But it surely’s not lengthy earlier than she finds out that her one result in fixing Sherry’s homicide — which has been haunting her since day one — can be gone.
To not overlook, Jackie’s closest buddy Junior McCarthy (Shane Harper) was with Osito when the henchman ended Krista’s life with repeated blows of a hammer to her face.
