#203 : Régression mortelle

Grissom enquête sur un prétendu suicide ayant eu lieu sur un chantier de construction. Contre la volonté du Shériff, Grissom cherche à savoir ce qui s'est réellement passé sur ce chantier. Il pense que le suicide est un homicide en réalité, et utilise adroitement les théories de l'electrocution pour confondre l'assassin. Pendant ce temps, Nick et Catherine se penchent sur un cas d'homicide avec des fibres "angora" comme seuls indices. Un adolescent décède durant une séance de psychanalyse effectuée avec une psychothérapeute, et les traces de fibres "angora" sur les sous-vêtements de la victime laissent à croire que cette dernière utilise des méthodes d'analyses peu conventionnelles durant ses thérapies.

Vue sur Vegas

Sur un chantier d’une nouvelle prison, un ouvrier arrive en retard. Pendant qu’il parle avec son patron, un ouvrier tombe sur sa voiture. La police arrive. Tout le monde pense à un suicide et veut classer l’affaire. Seul Grissom pense que ça relève de la criminelle car (il s’adresse au sheriff) le jour où il voudra se suicider, il ira travailler ?

Générique

Grissom se rend sur la scène du crime avec le chef de chantier et le sheriff. Le chef touche 20000 dollars par jour d’avance et il a 8 jours d’avance. Grissom en déduit qu’il met la pression à ses ouvriers. La victime, Roger Valenti, installait des câbles au dernier étage. Il y a une perceuse qui pend, et on peut constater qu’il y a eu un court circuit. Mais ça ne peut pas être la cause de la mort, le disjoncteur aurait dû empêcher ça. Grissom va inspecter la branche de la perceuse et remarque qu’elle a été sabotée. Le disjoncteur ne peut donc pas marcher. Il ramasse une pince par terre qui aurait pu couper la branche et relève une empreinte.

Catherine et Nick arrivent sur une scène de crime dans une maison. La victime est un garçon de 14 ans. Il n’était pas seul, sa psychologue était avec lui. Le Dr Leigh Sapien dit qu’elle reçoit les patients quand ils en ont besoin, aussi à une heure tardive. Dylan souffrait d’épilepsie et qu’il a fait une crise au milieu d’une séance. Nick voit une fibre sur le pull de la psy et demande de l’adhésif. Catherine prélève la fibre.

Grissom est chez le légiste. Tous les os de Roger sont brisés, comme lors d’une chute. Pas de trace de brûlures. Mais Grissom pense qu’il est mort électrocuté.

Grissom et Sara cherchent des indices mais Sara ne sait pas quoi chercher vu que le corps indique que la cause de la mort est une chute. Grissom lui dit de chercher quelque chose qu’ils ne voient pas, peut-être une contradiction avec la chute. Il remarque que les fils de la perceuse sont inversés, la polarité est donc inversée. La semelle en caoutchouc aurait dû le protéger mais il y a un clou dedans, qui est conducteur d’électricité. Il y a eu tentative de meurtre.

Warrick cherche des empreintes sur la pince. Il y a des paris qui courent dans la labo sur la réussite deGrissom : a-t-il tort ? Sera-t-il viré ? Les empreintes de Robert Harris, le chef de chantier, sont sur la pince.

Grissom l’interroge. Robert dit que c’est normal, ses empreintes sont partout sur le chantier. Le sheriff veut classer l’affaire et rouvrir le chantier. Brass informe Grissom que le mort était un ouvrier syndiqué qui voulait des congés, une grève et qui ne mâchait pas ses mots. En plus, Robert était témoin au mariage du sheriff.
Grissom
dit au sheriff que la perceuse a été sabotée et qu’ils n’ont qu’un seul suspect.Robert dit qu’il était pas opposé à Roger, lui-même est syndiqué.

Nick analyse les vêtements de Dylan. Il trouve les mêmes fibres sur son caleçon que sur le pull de la psy. Il parle à la mère qui sort de la salle d’autopsie. Elle dit que tout allait bien hier soir et s’excuse, elle doit régler beaucoup de choses pour l’enterrement.
Nick
va voir doc Robbins. La mort est due à une fracture crânienne. Il a le corps couvert de bleus et des fibres partout. Lors de sa mort, il était donc à moitié nu chez sa psy. Nick se demande quel genre de thérapie cette psy pratique.

