Samuel L. Jackson is the killer. He killed all of Ashley Judd's lovers, as well as her parents, because he did not want her to end up being like her mother. Samuel L. Jackson was her father's partner and he informed her dad that his wife was a nymphomaniac which sent her old man insane. Samuel L. Jackson also had an affair with Judd's mother and took offense to her behavior so much so that he killed her and her lovers. Also ashamed that he destroyed his partner's marriage and shattered his sanity, he decided to put Judd's poppa out of his misery...the only way he knew how. Ashley Judd secretly transmits Sam's confession on a mobile allowing her old partner Richard T Jones to track them down. When he tries to shoot Andy Garcia as he (Sam) is disgusted at him over accidentally 'OD'ing his original partner...Judd shoots him point blank in the chest where he falls off the docks. The film closes on him drifting on the ocean surface surrounded by seals...as the cops look on.
