When 57-year-old Bruce Cucchiara was gunned down in the parking lot of a New Orleans East apartment complex in 2012, his murder devastated his family and stumped law enforcement. The father and business man seemed to be well-liked and on a positive path as he coasted toward retirement. He was also worth $5 million in life insurance.

For more than a year, CounterClock’s Delia D’Ambra has investigated the case and unraveled a web of bizarre information and circumstances about Bruce’s life and those who benefitted from his death. The geographical and political setting of the murder have a dark history of corruption, fraud and violence, and at every turn, Delia discovers Bruce’s complicated business life may have put him in the crosshairs of several bad actors. From allegations of a setup and ties to organized crime, to Bruce being a key witness in a multi-million-dollar lawsuit, to random robbery…each scenario is something the New Orleans Police Department can’t rule out. Now, 11 years after his brutal slaying, the questions still remain: who murdered Bruce? Why was he even in New Orleans East? Where is the murder weapon?

Delia has discovered new information, tracked down witnesses and revealed secrets within the victim’s closest circle that will blow this unsolved case wide open. CounterClock Season 5 is the most extensive and explosive investigation to date with more than two dozen interviews and over a thousand documents that tell a stranger-than-fiction story about a very real crime.
