D.
? Michael Schaefer, 21-year-old Brooklyn City College student.
What about the girl? She found the body.
Claims that she and the vic left the club she was playing last night and came back to the apartment.
Probably thought it was the luckiest night of his life.
Unfortunately, it was also his last.
Out here in the fields I fight for my meals I get my back into my living Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Hey, stranger.
So you're back.
It's official.
I talked to Sinclair yesterday.
Retirement papers have already been pulled.
Great.
That's great news.
Welcome back.
Oh, hey, Mac.
We missed you.
See, I told you he'd be back.
You did? You didn't say that.
Yeah, I did.
I said he'd be back.
- I said that, but whatever.
- Yeah, no, I said you'd be back.
All right, all right.
Are you two done? We have a dead body here that needs to be processed.
Obvious signs of forced entry.
Probably gonna want to pheno these shards of glass.
There's, uh, no usable prints, and, uh Uh, are you working the crime scene or me? Nah, go ahead.
Do your thing.
I'll just go check on the canvass.
He misses all this.
Yeah.
Why don't you take a deep breath? Relax, all right? Okay.
Do you remember hearing anything? Any yelling? An argument? Someone trying to break in? No.
No, just a gunshot.
I came out of Michael's room, and I I found him on the f-floor.
I-I tried to hold his head up.
I didn't I didn't know what to do.
I'm sorry.
That's all right.
I just I can't believe this is happening.
I can't believe he's dead.
She found him; called it in.
The victim live here alone? Roommate's name is Josh Herman.
Apparently they've been best friends since grade school.
Was he here at the time of the shooting? Not sure.
We're still trying to track him down.
Defensive bruising on the arms.
Here.
Stellate tearing around the wound.
Victim struggled with his attacker before being shot at close range.
Well, we know robbery wasn't a motive.
So what was? I was asleep in Michael's room when it happened.
Michael! Michael! Michael? Oh, my God.
Michael.
Michael.
Just take your time.
I know this must be hard for you.
How long did you know Michael? Only a few weeks.
We met at the the music store where I work.
He was with his roommate Josh.
Sure, they formed later, but the Pistols captured the image.
The sex, the drugs, the rock and roll.
Not the rock and roll.
That's where you're wrong.
But sure, they had the music.
No doubt about it, but the punk sound didn't start with them.
Title goes to the Kinks.
Actually, you're both right.
Image and sound are equally important.
Of course, that also makes you both wrong.
So was the first punk band, then? Easy.
The Ramones.
First to incorporate the sound and the image.
She's right.
Founded right here in Forest Hills, Queens, 1974.
Before the Sex Pistols.
Are you any good? Sound a lot better coming off a set of strings like that, but, um yeah, I know how to get it on.
Miranda, there's a guy in the back that could use a little help.
Sure.
That's what you do and then you do it all the time Do you remember how you treated me? The shoe is on the other foot and now the blind can see You needed me, but you left me Sounds like the two of you really hit it off.
Did Michael and Josh have any problems? No.
You know, they were like brothers, you know.
We found close to $300 in 20s on the floor next to Michael's body.
Did he owe anybody any money that you know of? No.
I mean, if anything, it was the opposite.
He he seemed like he was doing pretty well.
You feel most alone I can't believe you have this song.
You will not be alone Get out.
You bought the Gibson? Just shine a light on me I thought you said you didn't play.
Well, it's not for me; it's for you.
What? Michael, seriously? Ah, it's it's okay.
I wanted to do it.
Hey, look, it doesn't have to mean anything if you don't want it to.
No.
And you will see my shadow No, Michael, it it does.
On every wall It means everything.
And you will see my footprint On every floor That's quite an expensive gift from someone you just met.
He didn't even have to do it.
I was already falling for him.
He was so different from all the guys I'm used to.
He was sweet, genuine.
Honest.
I can't imagine how anyone would want to hurt him.
Tyler, I'm your mama.
I meddle.
That's what I do.
So what's up with the new roommate? What happened to the old one? - 20, 40, 60.
- Mmm.
Yes.
Whoo-hoo! Pleasure doing business with you.
Yeah.
