Detectives Cerreta and Logan investigate the stabbing death of a young man. He was killed on a street corner in front of several witnesses, none of whom are of much help in identifying the attacker. A store owner identifies a homeless man who lives in a cardboard box outside the store and they eventually identify him as a homeless person who goes by the name of Lemonhead. He proves not to be the attacker and they realize there were two of them at the scene. The second person lives in a cardboard box in Central Park and they soon make an arrest. ADA Stone gets a conviction but soon finds himself in the State Court of Appeal when a lawyer argues that the police did not have a warrant to search his "home" under the tree in the park. Written by
