Storyline

Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the death of 36 year-old Jeanine McBride who is found in a park, shot in the head. The medical examiner determines that she was suffocated before she was shot. Until recently, she worked at the White House and had subsequently been transferred to Baltimore as a director of the Social Security Administration. In Baltimore, Detectives Munch and Sheppard check out her house and learn that her car has been missing for several days. From the evidence it appears she was killed in Baltimore and dumped in New York. Working together, the four detectives eventually find a witness who saw the victim leave a club with Chesley Purcell. While they attempt to find her, ADA McCoy comes up against an independent prosecutor who has an inexplicable interest in the case. Written by garykmcd
