Without A Trace s04e21 Episode Script


Hey, what's up, Mr.
Covington? Time to close up.
Can't you prop the back door again? I've gotta nail this jump.
Saturday's the Invitational.
Jeez, I don't know.
How about I wait five minutes? I'll walk you out.
The way I'm skating, it's gonna take a lot longer than that.
That's all right.
I don't mind.
No, I don't wanna keep you.
Really, I'll be okay.
Well, make sure it doesn't stick this time when you close it.
I will.
Good luck.
You kidding? I'd love to spend time with her.
No, drop her at the office.
That's great.
- Maria and the kids? - Yeah.
She's in town.
She got them tickets tonight to see Wicked.
Perfect choice.
Katie doesn't wanna go.
She wants to spend time with her daddy.
That's right.
- How much did you pay her? - Fifty bucks.
Okay, her name is Kelly McMurphy.
Fifteen years old.
She was supposed to call her mom to come here and pick her up.
The call never came.
That was two nights ago.
- Anybody see her leave this place? - I don't know yet.
Vivian's trying to locate the rink manager.
His name is Wade Covington.
- How far does she live from here? - Not far.
Three miles.
- She could have walked.
- Yeah, we set up a canvass.
Any luck on Mr.
Wade Covington? No, so I got Danny to run a background check on him.
He changed his name from Wade Covney.
Probably to hide the fact that he did time for raping a 14-year-old girl.
How's a guy like that get a job around kids? We're looking into that.
How long have you been your daughter's coach, Mr.
McMurphy? Ten years.
I understand that you lost your son recently.
Two months ago.
Would you mind telling me under what circumstances? Jason was driving home from the rink and he lost control.
His car went over the side of an embankment.
How did Kelly take it? She was devastated.
Jason taught Kelly how to skate.
He pulled her around a pond near our house in White Plains an entire winter.
Did your son compete as well? No.
Hockey rat, like me.
I played some in college.
What's your daughter's training schedule like? She practices from 5 to 8 a.
, and then after school from 4 to 9.
Sounds like a lot of pressure.
That's what it takes to get to the Olympics.
Kelly wouldn't disappear, not with a competition tonight.
I don't know about that.
She was very upset the other day.
- What happened? - I know.
I missed my triple toe.
It's okay.
You were wonderful for the rest of it.
She wasn't.
Your jumps were low, your position was sloppy.
I couldn't focus.
- God, what do you want from me? - I want your best, Kel.
Which is clear you weren't giving out there.
Why? I've had enough.
I don't wanna do this anymore.
You're throwing away 10 years because you had an off night? I've been thinking about it.
I'm not gonna let you stop because you're having a bad couple of days.
Look, I just - It just isn't fun anymore.
- Commitment isn't easy, Kel.
I promise when you're up there with silver on one side and bronze on the other, it will be worth it.
I was not gonna let her waste her gift.
We've put too much pressure on her since the accident.
What do you want? To let her think about what happened to her brother 24 hours a day? She's 15.
- Joanie.
- Mr.
McMurphy, we're not done.
Do you have any idea where your daughter might go? No.
We're gonna need a list of all her friends.
Yeah, sure.
I ran the rink's payphone records.
It turns out that a call was made before closing, to a hotel in Poughkeepsie.
The parents have any idea what she'd be doing there? No, they don't.
And I spoke to Kelly's friends.
She's been blowing off the sessions that she goes to without her father.
Any idea what she's been doing? Doesn't have a clue.
- Is now a bad time? - No, no, no.
Come in.
Special Agent Cassidy.
Special Agent Taylor.
I'm gonna call local P.
And make sure they start circulating Kelly's picture.
- Great.
- Okay.
How's the case? - You don't wanna know.
- Do you need to cancel tonight? - No.
- It's all right.
Actually, I wanted to ask you if we could make the reservation for three.
Who's the surprise guest? My daughter, Kate.
She's sweet.
She's lovely.
You'd enjoy it.
I don't know, Jack.
- What don't you know? - How to talk to kids, for starters.
Well, it's not that difficult.
I tried to make small talk once with my nephews about the trade deficit.
- What's wrong with that? - They're 8 and 5.
