Hawaii Five-0 s03e22 Episode Script

Ho'opio (To Take Captive)

I know you're scared.
But it's gonna be okay.
I want my mommy.
I know exactly how you feel.
(Hawaii Five-O theme song plays) Yeah! Yeah! Gotta hand it to you, buddy.
You got a lot of heart, showing up with that haircut.
You know, I find it difficult to be insulted by a man who uses more product in his hair than most women do.
Sinéad O'Connor called, she wants her hairstyle back.
Very good.
Well, hairstyle would imply that this was intentional, and I think Steve just got a little carried away trimming his sideburns.
You, too, huh? What? It's what happened.
It's okay.
Hakkeyoi nokotta, nokotta, nokotta! There you go, people.
The winner once again, my little cousin, the Samoan Scrapper, Flippa! Winner! Now who wants to take on the champ for a chance at free grindz? Dude, pick me, pick me! Over here, man.
Me! Come on, man! Get in the ring, little sistah.
You've got to be kidding.
He's not even trying to make it look like a fair fight anymore.
- Come on.
- No, no, no.
I like her.
I like homegirl's chances.
She's, uh she's very scrappy-looking.
All right, I like her a lot.
Thanks, Zac.
Sorry I'm late.
No worries.
I just ordered.
Everything okay? Yeah.
You sure? It's Adam.
I just haven't heard from him in days.
Left him messages, sent him texts.
Well, maybe he's tied up at work.
Maybe he's just avoiding me.
Kono, what's going on? I can't really put my finger on it.
It's just Adam's definitely different.
It's like he's more secretive, you know? It's like he's hiding something.
Hiding what? I'm not sure.
It seemed to start when his when his brother Michael came out of prison.
Kono, that was months ago.
Why didn't you say something sooner? If you can't trust Adam, then you can't be with him.
Do you trust him? I don't know.
Look, you know that I had my doubts about him, right? Yeah.
But he was there for you when you needed him most.
So, before you assume the worst, why don't you at least give him a chance to explain? Hakkeyoi nokotta, nokotta, nokotta! Ooh, bold new look there, boss.
Come on! Everybody? Really? Okay, it's hair.
You know the good thing about hair? It grows back.
Well, if you're lucky.
Hakkeyoi nokotta, nokotta, nokotta! Winner! Winner! Shrimp dinner! Sorry, cuz.
Don't sweat it.
That shrimp plate? It's coming out of your paycheck.
Yeah, we're on the way.
We got to go.
A couple hikers discovered her this morning.
Jane Doe, no I.
She can't be older than 17.
Shot in the back and dumped in a shallow grave.
My guys found some fresh tire tracks nearby.
CSU's making casts.
No shoes, feet are torn up pretty good.
Scratches and splinters on her arms.
Probably from the branches.
I'm thinking the shooter drove out here to execute her, she made a run for it, he shot her in the back.
You all right? We got to go find her parents.
Okay, thank you.
Lab just confirmed that the tire tracks found at the scene are consistent with late-model Ford vans and trucks-- that's anything manufactured after 2008.
Plus, the tires were sold commercially.
That's fantastic.
So that narrows it down to about 2,000 vehicles on this island.
Hey, so the autopsy report came back.
Max put T.
around 1:00 a.
this morning.
But this is what you really need to see.
What is that, ankle bruising? It's not just bruising.
It's scar tissue.
Max also found calcification around the ankle bone.
For that to develop, the victim would have had to have been restrained a long time.
How long? Years.
They were keeping this girl prisoner.
All right, Max say there were any signs of sexual abuse? No.
But he did find a foreign hair on the body.
If the hair doesn't belong to the victim, maybe her killer left it behind.
Yeah, Fong's running it for DNA.
Got an I.
on our Jane Doe.
Prints turned up in the missing persons database.
Her name's Amanda Morris.
My God.
When did she go missing? She was seven years old when she was kidnapped, which would make her 17 today.
Chin, run age progression software on that photograph, please.
It's obviously her.
Amanda Morris was kidnapped ten years ago.
