After not seeing each other for nearly 10 years, Rust and Martin meet up again. Rust tells him not to trust the police in the current case. He also tells Marty that he spent 8 years in Alaska working on fishing boats but admits to having been drunk for most of the last 10 years. Since his return to Louisiana in 2010, he’s been investigating their old case. The new evidence he’s come up with points to a connection with the Tuttle schools and a man with scars around his mouth. Marty agrees to help him out and they soon get a lead on the scarred man.