Why don't you just treat it like an anthropological experiment? See how that works.
- You sure? - Yeah.
No, you're not, but thank you for doing it.
I'll tell you where we're gonna be.
- Okay.
- All right.
You were convicted of aggravated sexual abuse of a minor.
Doesn't mean I did anything to Kelly.
Then why were you hiding out at your ex-wife's? I knew what you guys would think.
But I'm reformed.
It wasn't because you knew we'd search your office? This looks right into the girls' locker room.
Pretty nice view for a pervert.
- I've never seen that before.
- You were watching her.
- But that wasn't enough.
- I didn't touch her.
You expect us to believe you didn't take it beyond a peep show? I'm not the one you should be looking for.
- Some sicko's got it out for her.
- There's another sicko? I'm serious.
Someone was at the rink the other day.
Hey, Kel.
I've been meaning to give something to you.
Jason's jersey.
I found it when I was cleaning the equipment room.
Thought you might wanna have it.
He was a hell of a player.
Good kid too.
I should go get ready.
Kelly? What the hell? I was outside.
I didn't see anybody go in.
- So who did Kelly think it was? - Some other skater.
Some prank to psych her out.
- Why didn't you call the cops? - She begged not to.
Said it would make things worse.
So conveniently no one but you or Kelly can vouch that this happened.
Ask the rat.
Garbage pickup isn't till Tuesday.
It should still be in the Dumpster.
Are you kidding me? It was right where Wade said it would be.
They didn't find the head.
Okay, please, I just ate lunch, so goodbye.
You don't wanna pay respects before I take it to the lab? I'll pass.
Don't think about putting it there.
I have 20 discs to watch.
- Get out.
- Relax.
Who's the guy? Boyfriend? No, that's Kelly's brother.
He's always the first one to greet her off the ice.
- How we doing on our rat girl? - We have this girl named Maddie Porter.
She usually places first or second against Kelly.
I can never get past those outfits.
Really? Because I think you'd look cute in tights.
- I didn't do this.
- Of course you didn't.
Is there a reason Kelly would think you did? No.
We like each other.
At least I thought so.
This is probably some ploy on Kelly's part.
I doubt that.
Do you have any idea who might have done it? I don't think so.
Maddie? Maddie? Kelly could be in trouble.
Serious trouble.
Do you understand that? So if you know something, you need to tell us.
It was kind of weird.
I saw Kelly a couple weeks ago outside the rink.
Hey, Kelly.
- You okay? - I'm fine.
- Who was that? - No one.
Looked like someone to me.
Just please don't tell anybody about it, okay? Do you think you could help with a sketch of this man? Sure.
How old do you think this guy was? Like my dad's age, I think.
Hey, Jack? Sorry.
- You going up? - No, no, no.
I'll just Well, I'll just ride with you.
I changed my mind about tonight.
- Why? - She's only here for the weekend.
And I don't want her to think I'm taking your time away.
You're not, it's just dinner.
But we could be putting her in a very awkward situation, and I mean, what if she hates me? - She's not gonna hate you.
- But she might.
Hey, don't you think that you should let her decide? - Okay? - All right.
Just relax.
The parents didn't recognize the guy in the sketch.
Mac get anything off Kelly's computer? No, so he's checking the school.
She's constantly with adults.
Coaches, judges, parents of other kids.
This guy could be one of them.
We got the sexual predator part right, we just got the wrong one.
Well, don't count out Wade Covney yet.
I'm double-checking his alibi.
So I think I know who murdered Binky.
- Binky? Who's Binky? - The rat.
- You named the rat? - No, Kelly's biology class did.
Our lab determined it wasn't a street rat based on the food in its stomach.
So how did Binky end up in Kelly's locker? Somebody broke into the class.
- You have any suspects? - Yeah, a kid named Bobby Hillman.
He's a hockey player.
They caught him breaking in.
Got him on a security tape.
Nice work, Dan.
- Why were you trying to scare Kelly? - I wasn't.
Oh, so the rat cut off its own head and hung itself from Kelly's locker.
A suicidal rat, right? I wouldn't do anything to hurt Kelly.
She's my girlfriend.
Any reason why no one else knows about this? Jason and I were best friends.
