Manuscript restorer Veronica Bradley died, poisoned, in the Western States Historical Society's precise book premises. Key witness and prime suspect is autistic colleague Aaron Pratt, while their boss, the curator, protests at conservation risks for rare books. Megan Treadwell was killed, unlike her dog, when a train crushed her car on a crossroads. But the car was first hit by another, as turns out during a crazy escalation of meanness.

CSI:Crime Scene Investigation-Caged
7 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A woman is found dead in a cage which houses precious books in a historical library, the key to her demise could very well lie in the mind of a highly intelligent, incredibly ordered autistic young man named Aaron. A ballpoint pen and a poison derived from ricin could be the answer, but who is the one responsible? Grissom really attaches to Aaron as he tries to get as much exact, elaborate detail from him as humanly possible(Aaron may be autistic, but details are his specialty and his memory of faces, conversations, and words from books is extraordinary). Meanwhile Catherine and Sara work on the case of a woman whose SUV was crushed head on by an oncoming train..the reason may not be suicide as first impressions would surmise. Tire tracks, a 911 call for help, and the emergency break, along with eye witness testimony of an Accountant's tirade with the victim, could lead Catherine and Sara to an actual murder. Sadly tragic is this case as one woman's love for her dog could've been the reason she didn't exit her SUV as the train was about to destroy her. Aaron's love for the victim and his quote from Othello(his favorite Shakespeare)are especially endearing, although she planned to implicate him for a forgery operation orchestrated by their boss, Mr. Hunter(Currie Graham). Amazing work from Michael A Goorjian as the autistic Aaron, the way he is able to embody this character and all his movements and quirks.
