Bloody sheets and an apparently stolen credit card lead Briscoe and Curtis to a pair of college age lovers who present McCoy and Ross with a united front of denial that one of them killed their newborn son and disposed of the body.
Did You Know?
Based on the case of Amy Grossberg and Brian Peterson. On November 12, 1996, Grossberg, then an 18-year-old at the University of Delaware, gave birth to a baby boy in a room at the Comfort Inn in Newark, Delaware. She had hid her pregnancy from everyone but Peterson. Peterson, then an 18-year-old student at Gettysburg College, and Grossberg's longtime boyfriend delivered the child. Conflicting stories have made the subsequent events a mystery to anyone except the couple, but Peterson and Grossberg claim they believed the infant to be stillborn, wrapped him in a garbage bag, and disposed of him in a dumpster. The bloody sheets were discovered by a cleaning woman, who immediately contacted police. After returning to school, Grossberg began to have severe seizures as a result of not having expelled the placenta. She was taken to a hospital, and it was clear to the doctors that she had just given birth. Not long after, police officials and the hospital put the two incidents together. K-9 Police dogs found the body in the dumpster. See more