Grissom rentre du chantier. Un homme lui dit avoir des informations. Il était en réunion du syndicat et que la grève était son idée mais que sa famille avait été menacée, c’est pourquoi Roger avait pris le relai.

Au labo, Greg dit que les fibres prélevées sur Dylan et la psy sont de l’angora.

Grissom va voir doc et demande à revoir le corps mais il est déjà parti aux pompes funèbres. Il relit donc les notes du légiste avec lui. La victime avait un taux de proponine élevé, comme après une électrocution ou un infarctus. Ila vait aussi 6 à 7 fois le taux normal de fer dans le sang. Grissomdemande si ses testicules étaient atrophiés, mais le doc ne sait pas.

Sara, Greg et Warrick sont en salle de repos, le sheriff leur a dit d’arrêter l’enquête en cours. Grissom se met en colère et leur donne de nouvelles tâches : Sara va relever les empreintes sur les bottes et comparer la pince avec les empreintes sur la branche.Grissom et Warrick vont aux pompes funèbres et inspectent le corps. Roger Valenti a bien les testicules atrophiés, signe d’une mort par électrocution. Ils prélèvent aussi du sang.Sara a une empreinte sur le clou, mais la pince ne correspond pas.

Catherine et Nick mangent et ont demandé une commission rogatoire. O Brian leur dit qu’ils ont eu de la chance de l’obtenir. Nick s’énerve et dit de la chance ? Ils ont des fibres sur Dylan et sur la psy ! La psy a eu une relation avec un de ses jeunes patients, et ils ont eu la commission uniquement grâce à ça.

Grissom dénude des fils et fait une expérience avec une ampoule. Warrick lui donne la poche de sang de Roger Valenti. Grissom s’en sert comme conducteur de courant. L’ampoule s’allume : il avait donc assez de fer dans le sang pour conduire l’électricité.

Nick prélève des fibres du tapis chez la psy, qui n’aime pas être vue comme suspecte.Catherine a trouvé une couverture en angora dans l’armoire. Nick croit que la psy a abusé de Dylan. Elle se défend en disant qu’elle n’est pas une sainte, mais pas une satyre : Dylan a fait une crise d’épilepsie.

Grissom continue son expérience : il prend un cornichon du déjeuner de Sara et le branche. Le cornichon chauffe, est électrocuté mais comme il contient beaucoup de sel, il n’y a pas de traces de brûlure. Le corps de Roger n’offrait aucune résistance à l’électricité et n’a donc pas eu de marques. Ils cherchent à qui appartient l’empreinte sur le clou : elle n’est pas à Roger Harris. Grissom fait des recherches sur Ian Wolf, l’homme qui lui avait parlé du syndicat et avait orienté ses recherches. Le sheriff informe Grissom qu’il a prévu une interview pour qu’il fasse ses excuses publiques.

Nick analyse la couverture en angora. Catherine arrive avec le rapport toxicologique : le taux de créatine de Dylan est normal, il n’a donc pas fait de crise d’épilepsie. Nick était déjà au courant car il a demandé une copie du rapport. Catherine lui dit qu’il est trop impliqué et veut lui retirer l’affaire. Nicklui révèle alors qu’il a été abusé par sa baby-sitter quand il était petit et que cette affaire le touche.Catherine est désolée et lui promet de trouver la vérité.

Jim Brass interroge Ian Wolf. Il avoue avoir balancé un outil sur Valenti mais pas plus. Il s’en va et ne parlera pas sans un avocat.

Greg analyse l’ADN de la couverture. Il y a celui de Dylan, de la psy et un autre code génétique, proche de celui de Dylan. Son père étant mort, c’est celui de sa mère.

Grissom et Sara comparent l’empreinte sur le clou avec celle d’Ian. Ils obtiennent une commission rogatoire pour ses outils.

Le doc Robbins a retrouvé des fibres angora dans la bouche et le nez de Dylan. Il était donc dans la couverture. Nick et Sara interrogent la mère et la psy. Elles avouent pratiquer la thérapie de la renaissance, dans laquelle il faut renaître du ventre de la mère. Dylan était dans la couverture de son plein gré et se débattait. Sa mère l’a poussé contre le sol, la psy lui disant que c’était normal qu’il se débatte. Mais il ne pouvait plus respirer et est mort dans la couverture.

