Plot Synopsis

THE FIRST 48: DRUGS KILL features updates on cases from THE FIRST 48, including all-new interviews with the detectives involved with the case. On Monday, January 4, 2016 from 8-10pm ET/PT, A&E premiered two back-to-back episodes with the stories:

"Dropped Call" (Jan 4 at 8pm): In Tucson, a young man is found shot to death on the street. Detectives Bill Hanson and Mike Carroll follow two clues that could lead to a suspect -- a dropped cell phone and a pawnshop slip tucked in the victim's pocket.

"Blood Money" (Jan 4 at 9pm): When Tucson Detectives John Dorer and Kathi Kelley arrive at the murder scene of a young man gunned down behind an apartment complex, their investigation is hampered by hostility from the victim s friends. Detectives think the friends know more than they are telling, but will they be able to get the friends to cooperate in order to find the killer?