Where's she been this whole time? The only thing worse than losing your daughter is losing her twice.
All those years spent waiting, holding out hope that the police would find Amanda.
And that whole time, she was right here on the Island? I don't understand.
- How could this happen? - Well, there's still a lot that we don't know about this case.
But, uh, please believe me when I say we are doing everything we can to find the person who did this.
We know it was a long time ago, but anything you can tell us about Amanda's abduction could maybe help with our case.
It was her summer break, and we were at the water park.
Amanda had worked up enough courage to go down the high slide, so I-I walked her over to the line and and I waited at the bottom.
I had my camera out to take that picture of her coming down.
She never did.
It's likely whoever took your daughter was using the water park as his hunting ground.
This could have happened to anybody.
But it happened to us.
Chin, I stopped by HPD, and I picked up the case file on Amanda's abduction.
It's pretty thin.
Did their investigation turn up any leads or suspects? No.
At the time, HPD followed protocol and they ran background on Amanda's family and neighbors, all of them who checked out.
Investigators always suspected it was a professional job.
Possibly part of a child trafficking ring.
Well, except by all appearances, Amanda was never taken off the Island.
So why was she abducted? I'm heading back now.
I just need to make a quick stop first.
All right.
Adam? Drop your weapons! Drop them, both of you! Do the math.
You don't have enough time to get off two shots.
I wouldn't be so sure.
Admire the confidence.
Comes with the badge.
Is that right? Five-O.
You must be Adam's cop girlfriend.
We got concealed carry permits if you care to see 'em.
Those things permit you to break into people's homes, too? Door was open.
We just came to see if Adam was around.
You know where we might find him? He went to see Sato, didn't he? Who the hell is Sato? Never mind, then.
If you see your boyfriend, tell him his brother Michael's looking for him.
So, Amanda Morris is kidnapped ten years ago.
There's no ransom demands, there's no signs of abuse, and we know she wasn't trafficked because she never left the Island.
Okay, so what was the kidnapper doing with her all these years? I don't know, but there's another question that we're not asking, and that is, why kill her now? All right, what changed that led Amanda's abductor to suddenly want to get rid of her - after ten years? - Hey.
Just heard from Fong.
Lab got a hit on that foreign hair found on Amanda's body.
Only it didn't come from our killer.
How do we know that? Because it came back to a six-year-old girl named Ella Bishop who was kidnapped from her home in Waipio yesterday afternoon.
There's only one way that her hair ended up on Amanda's body.
Both girls were kidnapped by the same person.
Whenever you're ready.
Ella was wearing a blue jumper with a white shirt.
She also had a heart bracelet with her name on it.
If anyone has seen her, please call the police right away.
We just want our daughter back.
Thank you.
We'll get this out right away.
Let's go.
Can I help you? Yeah, I'm Tip Gilbert.
And my crew and I are here to see if the family needs any help.
Your daughter was Maile? Yes, she was.
Hey, uh, I heard about you guys.
Uh, like what you do, you help HPD.
Missing persons cases, you set up search parties-- it's good.
Never hurts to have too many eyes and ears out there.
Look, I know you guys are doing everything you can to find Ella, but if you get a lead and need us to hit the streets, give me a call.
All right.
Thank you very much.
My pleasure.
Nice work.
Thanks, guys.
I mean, ten years is a long time, but I don't think I've ever seen her.
I got to ask you, though, if it's been so long, why do you think these two cases are related? Mr.
Bishop, Amanda Morris' body was discovered this morning, and evidence on it indicates that she was in contact with your daughter.
Oh, no Listen, we have every reason to believe right now that your daughter is okay.
Hear me? We think that she's okay.
So, I need you both to stay optimistic, 'cause we are gonna find her and we're gonna bring her back to you.
Okay? Thank you.
Thank you.
I know what you're gonna say, okay? Cop 101: do not make promises that you cannot keep.
Okay, I get it.
You all but guaranteed those people we'd find their daughter.
What what happens when we can't deliver on that promise, Danny? What do we do then? Listen to me.
