July 26, 1993. Llanharry, Wales. 65-year old Harry Tooze and his 67-year old wife, Megan Tooze, are both shot to death at their remote farm before their bodies are hidden inside the cowshed. The investigation eventually focuses on Jonathan Jones, the boyfriend of the Toozes’ daughter, and after his thumbprint is found on a saucer inside the farmhouse, he is charged with the murders. While Jonathan is found guilty of the crime and sentenced to life imprisonment, the Court of Appeal deems his conviction to be unsafe and he is released from prison one year later. If Jonathan Jones was not responsible for the murders of Harry and Megan Tooze, then who was? And what could their motive have been? For the first time, “The Trail Went Cold” explores an unsolved cold case from Wales, which is considered to be one of their baffling crimes ever.