After he died, Kelly and I became close.
We were worried what people would think.
If you're her boyfriend, who's that? I've never seen him before.
No, you know what I think? You found out that your girl was cheating on you.
- You wanted to scare her with the rat.
- No.
- No? - We have fingerprints from the locker.
If we compare them with yours what are we gonna find? - The rat wasn't even my idea.
- Then whose idea was it, Bobby? It all started because I went to see her at the rink a few days ago.
- Guess who.
- Don't.
It's just My dad's gonna be here any second and he could see.
What's that? Nothing.
Hey, can I ask you something? Before the accident, did Jason seem weird to you? No.
What do you mean? I guess it was just with me.
Every time I tried to make him laugh, he just got annoyed.
It wasn't because of you, Kel.
How do you know? He was juicing.
No, my brother wouldn't use steroids.
He did.
For over a year.
I don't know, it must have been too long.
He started acting strange.
Like, really aggressive.
It explains why he was driving the way he did that night.
The Jason I knew would never have gotten in that accident.
Kelly! She demanded to know where Jason got his steroids.
Who was the dealer? He's the school trainer.
So he got you to put the rat up there.
He wanted to freak Kelly out so she wouldn't say anything about him.
He threatened to cut me off unless I did it.
What's his name? His name's Ray Mullins.
I don't know what you're talking about.
Bobby told us the rat was your idea.
- Well, he's lying.
- Is he lying about the steroids too? Yeah.
So that's why half the hockey team told us you sell steroids.
You got any real proof? Here's what I got.
A 15-year-old girl found out what you were doing.
Now she's missing.
So that's motive.
I'm sure I can find someone who saw you together.
That gives you opportunity.
So why don't you start talking? All right, look, it's simple.
I admit to the rat.
It was stupid.
- It didn't work.
- What do you mean, "didn't work"? Kelly came by my office the other night all bent out of shape.
- Hey, Ray.
- Hey.
What's up, Kelly? I just got my new order of one-and-a-half-inch tape in.
Help yourself.
How's the steroid business working out for you? You know, roid rage and bacne and all that stuff.
What do you want? Two thousand dollars.
What, you got a prom dress to pay for or something? That's none of your business.
You're not gonna get a dime out of me.
Then I'll go to the police.
Then I'll take you down with me.
What did Jason tell you? Nothing.
He doubled his order before he died and I know it's not for anyone else on the team.
Why don't you go get your money someplace else? Are you absolutely sure that Kelly was using steroids? She pulled her groin the same time Jason was asking for drugs.
You do the math.
You have any idea what she needed the money for? I could care less.
- Have an alibi for Thursday night? - Yeah.
I was at the Firefly with some guys, having drinks.
They'll vouch for me.
Where are you going? Sit down, man, we're not done with you.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Kelly's login generated a number of web searches from last month.
Planned Parenthood, Council on Teen Pregnancy, the list goes on.
Well, if she's pregnant, could be that she needed the money for an abortion.
- I don't think Bobby's keeping secrets.
- There's the middle-aged boyfriend.
Maybe he didn't want it to get out that he got a 15-year-old pregnant.
Kelly's period didn't stop because she was pregnant.
They stopped because Pete upped her training.
What you found was probably from before we went to the doctor and figured it out.
Where is your husband now? He had a work emergency.
- How long has he been gone? - I don't know.
He left a note.
Could you write your husband's work number down? Thank you.
McMurphy, we have information that both your son and daughter may have been using steroids.
Is that something that you and your husband might've encouraged? I know that it's out there.
But I would never do anything to put my child's health at risk.
What about your husband? No.
Your daughter was looking for a substantial amount of money.
Any idea why? I think Kelly may have been trying to help me out.
- Hey, you're home.
- What are you doing in my drawer? I was looking for a sock.
I thought maybe it got mixed up in your laundry.
Probably just fell behind the dryer.
You're stealing from me? No, I'm just gonna borrow it because I have to pick up the dry cleaning.
Four hundred dollars? - Just forget it.
It doesn't matter.
- No, Mom.
What is going on? I think I think I think things just got a little screwed up after your brother died.
What do you mean? I've I've been It's okay, you can tell me.
