When a note connected to a supposed suicide is found, the team re-opens a 1994 case of a 16-year-old high-school kid, who fell off the roof of the school building after having served detention. In 1994 the death was deemed a suicide, but the newly-found note indicates that the victim might have been fearing for his life. Written by RRPierre
