Marie Parent is in her 70s and lives in a small town near Glasgow.Despite the retirement for years, but every now and then have the producers from the United States and Canada to disturb her, hope her twenty years ago in an entertaining experience made into a film: in 1995, Marie read in the newspaper is a sensation of Canadian women’s disappearance, detective never when she is angry, his investigation, every police uncovered the whole unable to solve unsolved.It was the only case in her life, but it became a legend in Canadian criminal investigation history…Her story, let’s start at the beginning.One day in 1995, Marie, having just made breakfast for her daughter, picked up the newspaper and saw the disappearance of Louise Ellis, a 46-year-old writer who had become a national sensation. Her husband, Brett Morgan, and the local police had searched for her for two months.The police suspect Louise was killed, but they don’t have any real leads.As Marie finishes reading the news, she has a spooky idea: she will investigate the case herself and find Louise.Marie had moved to Canada only a few years earlier, having run an inn in Scotland that had nothing to do with investigating crimes.Of course, she also is not pure passer-by armour, she has been interested in criminal investigation for many years, also had taught oneself a few courses, but limited knowledge, plus had never actually run, go detecting a famous whole country like this, the police all helpless missing (murder) case?!But Marie is determined: “I have no tolerance for cases of abuse and mutilation of women, and if there is [murder], I feel responsible!”Without much hesitation, Marie immediately got up and went to Ottawa, where the crime took place, where she found Brett and volunteered to help him find his missing wife…In fact, Marie believed that the main suspect was Brett, the husband.Brett seemed very sincere and gentle, and his speech was so soothing that many people were attracted to his gentle charm.The first conversation was very formal and, with Brett’s permission, Marie recorded it on the spot. She got a glimpse of their history and immediately realized that the case was more complicated than she had expected…Louise and Brett met many years ago, fell in love at first sight and got married less than a year later.Louise also had a child with her ex-boyfriend, and they kept in touch. Over the years, Louise would occasionally go to her ex-boyfriend’s house to spend weekends with the child.On April 23, 1995, Louise went out to her ex-boyfriend’s house. After some time, Brett received a phone call from Louise’s ex-boyfriend. He said That Louise had not shown up and had been unable to reach Brett.Brett called the police, who, along with Brett and a large number of people in the community, found Louise’s yellow jeep not far from her ex-boyfriend’s house, with her personal effects inside.We’ve searched the woods, the river, and there’s still no sign of Louise.The police were so short staffed that Brett had to put up posters everywhere and offer rewards on TV and newspapers. It soon became a national sensation. Marie read about the case in the newspapers and volunteered to investigate.She reassured Brett that she believed Louise was still alive and would do anything to help find her…The previous investigations didn’t yield many useful leads, and Marie didn’t expect Ottawa police to find her very quickly.It turned out that the police had not been able to remove the suspicion of Brett, installed a listening device in his home, accidentally listening to the “private detective” Marie came to investigate, decided to find her to find out the situation.Ottawa police were taken aback when they heard Marie had no experience in crime and was just an amateur.She was told it was dangerous, but Marie’s reasoning impressed the police and they decided to work with her immediately.Marie told the police that she had not seen any feminine toiletries or Louise’s jewellery in Brett’s house and assumed that Brett had probably sold all of Louise’s jewellery – this was not a man desperate to find his wife, desperate to clear her tracks while she was still “missing”.So Marie decides: “Brett is Louise’s killer!”However, inference alone was no arrest, and the police negotiated with Marie, agreeing that she would continue to approach Brett in the name of investigating the case, wear a wire and record their conversation.Marie, it turns out, isn’t entirely intuitive either, and she quickly displays some professionalism.She went to the scene to see a train, a yellow jeep that was abandoned, she saw a car in the intact carefully, Louise’s belongings, acutely aware of again, these items are very deliberately, too neat, accidentally thrown away here don’t like, “this live like someone deliberately put out,As opposed to Louise leaving the car at random…”Marie learned from the police that the other suspect, Louise’s ex-boyfriend, had a strong alibi, and that Brett was in fact the main suspect.The crux of the case was how to get hard evidence that Brett had killed his wife. It seemed that the only two options were to find the body or Brett’s own confession.Over the next few days, Marie continued to visit Brett occasionally to find out more about the case and to try to find out what was going on between Brett and his wife, Louise.As they got to know each other better, Brett let his guard down. In a casual conversation, he revealed to Marie that he owed his wife tens of thousands of dollars and that she had been pressing him for the money. He wasn’t happy about it…This is a big lead!Marie immediately went to the bank where Louise had opened her account and found out that the situation was