When Grace was taken by Rick Peterson last year, I know it was only for a couple of hours, but it felt like a month.
It was the worst day of my life, and every second, you cannot stop thinking about worst-case scenario.
So I-I know what Ella's parents are going through right now, and hope, even if it is false hope, is the only thing that's keeping them going.
Yeah, Chin? HPD canvass got a lead.
One of Ella's neighbors noticed a suspicious vehicle parked on her street roughly an hour before the kidnapping.
I ran the plate, and it came back to a 2009 Ford Econoline van.
Oh, that's consistent with the tire tracks that were found at the scene where Amanda Morris' body was dumped.
All right, so our killer uses the same van to abduct Ella.
Uh, who's it registered to? Well, that's the thing.
The van was reported stolen I've already put out an APB and a MAILE AMBER Alert.
HPD has got all available units searching the Island for it.
I'll update you as soon as we have some more information.
All right, copy that.
Thank you, Chin.
What are you doing? Getting some extra eyes out there.
(motorcycle engines rumbling Detective Williams.
Danny, it's Tip.
We got a lock on the van.
He's northbound on Kalanianaole Highway.
Coming out of Waimanalo.
Okay, please stay right on him.
We're on our way.
All right? Roger that.
Hey, hey! Show me your hands right now! On the ground.
On the ground.
Get on the ground.
Face down.
Face down! Face down now lock your fingers behind your head.
Danny? She in there? No.
Lloyd Grimes.
You got an impressive body of work here.
Corruption of a minor, aggravated assault, assault with a deadly weapon.
Now you can add kidnapping and murder to that résumé.
I have no idea what you're talking about.
Ella Bishop.
Where is she? What, you mean that girl who went missing? Who's all in the news? Why would you think I had something to do with that? Because the day she went missing, you were spotted in a stolen van parked two blocks from her house.
I have nothing more to say to you guys.
Listen to me, okay? The only reason I don't choke the life out of you right now is because I think you know where that little girl is.
So do yourself a favor - and speak up.
- Danny.
Tell me where she is right now.
Danny! Step away.
Oh, you guys are insane! I didn't kidnap any girl, I swear.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight.
Defense becomes the offense.
What? Get.
Good! Danno, what are you doing here? Come here, babe.
Is everything okay? Yeah.
Everything's good, monkey, I just wanted a hug.
All right? All right, go ahead.
Ready! Defense becomes the offense So, HPD searched our suspect's house.
No sign of Ella, but they did find upwards of 30 grand worth of stolen property stashed in the guy's garage.
Okay, so he's a kidnapper and a thief.
Well, actually, here's the thing.
A bunch of the items traced back to recent burglaries in Ella's neighborhood.
This guy hit over a dozen houses over the past month.
That's why his van was spotted there yesterday.
He wasn't there to grab Ella.
He was casing the neighborhood.
Makes sense, given there was another house robbed there last night.
Either this guy's quite the multitasker, or he's not our kidnapper.
Saw you on that left.
Late drop.
I thought you weren't gonna make it.
Yeah, you and me both.
So, what'd you want to talk to me about? I need a favor.
All right, Steve's usually the one asking for those.
He sending you to do his dirty work? No.
This one's for me.
I need to run intel on someone, but I need it done off the books.
This isn't about a case, is it? What's the name? Sato.
It's a common Japanese surname.
But the guy I'm looking for is connected to the Yakuza in some way.
Is Adam in some kind of trouble? That's what I need to find out.
But, Catherine, I'd really appreciate it if you just kept this between us.
Kono, if Steve asks me, I'm not going to lie to him.
He's not going to ask 'cause he doesn't know anything.
Security cam footage from the Bank of O'ahu on Waipio.
That's just a few blocks from Ella Bishop's house.
One of their ATMs faces right out onto the street.
I was hoping it may have caught our kidnapper on video.
Any luck? No.
So far, none of the vehicles matches the tire tracks found at the murder scene.
You ever hear from Adam? Uh, yeah actually.
