You Can'T Try A Dead Man
As Jeff hitchhiked across the country, his mind was focused on getting clean, sober, and starting over, again. At 27-years old, Jeff had been in and out of trouble most of his life. He began drinking at the age of nine and using hard drugs in his late teens. He couldn't seem to leave it behind even after four stints in treatment and two in prison. But, while planning how to get his life back on track, events unfolded that would dash his hopes and dreams to pieces.
Unbeknownst to Jeff, his roommate had been murdered the morning he left town, and Jeff deemed the likely suspect.