Anybody ever tell you that money cannot buy you happiness? Ah, you want to bet? Okay, never mind.
I'll talk to you at lunch.
Bye.
Okay, what was that all about? What? Sheldon, money.
Oh.
Hawkes had him pegged coming back November 30 or earlier.
Which means you must have had him coming back after November 30.
Uh, kind of, yeah.
What do you mean, kind of? Uh, kind of, as in um, never.
You mean you thought Mac Taylor was never coming back to this crime lab? How come you didn't let me in on this bet? I'd have cleaned up on all you fools.
Ah.
Any word from Flack on the whereabouts of the vic's roommate? Josh Herman? Still in the wind.
You thinking he had something to do with it? Well, possible suspect.
Hopefully not another victim.
They were roommates.
If he did have something to do with it, I'm not sure why he'd have to break the window.
Well, we're sending the photos and physical description to the media, so I'll keep you posted.
Hey.
No "Good to see you, Mac?" Uh, "Welcome back to the lab?" Nothing? I never thought you were gone in the first place.
Mac Taylor.
Now, there's a sight for sore eyes.
It's good to be back, Sid.
So, what's it like? What is what like? On the outside.
You made it, man you were free.
What did that feel like? It felt good.
I'm very happy with what I accomplished.
But yet, here you are, back inside.
It means you're institutionalized.
You realize that, don't you? These walls are funny, you know? First you hate 'em, then you get used to 'em, and pretty soon, you start to depend on 'em.
Sid? Oh.
Yes.
I, uh, confirmed your suspicions regarding the victim's defensive bruising and the close-contact nature of the gunshot wounds.
There was a struggle.
Yes, but on further examination of the body, I found a small entrance wound close to the victim's armpit.
So, what we thought at the scene was a close-contact entrance wound was really an exit wound.
Means there's still a bullet at the crime scene.
I also found a dark smudge on the side of the victim's face.
Took a sample, sent it upstairs.
And what was that you were working on? A piece of skin.
Found it attached to the victim's clothing.
Is that some kind of reptile or a fish? Yes, you're correct.
It's from a reptile.
It's good to be back.
Now, this, I missed.
Adam.
Hey, boss.
Welcome back.
You want to tell me what's going on here? Okay, well I was processing Miranda's shirt for blood.
I found microscopic tears in the fabric.
Could've caught her clothing on something.
The fray pattern should suggest whether or not it was snagged.
In addition to it being snagged, I also found evidence that suggests (grunts) that it was cut.
Now, this, I missed.
Now, all the tests that I've run Adam.
with the wire brush, sandpaper, Hey, boss.
(chuckles) knife, scissors have all resulted Welcome back.
in either fraying or cutting You want to tell me what's going on here? but not both.

I wasn't lying.
The fray pattern should suggest whether or not it was snagged.
I was I was covered in Michael's blood.
In addition to it being snagged, He was still lying there dead.
I also found evidence that suggests I guess I that it was cut.

DANVILLE : Tyler, before I hear about the new roommate, - You don't trust my judgment.

I highly doubt that.
The juvie record's sealed.
Look, I'm sure he's great.
Trespassing and criminal mischief.
I just want to meet him first.
Hmm.
Looks like you guys got something in common.
(sighs) I'm just concerned.
What up? Do you have something for me? Adam, how many college roommates did you have? I do.
Comparative microscopic Uh, whew okay.
analysis results from EDNA.
Let's see, first, Snakeskin? there was Todd, but that ended No indication our vic or his roommate had snakes for pets.
with the whole atomic cat eye incident.
Well, somewhere along the line, Atomic cat eye incident? our vic had a run-in with a boa constrictor.
Yeah, you know, whenlike, someone drinks too much, Pigmentation is a little and they pass out, and you, like, sneak up and Off.
I don't really want to know.
Just ballpark it for me.
Unnatural, even.
Uh 12, I guess.
Mm-hmm.
I'm all over it.
Oh, and by the way, Any of 'em ever get arrested the whole Tyler roommate thing it's gonna be fine.
Todd, and it was for public indecency.
You know, usually people with priors (chuckles) never commit crimes within a five-mile radius Why? What's up? of where they live.
