Camden McCallum, Jr. (son)
In the "Pilot", Camden McCallum, Sr.'s son and heir has been kidnapped, and he is putting considerable pressure on Interim Police Chief Karen Vick to sort the situation out pronto. Cam, Jr. has vanished but a ransom demand has turned up, and after Shawn Spencer's brush with the law in the forms of Head Detective Carlton Lassiter and Junior Detective Lucinda Barry, Chief Vick decides he may be just what she needs. Shawn's eye for detail combined with his best friend Burton "Gus" Guster's pharmaceutical knowledge and nose pick apart the inconsistency in the web of lies woven around them, finally allowing Shawn a 'vision' of what really happened - Cam, Jr. faked his abduction and was accidentally killed by his father in the course of a struggle when the older man found out. Shawn implores the chief to check Cam, Sr.'s wrist for a fresh dog bite, and the man breaks down and confesses.
