Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Cause of death, acute pulmonary edema. A direct result of the flu.
Detective Ed Green: So why'd you call us here?
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: His parents said he got a flu shot about a month ago, so I pulled his pediatrician's chart. According to the records, he was vaccinated, but when I ran blood titers, he had no antibodies.
Detective Joe Fontana: And he should have had?
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: If he'd been immunized, absolutely.
Detective Ed Green: I still don't get why we're here.
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Well, there have been a lot of flu-related deaths in the past few weeks. I went through the autopsy records and found half a dozen other victims who had also supposedly been vaccinated but had no antibodies.
Detective Joe Fontana: Supposedly?
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: These people were not injected with the flu vaccine. They couldn't have been.
Detective Ed Green: It wasn't just a bad batch of the vaccine?
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Even with an expired or a contaminated vaccine, there'd still be antibodies.
Detective Ed Green: So if it wasn't the vaccine, what were they injected with?
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Good question. Now, there's no sign of anything toxic, so it has to be something neutral. Sterile saline solution, maybe.
Detective Joe Fontana: So these people all thought they were getting vaccinated. They weren't, and get the flu anyway and it killed 'em?
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Exactly.
Detective Joe Fontana: [to Green] We could be looking at a whole bunch of homicides here.
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: That's why I called you.

Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Oh, it wasn't a knife. It's as sharp as a knife blade, but massier.
Kevin Bernard: Massier? What kind of word is that?
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: It's a term of art. The blade was wider and thicker than a knife blade.
Cyrus Lupo: Those his clothes?
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Mm-hmm.
Cyrus Lupo: And what else can you tell us about our John Doe, in plain English, please?
Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers: Well, he was well muscled, his hands are calloused. Probably saw his fair share of manual labor. And he had lentil stew and milk shortly before he died.
Cyrus Lupo: Yummy.


"Law & Order: Criminal Intent: Sound Bodies (#3.8)" (2003)
