Trivia

This episode very closely parallels the murder case of Mark Winger convicted of murdering Roger Harrington and his wife Donnah in August of 1995 in St. Louis MO with the roles reversed. The Forensic Files episode aired August 7th 2003 titled "A Welcome Intrusion" covered this case. See more »

Goofs

Sara Jackson's body was found on the sculpture in middle of the atrium, at least 6 feet from the wall. Since she was hanging from her killer's arm by the railing, she should have fallen straight down and missed the sculpture. See more »

Detective Mac Taylor: Not all from the same person I hope.
Adam Ross: According to the DNA results, ding-ding-ding you are correct.

Things Get More Than Catty In This Entertaining One
13 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't want to give too many things away but I am glad to see the writers aren't totally politically-correct in here where only males (usually Caucasions) can commit all the nasty crimes. It's usually the case, but not always.

Melina Kanakaredes as "Stella" plays a major role in this episode as she heads one of the cases, a case in which she can "identify." She gets a little emotional, as she admits, and I'm surprised she was given the case by her boss "Mac" (Gary Sinise) but she does fine with it, especially when she figures it out.

That crime scene in her case, involving a husband-and-wife and third party, oddly enough, is very close in time and proximity to the first crime scene which is the main one featured on this episode. Over and over and over they show a young girl dangling from a balcony and then falling to her death. They overplay that scene but the case is intriguing enough as we see beautiful-but-shallow characters in the world of professional modeling. (CSI shows usually feature "beautiful-but-shallow" people, especially in the Miami spin off.)

This episode is entertaining, which is all we ask.