Tyler's moving in with a new roommate.
Oh, get out of here.
Oh, man! You broke the Mom code and looked him up? Well, I didn't get any specifics.
Mac, what would you say if I told you The juvie record's sealed.
I could quadruple your money? Trespassing and criminal mischief.
You trying to talk me back into retirement? Hmm.
Looks like you guys got something in common.
I'd say, it sounds too good be true, not to mention illegal.
I'm just concerned.
Oh, it's definitely illegal.
Do you have something for me? You got five bucks on you? I do.
Comparative microscopic Five bucks? analysis results from EDNA.
This better be good.
Snakeskin? All right, you've got ink, No indication our vic or his roommate had snakes for pets.
auto degreaser, mineral oil, and glass cleaner, okay? Well, somewhere along the line, All four components were detected in a smudge our vic had a run-in with a boa constrictor.
that Sid collected off Michael's body, right? Pigmentation is a little Watch this.
Off.
A little bit of Unnatural, even.
Paper's the real thing.
Mm-hmm.
I'm all over it.
Giving it the right feel.
Oh, and by the way, Thickness, texture.
the whole Tyler roommate thing it's gonna be fine.
Detection pen would work, too.
You know, usually people with priors The watermark and the security strip never commit crimes within a five-mile radius are wrong, but of where they live.
Well, it's for a five, not a 20, Oh, get out of here.
but at least it's there.
(laughs) People don't scrutinize twenties the same way (beeping) as they do hundreds, so it would be easy to pass off.
This could explain why all the twenties were left behind at the crime scene.
Mac, what would you say if I told you Whoever the killer is must have known the bills were fake.
I could quadruple your money? Now we know the real reason for Michael's murder.
You trying to talk me back into retirement? Counterfeit cash.
(laughs quietly) Yo, just spoke to Flack.
I'd say, it sounds too good be true, not to mention illegal.
The apartment search turn up anything? Oh, it's definitely illegal.
Yep auto degreaser, ink jet printer, You got five bucks on you? scanner, glass cleaner, hair dryer Five bucks? everything you need for printing counterfeit money.
This better be good.
Well, the problem is, everything you just listed All right, you've got ink, is also a regular household item, auto degreaser, mineral oil, and glass cleaner, okay? easily explained away.
All four components were detected in a smudge Everything but the scanned image of the $20 bill that Sid collected off Michael's body, right? that was found on the hard drive of Josh's computer.
Watch this.
I want everything brought back to the lab A little bit of and processed for prints.
(whirring) Michael's or anyone else's hands were on that equipment, (computer chirping) I want to know about it.
(computer chirping) At this point, (hissing) all the evidence suggests the counterfeit (printer whirring) money was being printed by the victim's roommate, Josh Herman.
(printer whirring) That explains where all of Josh's money came from.
Paper's the real thing.
Could also explain why he's still in the wind.
Giving it the right feel.
We just don't know if he's the killer, Thickness, texture.
or another victim.
Detection pen would work, too.
According to Flack, all the witnesses at the club The watermark and the security strip saw Josh throwing a lot of money around.
are wrong, but Money which we now know was counterfeit.
Well, it's for a five, not a 20, Michael could have found out but at least it's there.
what Josh was doing People don't scrutinize twenties the same way and confronted him back at the apartment.
as they do hundreds, so it would be easy to pass off.
Things went from bad to worse.
This could explain why According to Miranda, all the twenties were left behind at the crime scene.
Josh was never at the apartment last night.
Whoever the killer is must have known the bills were fake.
What about his roommate Josh? Now we know the real reason for Michael's murder.
Where was he? Counterfeit cash.
He said he was gonna crash at a friend's place.
Yo, just spoke to Flack.
I-I don't have a name.
The apartment search turn up anything? And since we don't know who that friend is, Yep auto degreaser, ink jet printer, that story can't be verified until we find Josh.
scanner, glass cleaner, hair dryer Jpegs of the counterfeit cash we've recovered have been everything you need for printing counterfeit money.
sent to the Secret Service.
Well, the problem is, everything you just listed They're combing through data, compiling lists of New York City is also a regular household item, merchants where Josh may have spent some of the money.
easily explained away.
