A woman is cleared of murdering her cheating husband by DNA, despite the fact she confessed to being the murderer. As the team search for answers, the phantom murderess may be involved in 21 other crimes. However, the top suspect is only accountable for 3 of the 21 crimes, and is cleared of a fourth by that crime being committed at the exact same time as another. Who or what caused this? Meanwhile, Don's behaviour is called into question after he nearly gets himself killed by hesitating during the armed arrest of the suspect. Written by movieguy3

Did You Know?


Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: [picking Danny up from physical therapy] So what was that?
Detective Danny Messer: What?
Dr. Sheldon Hawkes: Danny, you got to try *way* harder if you're going to get up out of this chair.
Detective Danny Messer: Doc, you know what? I got a policy, buddy. I don't take advice unless I ask for it.

Based on a true story
5 November 2009 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode rang a bell while I was watching it and when I googled it, I realised why. The idea is based on a true story that was reporting in the media in March 2009.



As a story for this show, I think it worked really well. It really makes you think, though, about the assumptions the CSIs have to make about the way they work and the equipment they use. Although the threads of evidence they cling to are so fragile in one sense, they can still pull the investigators way off track with relative ease. When they also have to contend with a legal system that could seize on a screwup like this to cast doubt on all their evidence, the pressure becomes even clearer.