He finally called back, and you were right.
He was just wrapped up with work.
Glad to hear it.
That's odd.
What is? That blue sedan-- it passes through the intersection six times in the 20 minutes before Ella was abducted.
Okay, but the tire tracks at the murder scene were left by a van or a truck.
Oh, our guy could have used a different vehicle for the kidnapping.
Six times in 20 minutes.
Either he's lost or he's waiting for an opportunity.
I'll run the plate.
Vehicle's registered to a Helen Cantera.
That's Cantera.
Check out what she's wearing.
An HPD uniform.
Chin, she's not a cop.
That's how she got Ella into the car with her.
No plates.
And the car in the video was blue.
Paint's fresh.
Cantera's trying to cover her tracks.
Steve! Helen Cantera, Five-O! If Ella's in there with you, you need to let her go right Gun! Any sign of Ella? She's not here.
She knew, Danny.
She knew, and she chose to take her own life rather than tell us where Ella is.
Must have come off Ella's wrist when she was in the trunk.
As far as the property is concerned, HPD has searched this place top to bottom, and so far there's no sign that Ella was ever here.
Maybe Cantera has her stashed someplace else until the heat dies down.
It's possible, but Amanda Morris was held prisoner for ten years.
Assuming Cantera kept her here, - why is there no signs of that either? - Guys? There's something inside you need to see.
All right, so "cop" was definitely not the only role in Cantera's repertoire.
Look at this-- nurse, paramedic, nun.
Those are all people a child would trust.
All right, if Cantera's got this many disguises, that means she's done this more than twice.
So, we're dealing with what, a serial abductor? A serial abductor who traffics children for profit.
There's 40 grand in there easy.
Well, that explains why, after ten years, there's no evidence of Amanda ever having been here.
Cantera kidnapped her for somebody else.
And now that same person has Ella.
You must be hungry.
I made you a sandwich.
I'm not hungry.
I want to go home.
You are home, sweetie.
May I join you? I'm sorry he had to do that to you.
I'm sure you're scared, and you probably miss your parents a lot.
But there's something I need you to know.
Your mommy and daddy were in a very bad accident.
I want to see them.
I'm sorry, honey.
You can't.
Ever again.
They're in Heaven.
And we're your family now.
This just in.
Big development in the Ella Bishop case.
Investigators have identified a local woman who they believe to be the suspected kidnapper.
We're being told her name is Helen Cantera, and that HPD raided her residence just hours ago.
Authorities are still at the scene combing through evidence in order to locate the missing girl.
In other news, the transit authority says the H-1 will reopen tomorrow morning.
Proposed roadwork will proceed.
I ran background on Helen Cantera.
She's originally from Arizona.
She moved to the Island back in October of 2002.
Less than a year later, Amanda Morris goes missing.
So, more than likely, Cantera kidnapped both our victims.
Yeah, and who knows how many other kids during that time.
All right, get HPD everything that you have on Cantera.
And see if they can link her to any open kidnapping cases.
I got to take this.
Are you alone? Yeah.
Listen, I'm e-mailing you a full intel package on Riku Sato.
You were right about him being connected to the Yakuza.
Guy's what they call an oyabun.
That means he's a boss of one of the families.
Sato's been linked to over a dozen murders.
Politicians, heads of rival criminal syndicates.
He also used to be in business with Adam's father, Hiro Noshimuri, back when Hiro was a power player in the Yakuza.
And, Kono, there's more.
Japanese police have been monitoring Sato's compound in Osaka for months.
Check the last entry in their surveillance logs.
Adam's there.
He arrived two days ago.
Kono, this may be none of my business, but if your boyfriend is getting into business with the head of the Yakuza, I really think you need to tell Steve.
Hey, Cath? Uh, sorry.
I have to go.
I just dumped Cantera's cell phone.
Listen to the voice mail she received this morning.
It's done.
Meet me at 9:00 tonight.
And bring the cash.
Cash? Cash for what? Number traces back to a David Parsons.
He works in the Vital Records Division of the Hawaii Department of Health.
