Did You Know?


The closing credits include a tribute to production assistant Owen Wolf, whose sole CSI credit was this episode. In a quasi-parallel to what happened to Holly Gribbs, Wolf was killed during a robbery at a Costco in Los Angeles on August 13, 2000. See more »


Incorrectly regarded as a goof: When the pager guy got arrested, Sidle said "for a conviction we need a DNA sample. Another scene showed Catherine obtaining evidence under Gribb's fingernails but if you go back to the scene leading to her scratching the attacker and getting shot, she was wearing gloves. While Gribbs was wearing gloves initially, in the flashback towards the end, Gribbs is shown on the floor holding one of her gloves, so she took it off at some point. See more »


Greg Sanders: Cath? Your DNA results are back. According to my DNA data, the chances are 814 quadrillion to one - that your suspect is our killer. Pretty good stats...
Catherine Willows: Yeah, considering there are only six billion people in world.

This episode was dedicated to Owen Wolfe - who was he? Enjoyed the episode but once again a TV show puts a dedication on the end but they never tell you who the person is that they are dedicating the episode to. I have looked on the net but can't find Owen Wolfe anywhere. Does anyone know who this person is? Would appreciate it any information. Thank you. Now I'll just have to fill space because they want 10 lines So this will be my last, well apparently it's not all, I have to keep typing until it tells me I can post my question. They must get a lot of people just gabbing away on here - let's try now. So now I'll just type some things like we went to the beach today and the wind was pretty cold but the kids enjoyed it. Hopefully it will warm up tomorrow and especially on Saturday since we will be going to Toronto for the weekend. Maybe this will be enough - if nothing else it helps with the typing practice. so thank you for listening and hopefully someone will have an answer for me.