Warrick analyse les outils d’Ian : les marques de la pince correspondent. Grissom prévientBrass pour aller l’arrêter. Il est arrêté et accusé de meurtre avec préméditation, vu le sabotage.

Le sheriff demande Grissom et lui dit qu’il n’a pas d’excuses à faire.

premises.  It stops by a man in a green hard hat, the supervisor.)

CONSTRUCTION SUPERVISOR:  You're late

CONSTRUCTION WORKER (IN TRUCK):  Thursday night.  Traffic on the strip.

CONSTRUCTION SUPERVISOR:  Yeah.  Every night.  Traffic on the Strip.  We're on a

GRISSOM:  Man versus Gravity. 

(He looks down at the body and shakes his head.)

GRISSOM:  Man lost.

ROBERT HARRIS:  I think that was his point.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Hello, Bob.

ROBERT HARRIS:  Hello,  Brian.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Grissom, what are you doing here?

GRISSOM:  What do you think?

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  I didn't use the word "homicide."

GRISSOM:  Dispatch called.  The body's on county property.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  We're not looking at a crime here.  Bob explained it to
me on the phone.  His guy was alone up there.  He jumped.  It was suicide.

GRISSOM:  Then why are you here, Sheriff?

ROBERT HARRIS:  Look.  Roger Valenti was an unhappy guy.  Money problems. Family
problems.  He took the easy way out.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  It's a tragedy, but it's not a crime.

GRISSOM:  Suicide, huh?  I don't know, Brian.  On the day you decide to end your
life, why would you go to work?

SCENE #03:

[INT. CONSTRUCTION SITE -ELEVATOR - NIGHT]

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Fourteen hundred new beds means 1,400 criminals off the
street.  That old jail's maxed.  Prisoner population's increased by ten percent
in one year.  If this place isn't built soon, you do the math

GRISSOM:  You look like the Sheriff, but you talk like the Mayor.  Mr. Harris,
you get an extra bonus for early completion? 

ROBERT HARRIS:  Twenty grand a day.  I'm ten days ahead. 

GRISSOM:  Wow, $200,000.  You must work your guys pretty hard, huh?

(The elevator stops and everyone gets off.)

[INT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - 12TH FLOOR - NIGHT -- CONTINUOUS] 

GRISSOM:  Where exactly was Valenti's work station?

ROBERT HARRIS:  He had the whole floor to himself.  Valenti was usually my first
guy up.  He would drill the holes for the safety cables.  No one walks a new
slab until the cables are looped around the perimeter.

(Quick Flashback showing Valenti drilling in the holes for the cables.  Flash to
white.  Resume to present.)

GRISSOM:  Terminal velocity's 9.8 meters per second, squared.  He would've hit
the ground at under five seconds.

(A Siren wails in the background.)

(GRISSOM, wearing a white visitor's hard hat, walks to the edge of the floor. 
He puts his kit down and kneels on the ground to look over the edge.)

(FLASH POV:  As he peers over the edge, the figure of VALENTI'S body falls past
him and straight down to the impact point on the ground beneath them.  End of
Flash.  Resume to present.)

(GRISSOM looks around and notices the drill hanging off the side of the floor. 
He pulls it up.)

GRISSOM:  Did this belong to Mr. Valenti

ROBERT HARRIS:  Well, like I said he was the only one up here.

(GRISSOM examines the drill and notices that the metal housing is charred.)

GRISSOM:  This drill is shorted out.  Do you think he "jumped" before or after
he got the shock of his life?

ROBERT HARRIS:  GFCI would have prevented shock.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY: What is GFCI? 

ROBERT HARRIS:  The Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter.

GRISSOM:  Big words meaning you won't get electrocuted.

(GRISSOM grabs his kit and notices the outlet.  He moves to examine the plug and
notices that the third prong of the plug is cut in half.)

ROBERT HARRIS:  You see, if there's and electrical imbalance the GFCI trips the
circuit and the tools are suppose to shut itself off.

GRISSOM:  But if the third prong of the plug is compromised, the interrupter
won't work.  Will it, Bob? 

ROBERT HARRIS:  The third prong grounds the drill.  Without it, the
interrupter's useless.

