The skeleton in the closet
10 January 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Nothing in this case is like it appears. A gay man is killed inside a city park bathroom, called a 'tea room' in gay circles. Then Carlos Leon is killed and he's a former gang banger who is also a closet case is killed in the same park. He used to hook up with the first deceased.

Leon is killed because the local park drug dealers thought he had ratted them out. His case depends on the eye witness testimony of a mentally retarded man who is a Dustin Hoffman like savant and remembers numbers like those that appear on license plates. But that was the easy one.

It all hearkens back to the first homicide and it turns out that Michael Rispoli one of Leon's other charges is the long lost brother who was sent to Willowbrook Hospital way back when, given up and long forgotten except as the skeleton in the family closet for parents Harris Yulin and Rutanya Alda.

The best part of this episode are the scenes with Jeremy Sisto and Anthony Anderson and the players in the roles of the mentally retarded people. A truly sad situation all around.
