Taxi driver Rajeeb Khandewahl accidentally runs over a teenage pedestrian boy and is brutally battered in hospital, where he later dies, by a gang of white trash who think the 'foreign scum' runs away. Grissom remarked his intestines are at the outside, which is very rare, and Dr. Albert Robbins' autopsy shows that the boy was run over after being killed by a stab wound; his blood traces to the park, where a hidden handgun is found, not a knife, and another dead man. His mother identifies the stabbed kid as Todd Branson; she says she was on the run with Todd and his kid brother Eric for her violent ex, which she told them to be dead. The corps in the park has a typical knife-wielder's hand-wound and a fatal bullet-wound in the heart. The gun was John Ruark's, the corps is Mrs. Branson's boyfriend Stewart Bradley and has a posthumously dislocated shoulder, as if dragged by a woman or a kid... Written by KGF Vissers

In the next scene they have arrived to the park, and it's more or less in the middle of the day, and the sun is shining from a cloudless sky. See more »