GRISSOM:  These prongs don't usually snap off by themselves.

(GRISSOM looks around and sees a pair of metal cutters on the floor nearby.)

GRISSOM:  Are all your workers this careless with their tools?

(He reaches into his CSI kit and pulls out pexi-glass, portable evidence box and
begins to set up a chamber to super-glue the prints into the handle of the
tool.)

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  You mind telling me what you're doing?

GRISSOM:  These cutters may have been used to tamper with the grounding prong.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  What happened to good old-fashioned dusting for prints?

GRISSOM:  When your crime scene is twelve stories up ... I don't want to take
any chances.  I'm going to lock in these prints.

(The gas heats up and fills the containers.  Fingerprints appear on the tool's
handle.)

(CATHERINE and NICK walk up to the house.  They're met by DETECTIVE O'RILEY.)

CATHERINE:  Hey, O'Riley, we got the 419.

O'RILEY:  Dylan Buckley-- 14 years old.

(They enter the house where the boy's body is on the floor.)

SGT. O'RILEY:  Paramedics pronounced.  Coroner's on his way.

NICK:  Was he home alone?

SGT. O'RILEY:  Not alone.  And not his home.  (From behind him, a woman dressed
in white approaches.)  Catherine Willows, Nick Stokes, crime lab.  Dr. Leigh
Sapien.  This is her residence.

CATHERINE:  Well, good.  Then you can fill us in.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  We were in the middle of a session.

CATHERINE:  You're a Therapist.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Psychiatrist.

CATHERINE:  And why were you seeing Dylan?

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Doctor-Patient privilege.

NICK:  Privilege doesn't extend post-mortem.

CATHERINE:  We can always get a warrant to get your records.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  No need.  Dylan suffered from Reactive Attachment Disorder. 
He was with his mother and I've been treating him for sixteen months.

CATHERINE:  Ten o'clock at night.  You use your home?

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  I see my patients whenever they need me.  On weekends, at
night.  At the office or here ...

NICK:  (interrupting)  Why don't you ... just tell us what happened.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Dylan had an argument with his mother.  He needed to unload. 

(Quick Flashback during v.o. showing DYLAN BUCKLEY sitting on the couch across
from DR. LEIGH SAPIEN talking to her. White Flash to DYLAN BUCKLEY convulsing on
the couch and falling to the floor.  DR. LEIGH SAPIEN trying to hold his head
still.  DYLAN BUCKLEY hitting his head multiple times on the floor while
seizing.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  He was complaining about his curfew blaming his mother for
problems at school.  Suddenly, he began to convulse.  I tried to stabilize his
head.  I thought it was grand mal seizure.  Dylan was an epileptic.  He hit his
head.  And when the convulsions stopped he was dead.

CATHERINE:  Did you try to revive him.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Of course, standard CPR.  Cleared his airway, worked his
chest.

(NICK sees something on DR. LEIGH SAPIEN'S white sweater.)

NICK:  I take it this wasn't his first convulsion.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  He was diagnosed with epilepsy at age 3.

(NICK slowly approaches DR. LEIGH SAPIEN in a manner that startles her.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  What are you doing?

NICK:  Catherine, we need to get a tape-lift here, please.

(CATHERINE conducts the tape-lift and NICK moves behind DR. SAPIEN looking for
anything else they may need.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Look, I dialed 9-1-1.  I'm not hiding anything.

CATHERINE:  I can see that.

[INT. CSI -- FORENSIC AUTOPSY BAY]

(GRISSOM enters the morgue. ROBBINS is there to brief him over the body.)

ROBBINS:  Quick.  Name three human bones that can stand a twelve story drop.

GRISSOM:  Bones of the inner ear:  Malleus, Incus, Stapes.  High cellular
density, completely protected by the skull.  Why?

ROBBINS:  They appear to be the only bones not fractured or broken.

GRISSOM:  I want to see the entry and exit wounds.

ROBBINS:  Gil, he wasn't shot.  This is the guy that fell of the new jailhouse. 
Are we talking about the same case here?

GRISSOM:  He fell after he was electrocuted.

ROBBINS:  News to me.  I didn't find any physical evidence of electrocution.

GRISSOM:  Faulty drill.  There should be burn marks on one of his palms.

