Did You Know?


Grissom suggests to Catherine that they make it appear as though the baby is still alive when removing him from the vehicle, so the crowd won't know he's dead. So Catherine carries the baby as if he were still alive, then proceeds to place him in the back of the CORONERS van, alone, instead of into an ambulance, which totally negates the pretense.

Three Stories That Aren't What They First Appear
9 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a heat wave going on in Las Vegas and people are asked to be especially careful. In a parking lot, a woman returning to her car notices a baby inside another SUV. She calls for help, someone smashes the window but it's too late: the infant inside is dead. A few minutes later, the father comes out and sees what has happened.

A short time later, "Chief Deputy Jeffrey Sinclair" comes into the crime lab and tells Catherine he wants to press charges against this guy, to make him an example for others who carelessly leave babies in locked cars. (Grissom had remarked earlier that this was the 12th baby to die like this in the past year in Vegas.)

The second story involves a dead woman found by police floating near the shoreline of a lake. Nick and Sara investigate. "Dr. Al Robbins (Robert David hall), the medical examiner, says the woman died of a severe blow to the head. A guy who took her out on the boat is missing.

In a third case, Warrick is called to a house where the superintendent found a tenant sitting dead in his easy chair. The big guy apparently had come home after a three-mile run and collapsed. It looked like heat stroke, especially since he was taking a dangerous diet drug. Gil, taking himself off the baby case and leaving that to Catherine, comes to help Warrick.

As it turns out, not all of these stories turned to out to be crimes. One or more of these were just accidents, but I won't say which. All of these stories aren't what they first appear, either.
