-and-coming technology at that time. They decided to use Dog DNA to determine if it was Brent’s dog at the scene which proved to be successful.