(Flash CGI POV of the current deceased's right hand (without burn marks)
morphing to a hand with burn marks as an electric sizzle moves from the palm up
the deceased's arm.  The electric sizzle moves back down the deceased's arm
toward the palm leaving the current unmarked skin behind.  End of Flash.)

ROBBINS:  Negative on the burn marks.  In most electrocution cases, capillaries
rupture, hemoglobin leaks into the perivascular tissue.

GRISSOM:  Right. creating a fern-like pattern on the chest.

(Flash CGI POV of the current deceased's unmarked chest.  An electric sizzle
moves from the deceased's lower right side up and across the chest leaving the
pattern behind.  The electric sizzle moves back down the deceased's chest
leaving the current unmarked skin behind.  Flash to white and back to the
present.)

ROBBINS:  His body contradicts your crime scene.

GRISSOM:  I don't care what the body says, this guy was electrocuted.  It was
not an accident.

SCENE #06:

[INT. CSI -- TRACE LAB]

(GRISSOM is working on the drill, trying to get the outside casing off so that
he can look at its insides.  On the same table some distance away, SARA is
staring at the pair of boots from the deceased.  She stares at them some more. 
She looks up.  She sighs.)

GRISSOM:  What?

SARA:  I don't know what I'm looking for.

GRISSOM:  Signs of charring or melting.  You've done this before.

SARA:  Yeah.  But we always go back to the body.  The body tells a story and in
this case, the body says there was no crime and you're not listening.  Why?

GRISSOM:  Every now and then, we have to break the rules.  Start with a
conclusion and work our way backwards.

SARA:  Like, for instance, when we don't agree with the coroner's report?

GRISSOM:  Like, for instance ... in the 1800s, when surgery was Russian roulette
and patients were dying on the tables.

SARA:  Germs.

GRISSOM:  Until Louis Pasteur theorized that something we could not see,
microscopic organisms were attacking the patients.

SARA:  Relevance ...

GRISSOM:  Bodies tell a story because we interpret them the way our predecessors
taught us to.  Just because we don't see something we're supposed to see doesn't
mean that it's not there.

(SARA goes back to work on the boots.  GRISSOM gets the drill open and starts
digging through it.  He immediately notices that someone crossed the hot wire
with the neutral wire.)

GRISSOM:  Wires were crossed.  (This gets SARA's attention.)  Polarity's been
reversed.  This confirms that someone tampered with Valenti's drill.

SARA:  The rubber soles of his boots should have protected him from the
electrical shock.  That is why you're safe when you're in a car during a
lightening storm. You're insulated by the rubber tires.

(SARA picks up the boots and holds it up.  From GRISSOM'S POV, he can see the
bottom of the shoes.  He also sees something else on the bottom of the right
boot.)

GRISSOM: Rubber's an insulator, but metal's a conductor.  What form of metal
hides in plain view at a construction site?

(Flash POV close up to the nail in the bottom of the boot.)

SARA:  A nail.

[INT. CSI - PRINT LAB]

(CLOSE UP of computer screen as the palm print on the left is compared to the
palm print on the right.  SARA enters the lab.  WARRICK is seated at the
computer.  He's running the print through the database.)

SARA:  Hey.

WARRICK:  Hey.

SARA:  How's that palm print Grissom got off those cutters?

WARRICK:  Good. I'm running it through AFIS right now. The good thing is that
the jailhouse is a union gig and all the union guys are already in the database. 
What I did for the print was I lined up a ridge detail from the partial that I
found on each handle.

SARA:  Nice.

(WARRICK sighs.)

WARRICK:  So ... you think that guy fried before he fell?

SARA:  I don't know.  We found a nail in his boot.  It could have pierced the
protective rubber.  It might have allowed electricity to course through his
body.

WARRICK:  Bobby Dawson's taking odds.  Two to one, Grissom's wrong.  Five to
one, he gets suspended for shutting down that jailhouse.  And ten to one ...

SARA:  Fired?

(Computer beeps.  WARRICK manually lines up the two palm prints.  The computer
screen reads: 

"FILE HR_145406 AT6501(?)" in green with the words:  "MATCH FOUND" (blinking in

(GRISSOM is talking with ROBERT HARRIS.  SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY is also there.)

ROBERT HARRIS:  My prints are on the metal cutters because my prints are all
over everything at the site.  I'm the project manager.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  There's no mystery here.

