Storyline

Las Vegas is flooded with college girl disappearances and bloody murders, as soon turns out using the MO of Seattle serial killer Jared Briscoe, arrested by Russels and Finlay when cops there, whose last appeal on death row recently was refused. It seems a copycat, with macabre extensions to his method, consisting in pre-staging CSI forensic research, using victim parts. Daniel Shaw, also ex-Seattle PD, now PI, offers to team up as his present partner Emily Barston is missing while they looked for a missing Vegas student girl, but is turned out she was killed herself while working on a trail pointing at Briscoe's twin, adopted by better parents and now an untouchable businessman. Russel stars doubting if Jared was the mastermind. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Eckley confronts Russell about Russell having a suspect on death row in Washington State moved to Las Vegas so Russell could interview him. This would never happen, as protocol is to have the investigator go to the inmate. This situation would not be approved due to the cost of moving the inmate vs. investigator travel along with the security risk. See more »
