In December 2001, the Connelly family of Ottawa was given the worst possible news that their 22-year-old son John, a third-year university student, was dead. Police told them that their son had taken his own life by jumping off the roof of his 10-storey apartment building. The Connellys could not believe that John would kill himself. So they began asking questions about their son's death and soon found themselves doing the investigation they say the police had not done. Bob McKeown tells the tale of one family's fight to find the truth behind the official story.

Originally aired: Jan. 18, 2006
