Crime clue inaccurate?
11 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I remember this episode correctly, the threads from the pipe that killed the boy in his bed were running horizontally across his temple area. The boy was supposed to have been laying on his bed when hit with the pipe blows and killed. It was determined by the CSI's that he was killed by someone standing by his bed. Not at the head of the bed or at the foot of the bed. If that was the case and the boy was killed by the pipe the pipe threads should have been vertical across and not horizontal. Even though the blood splatter on the tee shirt did help them figure out who killed the boy I think this minor bit of evidence detail was overlooked if I am remembering this episode(Compulsions) properly.
