FRIDAY 2 DECEMBER 2016
Teenager Ellie Patterson (Macy Nyman) dies after her car skids out of control and hits a wall.
Jane and Davey realise that she’s the niece of their school friend Cath Lowe (Kate Miles) and have to break the sad news. Later at the mortuary Davey reveals to Ellie’s mother Debbie (Emma Handy) that Ellie was actually the passenger - someone else was driving.
Debbie accosts Ellie’s boyfriend Nick (Stefan Healy) who denies seeing Ellie that night and says she must have been with someone else. At the police station Davey tells Jane that Ellie’s car was wiped of prints - whoever was with her knew what they were doing.
Jane shows Davey the results of Ellie’s forensic post-mortem: if she’d stayed in the car she might have survived, but she was moved, which caused her right lung to collapse.
Whoever pulled her out of the car effectively killed her…
