DNA from the blood identifies three mashed-up gun runners: Hector Malcas, Eddie Padura and Pedro Rupan. There is also a cigarette with prints from Gabriel Soto. ATF sends Customs official Tanya Thorpe, who confirms there was a secret operation to trick illegal arms sale to the Middle East.

The syringe that was used for the murder was speckled by laser printing toner powder, while in the imagery it was used to inject ink to an inkjet cartridge. The toner powder can't and won't be injected - there are filling holes with stoppers in the laser cartridges, and the toner is added by shaking through a funnel. Cross-contamination between the two different kinds of printing color would render the cartridges, as well as the inkjet head and laser drum unusable. See more »
