Dr. Laura Hobson: From the hypostasis I'd say he's not been dead much more than two hours. The bullet's entered the side of the skull here but it's not exited. So it was travelling at a low velocity by the time it hit. Sniper at... long range possibly?

Dr. Laura Hobson, pathologist: Yes, Sergeant, it would have been instant.

DI Peterson: [after he has walked past her, he turns toward her] Oh, um. oh, I'm sorry. We haven't met. I'm kind of the new boy around here... Alan Peterson.
