After a pregnant Rebecca Townley is found run over and left for dead, the detectives learn that the baby's father may be a married politician, and the crime a homicide. As Winters and Jaruszalski begin digging deeper into her past, they are led to a young couple, Adam and Carolyn Yarborough, who seem to know more than they are willing to tell when it comes to Rebecca.
