The blood stained clothes, injured had of Dave makes him a suspect in the murder of Katie which he did not commit. The cause of his hand injury is fighting with a child molester which he tells his wife but she doubts the information leading to death.

Even though Dave is not involved in the murder of Katie, he pays the price because of the doubt of the wife and the friend Jimmy. In the conclusion of the film, the truth comes out, but it is too late because Jimmy has killed Dave for the death of Katie.

The abduction of Dave during his childhood years leads to negative emotions against child molesters. The true feeling of Dave is revealed in the action taken when he met a child molester later in life leading to the attack of the molester and the consequent doubt as a result of coming home with blood stained clothes.
