Deputy Chief Johnson and her team investigate the rape and murder of a 13 year-old girl, Marta Alvarez. Her mother Carmen worked as a domestic for the Phillips family and she disappeared after school 2 days before her body was found. Suspicion falls upon Carmen's cousin, Alejandro Gutierrez, who also worked for the Phillips' as their gardener and seems to be smuggling Mexicans into the United States. When the killer is finally identified, he flees to Mexico as they will not extradite him unless the US waives the death penalty. Brenda and Fritz travel to Mexico to try and talk him into returning voluntarily but when he flatly refuses to do so, Brenda puts her backup plan into action. Written by

Look, I don't like this kind of investigation any more than the rest of you, but I want to go to sleep at night knowing that we've buried the killer and not his crimes. Thank you.