far more serious than Brett had described. Before his wife disappeared, Brett not only owed her tens of thousands of dollars, but also forged her signature to write checks and withdraw money many times.With the help of the police, Marie was able to find out that Louise’s credit card had been used to make a withdrawal from an ATM on the afternoon of the day she disappeared. The ATM camera caught Brett swiping the card.Now, more and more clues are pointing to Brett, and so is his suspicion.In order to dispel Brett’s suspicions, Marie suggested to the police that they focus their investigation on Louise’s ex-boyfriend, give Brett the impression that he had been given the green light by the police, and even smoke smoke saying that there was strong new evidence pointing to Louise’s ex-boyfriend.Brett was almost visibly happy with this new information and became more and more active in providing “clues.”On the other hand, to the surprise of both the police and Marie, The prime suspect, Brett, seemed to be in love with her.Brett began to show more than his fair share of affection for her, often making intimate gestures that he could not suppress and often speaking from his heart.Marie, feeling the time was beginning to come, began to trick Brett into telling him where Louise’s body was buried…Marie asked Brett tentatively, “If the ex-boyfriend really did kill her, where do you think he buried the body?From a man’s point of view…”Speaking of this, Brett seems to be excited. He pretends to simulate the murderous mentality of Louise’s ex-boyfriend, but fills in many details about the murder and burial of the body as if he had been there.After he finished, probably realizing that he had said too much, Brett explained that he had studied the criminal mind and guessed something like this…Marie said in a calm voice that she would refer to Brett’s analysis, knowing that the police were listening.At that moment, Brett looked at her deeply and leaned over to kiss her.Marie resisted at that moment, but in order not to reveal herself, she kissed Brett back.This unnerves the police, who think Marie is a bit unreliable and has an affair with the suspect.!Marie insists that she knows exactly what she’s doing. She has only one goal: to find Louise’s body and catch the person who killed her!After much discussion, the police chose to believe Marie.Marie suggested that now that Brett had fallen in love with her, he arrange for him to reveal the location of the body.Marie, the police, the bank and Brett come up with a plan. They inform Brett that he can transfer his ex-wife Louise’s property to him, but they need to find her body to prove that she is not missing, but dead…Brett thought about it and agreed. He said he would try to find Louise as soon as possible. He said he would rather not have the money than his wife still alive.”If they find a body, we want the police to be ready to arrest Louise’s ex-boyfriend as soon as possible.On July 7, 1995, Brett called Marie to say he had analysed the location of his wife Louise’s body and had decided to take her along for the ride.The pair drove to a wooded suburb where Marie was wearing a tracker, but the police accidentally lost her.As they walked deeper into the woods, Brett suddenly stopped and looked Marie straight in the eye. “You’re not undercover, are you?”Marie forced herself to reply: ‘You don’t believe me?If it’s an undercover job, why don’t you frisk me for bugs?”Brett pretended to fumble her pockets before giving up. He turned to her and said, “I loved you enough to trust you…”They finally reached an unfrequented spot and found a sneaker nearby. Brett said it belonged to his wife.Further away, the remains of a highly decomposed body. On closer inspection, Louise, who had been missing for months…Marie was overcome with emotion, but she continued to accompany Brett through the scene. Brett dropped to his knees in front of the remains, covered his face in pain and began to wail.Marie hugged Brett and began to comfort him…Brett then went to the police station to report that he had found Louise’s body. He was confident that the police were about to take action to arrest Louise’s ex-boyfriend.However, when he did, the police handcuffed him to his wrists.After months of wiretapping and the discovery of Louise’s body, Brett’s murder conviction is almost certain and the truth of the case is finally revealed.The day Louise disappeared, it was Brett who tricked her out, killed her, and dumped her body in the woods.Brett then drove Louise’s jeep to her ex-boyfriend’s house in an attempt to frame him.Brett was eventually found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison!The disappearance that caused a stir in the country was finally solved by Marie, who volunteered to investigate the case with no experience.As part of her undercover protection, Marie was sent to leave Canada and return to her native Scotland for two years, where she eventually hid her reputation and remained for the rest of her life.In the decades since, Marie has not been involved in any other cases, but her first and last case, Louise’s disappearance, has become a legend for the “passer by detective”.Marie’s story has been mentioned over the years, and in recent years, north American film producers have approached her to turn the story into a film.Speaking of the case, Marie still had a lot of mysteries to answer: Did Brett really not know he was being set up?Or did he pretend to be a sucker?Marie thinks: Maybe Brett felt he was being tricked, but love blinded him, and he chose to trust the person he loved.Just as his wife Louise, blinded by love, had chosen to believe that her husband would not murder her…
