Lt. Rod Blake
Oh, hello. I'm Rod Blake, chief investigator for the Nevada state troopers. This branch came from a tree that grows in Southern Nevada. There's nothing special about the tree except that it's an American variety of the tree from which Judas is supposed to have hung himself. Well, the tree this came from wasn't big enough for a hanging, but it did help us catch a couple of killers. You'll see how in a case called, "The Judas Tree".
