Suspect is a 2019 comedy mystery film by Grayson Taylor. It is the first film in the Suspect film duology.
Thirteen-year-old Colin Cruise is the arrogant and self-centered son of the Cruise family, owners of the massively successful CruiseTech Industries. On a vacation in upstate New York, both of his parents are mysteriously found dead—and Colin thinks he knows exactly who the murderer is. Fueled by rage and a twisted need to avenge his parents, Colin embarks on a cross-country journey to hunt down the man who murdered his mother and father, aided by his partner Jessica. But it becomes increasingly dangerous as the government launches a search for him, misled to think that Colin himself murdered his parents. Racing to find the murderer, while running from the authorities, Colin and Jessica find themselves in a situation unlike anything they've encountered before. But amidst this journey hides a secret that Colin doesn't know—a secret that could cost him everything.
