Plot summary[]

In Chipping Sodbury, England, Graham Backhouse was a farmer who wasn't well received by his community. On two occasions, Graham reported death threats. In 1984, when his wife Margaret went to use Graham's car to run errands, a bomb ignited when she started it which nearly killed her.

Soon after, police responded to a call from the farm, where they found that Graham had shot and killed his next door neighbor claiming self-defense. Using forensic science, investigators found that Graham had actually manipulated the crime scene, fabricated the death threats, and planted the bomb, all to benefit from his wife's life insurance.