I've been taking things.
From Mrs.
Kaplan's boutique.
They said they won't press charges if I pay them back.
It's gonna be okay.
I just really miss him.
I know.
I know.
So do I.
How much money do you owe? A thousand.
I spoke with your husband's workplace.
He's not there, and apparently there is no work emergency.
- Dad.
- Hey, sweetie.
- How are you? - Good.
Where's your mother and your sister? They had to get to the theater.
How is Hanna? She scored two goals last week.
She wanted me to tell you even though she's gonna see you tomorrow.
And how's your mother? Good.
She works too much.
Listen, I wanted to ask you if it would be okay if I brought a friend to dinner.
Can it be Danny? Danny isn't exactly who I had in mind.
- Anne? - Yeah.
I'd like you to get to know her better.
Dad? You like Anne, right? Yes, I do.
Mom took hers off a long time ago.
Yeah, I noticed.
So why don't you take yours off too? I don't know, I I think I just left it on for you and your sister.
Thank you.
Try to get that high score.
You know where to find me if you need me.
- Any word on Kelly's dad? - No.
I checked with some of the parents.
McMurphy was banned from Jason's games for fighting.
One guy ended up with stitches.
- The guy press charges? - No.
But one witness saw McMurphy getting really rough with Jason after he played badly in a big game.
Maybe he was doing the same to Kelly, then she took off.
Maybe he's trying to find her first so that she doesn't talk.
Oh, excuse me.
I got it.
Newell? Right.
Okay, thanks.
Someone in Poughkeepsie saw Kelly yesterday morning with one of the guests, a Linus Newell.
Check it out.
- Looks like our guy in the sketch.
- Sure does.
- This is it.
- Okay.
Can you give me the key, please? - Step back.
- Mr.
Newell, this is the FBI.
Open up.
Come on.
It's clear.
- Are you sure he didn't check out? - He was here five minutes ago.
He's right there.
Come on, let's go.
Are you Linus Newell? Get out of the car.
Elena, check the trunk.
Get out.
Come here.
I said, get out.
- All right, where's Kelly? - I don't know.
- What'd you do to her? - Nothing, I swear.
- Look, this is a misunderstanding.
- Sex with a minor, a misunderstanding? - No, this isn't about sex.
- No? What's it about? I was trying to convince her to take me on as a coach.
A witness saw you consoling her outside the rink two weeks ago.
Was that part of the sales pitch? She was a mess about her brother.
She needed someone to talk to.
I'm starting my own camp in Lake Placid.
That's why she came here to see me.
- Are you okay, Kelly? - Yeah, I'm great.
I'm just really anxious about this decision, I guess.
All right, let's talk about it.
So if you coach me, I can stay at your camp in Lake Placid like, full-time, like, live there, right? - That's how we'd arrange it.
Provided your parents are onboard.
You did talk to your dad, right? Yeah, he's okay with it.
So when could we go? Where are your parents, Kelly? They couldn't come.
But they did sign the consent forms that you sent.
I still have to speak to them.
Is this about the deposit? Because I thought maybe we could work out some kind of payment plan, or I don't know.
I could pay you in some other way.
What the hell's going on here? I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to - I just really need you to coach me.
- That's not what this is about.
I'm saying yes.
That's what you wanted, right? Yeah, but not under these circumstances.
So, what? Are you're saying that I can't go with you? There's something going on you're not telling me.
I can't coach you if you're not honest with me.
I'm sorry.
I called her dad.
He accused me of trying to steal his daughter.
He threatened to kill me.
- When? - Couple hours ago.
Why'd you wait a day to call him? I wanted her to work it out with him.
But when he didn't call, I figured I should.
Two hours ago would make it 4:00.
Before McMurphy went to go look for his daughter.
Come on, let's go.
All right, so I confirmed Newell's story.
He called McMurphy's cell phone at 4 p.
He has a three-hour head start on us, if he has any idea where she's going.
The canvass around Newell's hotel turned up a witness who saw Kelly trying to hitch a ride.
Hey, that was the state police.
They just pulled over Pete McMurphy on a driving violation.
- Any sign of Kelly? - No.
But there was blood in the car and his hand was busted up.
