Previous On One Deadly Mistake
The seventh episode of One Deadly Mistake takes us to the beautiful Florida Meritt Island and that green paradise. Until the gruesome discovery was found on July 23, 2000. At around 4:00 p.m., the body of a young woman who was tied and naked with her face down was found in the Indian River by a local district judge. He reported local authorities who arrived at the scene. After analyzing, the girl was found tied with rope and duct tape almost all over her face.
The autopsy report identified the victim as Misty April Morse. Misty’s old man was devastated by the news. Even though they were in grief, they did not lose hope and decided to help the police find the killer. Misty’s mother reveals that she saw Misty three days ago before leaving to go somewhere. Before leaving, he made a brief call to someone on his phone.
Detective Harell and his team try to trace the phone but unlike today, in the 2000s it was not an easy job. So, apart from the telephone, the police focused their attention on other aspects that were found near his body. That included screen tape and a perfectly fastened cow hook wouldn’t tell anyone it was being used by someone in the navy.
The investigation continues further with Police asking Misty’s family about her love interest which leads them to say Teddy Underwood is a convict. After interviewing him, they received an interview they didn’t expect. Underwood tried to help as much as he could. The department took a sample of his DNA because he didn’t have much Misty to know about. He even allowed them to search his house which after doing a search drove Underwood out. On the other hand, forensics finds the hair of a dog at the crime scene.
The next suspect is Bobby Cooper. Before his death, Bobby had been approaching Misty for a while and going on dates with her. She liked him enough and thought he was the one even though she rejected him several times. The officers interview Bobby and all they get is a sad story about how much he cares for him. They ransacked his home. Harell’s Detection is looking for duct tape, boats, plastic bags, dogs and military experience. Bobby apparently owned nothing but an old boat.

Before leaving Bobby’s house, Bobby gave the officers new instructions. Misty’s ex-boyfriend Brent with whom he had an abusive relationship. Apparently, it was revealed that he had some Navy experience. After investigating Brent Huck, the officers discover that he failed the navy and was the captain of the ship and had been in a relationship with Misty a year ago which was quite rough. Brent, 28, sees him as a paid friend. She last spoke to him a few days ago when rumors spread that she was pregnant with her baby. He nagged her on a phone call at midnight and then apologized. The admission confirms the last phone call Misty received was none other than Brent.
Brent Huck’s home is searched and many items are found. Three dogs, duct tape like screen tape, a leash matching those found at the scene, a plastic bag that matches the one at the scene, and finally Brent has military experience. However, the DA refused the case to be brought to court citing circumstantial evidence.
The officers then used technology that was on the rise at the time. They decided to use Dog DNA to determine if the Brent dogs at the scene proved successful. After 28 months of continuous hard work, Brent was charged with Misty’s murder, and justice was served. In this episode, he one of the killer mistakes the killer made was bringing his dog.