Over the years he created a total of 21 false identities for Cantera's victims.
I forwarded everything to the FBI's Human Trafficking Division.
They're gonna start tracking those kids down now.
Check this out.
The last false identity he created was for Ella.
She was put into the system under the name Lisa Beckett.
Here's the thing, though-- the parents listed on the birth certificate are Ray and Terry Beckett.
And we verified they're an actual married couple living - in Makaha.
- And that's not all.
Records show that they've also been collecting welfare benefits on an older daughter named Jessica Beckett for the past ten years.
And the benefits run out in November when she turns 18.
That's why they got rid of Amanda and brought in Ella.
They need a minor in there to keep the money flowing.
Hey! Five-O.
Where's the girl? You're interrupting my lunch.
Hang on.
I got this.
Ma'am, stay where you are.
Put your hands up.
Ma'am, put your hands up and don't move.
Okay, you, get up.
Up, up, up.
Hands behind your back.
Get up, stand up.
Hands behind your back, hands behind your back.
I guess whatever you're looking for is not here.
Shut up.
I want to see a warrant.
Shut up.
Where is she? Huh? Where is she? Okay.
All right.
You don't want to talk about Ella.
Let's talk about Amanda, then, okay? Who's Amanda? Who's Amanda? Amanda is a little innocent girl that you kept prisoner here in your house for ten years.
All so you could collect $500 in welfare benefits.
I mean, I don't understand.
Doesn't make any sense to me.
Y-You could've you could've made that same amount, uh, recycling tin cans.
Huh? I can't work.
I'm on disability.
Oh, you're on disability.
That's good.
Explain to me 'cause I don't understand.
How would it how would it go? Child Services, they come by, uh, you let that little girl out of her cage, put on a little act? A little show? Huh? Is that how it went? I mean, how much fear did you have to instill in that little kid to keep her mouth shut, huh? Huh? I don't think you're anything like your husband.
To him, these girls were just a payday, but I think you cared about them.
The way this place is decorated, all the gifts, the books.
He didn't do this.
You did all this, right? But if you really care about Ella, you need to tell me where she is right now or she's gonna end up like Amanda.
You understand? Wait a minute.
Wait, wait, wait.
Ray didn't tell you what he did to Amanda, did he? You're trying to trick me.
Oh, my God.
Look at the photograph.
Look at it.
She was about to turn 18.
He had no use for her anymore.
What'd you think he was gonna do, let her go? If I'd have known If you'd have known what? You wouldn't have done anything.
That's not true.
Prove it.
Where's Ella? You took Ella away in your truck this afternoon.
You told your wife that you needed to hide her until things cooled down.
So why don't you just tell us right now where Ella is, all right? Last chance.
Where is she? Why would I give up the only leverage I've got right now? Leverage? Danny! You can't do that to me.
You're cops! Give me your badge.
Give me the badge.
That's 400 yards out from the road.
This is where Ray said it would be.
Oh, oh, oh.
Marker right here.
Here's his marker.
Hey, everybody! Right over here! Look around.
Everybody, right around here.
Hey, guys, over here! Ella! Ella! Hey, get a shovel here! Come on.
Bring some shovels.
Ella, can you hear us? Ella? Ella? Ella? Oh.
Oh, oh.
All right.
Come here, sweetie.
Come here.
You're okay.
I got you.
We got you.
You okay? You all right? Huh? Anything hurt? You okay, babe? You all right? Let's get you out of here.
Come on.
Let's go home.
Ella! Ella! Ella.
Some things I can remember more than others.
Like my house on Kilihau St.
My bike in the driveway with the pink tassels on the handlebars.
Mom's face I'll never forget.
It's there when I look in the mirror.
When I was little, people would say how much I looked like her.
Dad only comes in glimpses.
Sitting on his lap while he read books to me.
How big his hands were next to mine.
The way his cologne smelled.
Those memories are all I have left.
They tell me my parents are dead, but I don't believe it.
I know they're still alive and they still love me.
I just hope they know that I love them, too.
