After a teenage girl is found murdered in a California town, a young woman is forced to prove her brother is innocent of the crime, discovering a disturbing dark side to the community and the hidden identity of the killer.
While Jamie committed a crime by breaking into the cabin, the evidence she found would be admissible since she was not acting as a government agent.
Near the end, the Sheriff says the feds are coming in so it is out of his hands. Federal authorities do not become involved in state crimes such as homicides unless there is a federal tie in such as kidnapping or the crimes have spanned more than one state. Since none of that was the case here, the Sheriff's statement was totally in error.