Wherever he passed the bills before, Everything but the scanned image of the $20 bill he might go back and try again.
that was found on the hard drive of Josh's computer.
Could Josh and Michael's argument I want everything brought back to the lab have been over the girl, Miranda? and processed for prints.
So who was the first punk band then? Michael's or anyone else's hands were on that equipment, Easy.
The Ramones.
I want to know about it.
First to incorporate the sound and the image.
At this point, She's right.
all the evidence suggests the counterfeit We're looking into that, as well.

That's him.
And even if Randy did kill Michael, That's the kid.
why is Josh the one who's still in the wind? Another question is, dumps two grand cash on a guitar, why would Michael knowingly spend some of his fake bills you don't find that strange? on a gift for his girlfriend at the same place where she works? No.
I mean, he's a nice kid.
Well, maybe he didn't realize He hangs out with one the girls I got working here for me.

No.
Killer went to the apartment looking for Josh.
Wait.
Wait-Wait a second.
Michael was there instead, got in the way.
What are you doing there? What are you writing down there? Collateral damage.
It's a pretty nice shop you got here.
With the killer still out there, Guessing the rent must be kind of steep.
this could mean that Josh isn't running from the police.
What's that supposed to mean? He's running for his life.
Listen, I feel bad Hey about what happened to that kid, all right? ran the snakeskin recovered from Michael's body I mean, nobody's supposed to die over, what, a couple hundred bucks? But I'm telling you, you're barking up the wrong tree.
I had nothing to do with it.
And to be honest with you, if I was to deposit some money that I had no idea was fake, that doesn't exactly say I'm guilty of anything.
So if you'll excuse me, I got rent to make.
(elevator bell chimes) He's right we've got motive, means, and opportunity, but we don't have proof.
And even if Randy did kill Michael, why is Josh the one who's still in the wind? Another question is, why would Michael knowingly spend some of his fake bills on a gift for his girlfriend at the same place where she works? Well, maybe he didn't realize it was fake in the first place.
I looked over all the Secret Service case reports that Lindsay put together.
The only time counterfeit bills were passed by someone fitting Michael's description was at Randy's Rock Shop.
All the other times the bills turned up, it was Josh, - working alone.

Killer went to the apartment looking for Josh.
Michael was there instead, got in the way.
Collateral damage.
With the killer still out there, this could mean that Josh isn't running from the police.
He's running for his life.
Hey ran the snakeskin recovered from Michael's body through every spectroscopic instrument we got.
And you found out what the unnatural pigmentation is from? Yeah, it's a complicated mixture of methylacylates and phenyl ketones.
Acrylic paint on snakeskin? Strange thing is, the mixture crystallizes with exposure to UV light.
Acrylic paint, when combined with UV hardening compounds, is sometimes used in gel fingernail polish.
Listen, I feel bad about what happened to that kid, all right? I mean, nobody's supposed to die over, what, a couple hundred bucks? DANVILLE: Randy Davis, music store guy-- his fingernails were painted black.
Okay, so maybe a piece of his fingernail polish chipped off during a struggle with Michael.
(phone ringing) Yeah.
Randy Davis' confidence was just a little too confident.
Okay, so what are you thinking? Randy lied.
He must have made a drop at the bank, not realizing some of the counterfeit bills were in his deposit.
That was Danny.
One of his patrol officers just collared a dealer who had some of our fake bills on him.
Said he got 'em from a guy matching Josh Herman's description.
Josh's best friend was murdered and he's out buying drugs? He wasn't buying drugs.
He was buying a gun.
Later, man.
Thank you.
Can never be too sure these days.
(Randy sighs, door bell jingles) (bell jingles) What, we got a problem? Yeah.
We got a problem.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, take it easy, man.
Put down the gun, man, let's talk about this.
I'm sure we can work something out.
Michael was my best friend.
Look, I didn't mean to hurt Michael.
- Stop moving.
- Put the gun down and let's talk about it, okay? I said stop moving.
Michael told me it was you on the phone before you shot him, before you killed him.
Okay, look, man, I'm telling you the truth, man, I didn't know the money was fake.
Someone gave it to me.