What happened to your hand? I cut it.
How? On a glass.
- You drinking? - No.
It was water.
I got pissed off when that jackass Newell called.
Yes, I heard that you threatened Newell.
You must have been equally furious with your daughter.
I would never hurt Kelly.
Then why'd she run away? Mr.
Your daughter blackmailed a steroid dealer then she tried to prostitute herself to get away from you.
Why is that? - You molesting her? - No.
Then why did she go? - It's a family matter.
- Not anymore, it's not.
Look, Mr.
McMurphy, if you've seen anything if you've done anything and you're not telling me, it's obstruction.
Do you wanna find your daughter or not? Something happened this afternoon.
I thought you wanted to quit.
I guess you just wanted to kick me in the head.
Dad, I should've told you.
Yeah, but instead you ran away.
Your mom and I have been worried.
Half the FBI is looking for you.
I'm sorry.
Sorry? Do you believe someone can coach you better than your own father? - No.
- Then what the hell is this all about? If I had one-tenth the talent you had, I wouldn't piss it away.
I couldn't stand being around here anymore.
Why? Because of what happened to Jason.
What does Jason's accident have to do with any of this? Did you know that he was using steroids? That's ridiculous.
No, it's not.
He gave them to me when I got injured.
He told me that he wasn't taking them himself, but he lied.
He had been using them for over a year.
- Jason would never take steroids.
- It's because of you.
Because of the way that you pushed him.
They screwed him up.
He killed himself, Dad.
Where the hell do you get off saying that? I found this in his room.
I was looking for music for my competition.
This doesn't prove anything.
It's just words on paper.
Think about how he was before he died.
He didn't leave it where we could find it.
He didn't want us to blame ourselves even though it was all our fault.
Our fault? How? Making him die in a car accident? The car didn't just drive off the road by itself.
You know, I'm not talking to you about this.
Get out.
Do you hear me? Get out! I know I shouldn't have let her go.
Probably not.
You gotta find her.
You could've helped me if you'd called as soon as you'd seen her.
I didn't know how to explain without Joanie knowing the truth.
She'll never forgive herself.
She'll never forgive me.
You'll have to stay here until I can corroborate the story.
All right.
She gets rejected by Newell.
Her father kicks her out.
Where would she go? Where she's supposed to be? The New York Invitational? No, I don't think she's in the mood for skating.
Wait a second.
- What? - Her parents talked about this pond.
Some pond where her brother first taught her to skate.
Somewhere out in White Plains.
All right, why don't you come with me? You, let's go this way.
Kelly? Kelly, my name is Samantha Spade, with the FBI.
We've been looking for you.
Do I have to go home now? It's late and your parents are worried about you.
You really don't wanna go home, do you? I just never wanna skate again.
I threw my skates in there.
I don't know.
Maybe it was stupid but I think Jason would've liked that.
You know something? I don't think it's stupid at all.
The night he died, he tried to talk to me.
And I wouldn't listen.
I think we need to work on the spiral.
My legs are killing me from the lunges.
I can't get my leg around.
We'll get the heating pads out tonight, you'll be good as new.
- Hey, Jase.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- What's up? Just figured I'd stop by on my way home.
Is everything okay? Yeah.
Come on, Jay.
I don't know.
I've just been feeling down.
Well, you wanna talk about it? Kelly.
Gotta go.
I guess now's not a good time.
Look, it's nothing.
Really, I There's just a lot of stuff going on.
Well, we can talk after dinner.
That sounds good.
Come on.
Gotta go.
You're doing great.
Doing great, keep it up.
What happened to your brother is not your fault.
Can we just stay a minute? Sure.
Hey, sorry we're late.
Hey, no problem.
- Everything all right? - Yeah.
She's fine.
Kate, this is Anne.
Anne, Kate.
- Hi.
- How do you do? We met a long time ago, actually.
It was at a party your parents had once.
But you were much smaller then.
I'm sorry that your husband got shot.
No, no, no.
Thank you very much, Kate.
Thank you.
Shall we sit? Yeah.
Put your butt down.
And you thought dinner was gonna be awkward for her.
- Are you drinking tonight? - Oh, yeah.
To the brim.
