Here's what went down at the #DStvShowcase

Retired homicide detective, Chris Anderson, and criminal defense attorney, Melissa Lewkowicz, re-examine evidence from two different cases.

There is Erick Westervelt, who was love struck, had his heart broken and was then charged with the murder of Timothy Gray.

And then there is murder accused Peter, whose wife Patty Wlasiuk apparently committed suicide and plunged her truck into a lake.

Together Chris and Melissa combine their years of experience to solve the cases that have left family members of the victims, and the accused so desperately in need of the truth. Which one will it be, appeal the case or accept the verdict?