Who gave it to you? Just give me a couple days; I'll get you your money.
I need my money now.
You know what? Here, call him, - call him, right now.
- Okay.
Get him down here.
Okay, okay.
Call him.
Okay.
(phone keypad beeping) (line ringing) Just get him over here.
(panting) Hey, Josh, it's me.
Tell him.
Yeah, tell him to get down here.
Tell him.
Record store guy he knows.
Run, Josh, run! Don't come home, don't come back, don't come home! RANDY: Shut up.
MICHAEL: Don't, run! (gunshot over phone) (alarm tone sounding over phone) Michael had no idea the money was fake.
He was innocent in all of this, and you killed him.
It was an accident.
The gun just went off, all right? Do you realize what your money did, man? Look at this.
You see that? This is from Jimmy.
Works for the bookie that I owe six grand to.
He came down here and pimp-slapped me with his nine for trying to pass $1,200 in counterfeit your counterfeit.
I wasn't trying to kill nobody, man.
I was just trying to get my money back.
(door slams open) TAYLOR: NYPD! Drop it! I said drop it! Keep your hands in the air.
What? TAYLOR: Put the gun down, Josh.
I can't let him get away with this.
Killing this man isn't going to change anything.
Put the gun down! (gasping) (grunting) Oh, I didn't he pulled the gun on me, man.
Is this the gun you used for the murder? You know what I'd call this? Proof.
I didn't pull the trigger.
It was an accident.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
You know, you may want to invest in some nail polish remover before you get where you're going.
(horn honking) (indistinct conversation) TYLER: This is going to be interesting.
WOMAN: May I get a whiskey, soda, and water? Hey.
Mom, hi.
(chuckles) So I would like you to meet Alex.
Your new roommate nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you.
You didn't tell me she was a very attractive girl.
He didn't say you were unattractive he just didn't say you were a girl.
(chuckles) Woman very attractive woman.
- Thank you.
- Mm-hmm, I'm not buying it.
You found her picture on the Internet, didn't you? No.
Or one of your police databases.
It's not like I intentionally went and looked her up.
I just happened to stumble across some stuff your beautiful artwork, which I'd love to hear more about.
I'm starving-- why don't we get a table? Yeah.
After you.
Thank you.
Cute.
Mom, she's a roommate strictly a roommate.
(siren wailing) I knew if I told Michael the money was fake, he wouldn't take it.
He was always the good kid.
Made the right decisions, always on the straight and narrow so I made up a lie.
MICHAEL: There it is, there it is, there it is.
ANNOUNCER: Touchdown! (both yelling happily) (laughs) Nice catch.
Whoo! Three in a row.
Want to go again? (grunts) Oh, no, I can't.
I am meeting up with Miranda.
What, you think she's into you? You gonna give her the moves this time? Maybe.
God, I really like this girl.
I you know, I just don't want to rush it and blow it, you know? Hey, uh, you remember that guitar she said she wanted? Whoa, where'd you get all that? Moving mad rock, yo.
(laughs) Okay, come on, really.
Nah, I've been pulling extra shifts at the deli.
Look, it-it's no big deal, it's just a few hundred bucks.
Consider it a loan.
You pay me back whenever.
Okay, all right.
All right.
Thanks, buddy.
It was stupid.
Don't know what I was thinking.
If I could go back and change it all, I would.
Michael was my best friend.
I just wanted to help him out, get him the girl he wanted, that's all.
(sighs) I'm trying to sympathize with you here, Josh really, I am but what I can't get past is that you willingly dragged your best friend into this.
You want to act stupid, break the law? Fine, go ahead, do it.
Just do us all a favor leave the innocent people out of it.
It's time to make a start To get to know your heart Time to show your face Time to take your place In every speck of dust In every universe When you feel most alone You will not be alone Just shine a light on me Shine a light I'll shine a light on you Shine a light And you will see my shadow On every wall And you will see my footprint On every floor Just shine a light on me Shine a light I'll shine a light on you Shine a light 'Cause when your back's against the wall That's when you show no fear at all And when you're running out of time That's when you hitch your star to mine We won't be leaving On the same road That we came by We won't be leaving on the same road That we came by.