GRISSOM: You're the project manager but you don't actually use all the tools,
right?

ROBERT HARRIS:  I'm vigilant about safety.  I'm always inspecting the equipment,
tools ...

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Look, this is what's going to happen here.  The
construction site is going to reopen and the investigation goes away.

GRISSOM:  Sure.  After the lab processes all the evidence.

(Behind the group, through the glass wall, BRASS is standing there.  He taps on
the window to get GRISSOM'S attention.)

GRISSOM:  Excuse me.

(GRISSOM and BRASS talk out in the hallway.)

BRASS:  For the record, I don't like being put in the middle.

GRISSOM:  Who does?

BRASS:  I did a little homework on the guy who took a nosedive after he was
electrocuted.  Three days ago, he was voted union rep.  Demanded more overtime
pay, pressed for a walkout.

GRISSOM:  Motive?

BRASS:  Right.  (he turns to leave, then stops.)  Well, in case you're
interested Bob Harris was the sheriff's best man.

(GRISSOM turns to go back to meet with ROBERT HARRIS and THE SHERIFF.)

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Well, what was that about?

GRISSOM:  Ah, we're in a bowling league together.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Can we wrap this up?

GRISSOM:  Sure.  Someone tampered with Roger Valenti's drill.  And I have only
one suspect.  (He looks at ROBERT HARRIS.)

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  I read the coroner's prelim.  There is nothing in it
about electrocution.

GRISSOM:  That's why they call it a prelim.  Mr. Harris, were you opposed to
Roger Valenti's union activities?

ROBERT HARRIS:  Of course not.  I'm a union man myself.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  You're fishing, Gil.  We're done here.  Moving on.

ROBBINS:  Possibly.

NICK:  I found tan fibers on his boxers.

ROBBINS:  You, too, huh?  His body's covered in them.

NICK:  Fibers on his body and his underwear but not on his shirt and pants, why?

ROBBINS:  Well, maybe it was as simple as he wasn't wearing his shirt and pants.

NICK:  Okay, then at some point he was with his Shrink in his underwear.

ROBBINS:  Exactly what kind of therapy was this?

(GRISSOM parks his car in front of the LAS VEGAS POLICE DEPARTMENT.  He gets out
and makes his way to the building entrance.  He's stopped on the sidewalk.  From
behind him, a hand grabs him by the shoulder.)

IAN WOLF:  Gil Grissom?

GRISSOM:  Yes.

IAN WOLF:  I have information about Roger Valenti.

GRISSOM:  Call Jim Brass at homicide.

(GRISSOM turns around to leave.  The man stops him again.)

IAN WOLF:  I was the union rep before Roger.  The walkout was my idea.  Bob
Harris threatened me and my family.  I wouldn't betray the union so I gave up my
position at the local.  Roger picked up where I left off.

GRISSOM:  Why are you telling me this?

IAN WOLF:  Because it could have been me.

CATHERINE:   Goat cheese,  goat milk.

NICK:   Goat ... sweaters?

CATHERINE:  Angora.

GREG:  Ding, ding, ding.  Fibers from the lady shrink, fibers from the boy. 
Both are angora.

(GREG hands CATHERINE an opened book.)

NICK:  Angora is processed goat hair?

GREG:  Mm-hmm.

CATHERINE:  Sheered, washed, spun and dyed.  Angora's 100% goat.  You didn't

ROBBINS:  No can do.  Released six hours ago.

GRISSOM:  Final report?

ROBBINS:  Another 24, but there's nothing in there to support Valenti was
electrocuted.

on the seat next to him.)

GRISSOM:  So, what have you got?  I mean, anything unusual, even the mundane.

ROBBINS:  His troponin enzymes are elevated.

GRISSOM:  Troponin levels become elevated following ventricular fibrillation
which could be caused by electrocution, right?

ROBBINS:  Sure, but troponin's found in all victims of cardiac arrest, most of
whom have not been zapped.

GRISSOM:  Work with me, will you?

ROBBINS:  Uh, vic also had an elevated concentration of iron in his blood --
six, seven times normal.

GRISSOM:  Life-threatening?

ROBBINS:  No.

GRISSOM:  What else?

ROBBINS:  Well, it fits the bill of "mundane."  His skin looked jaundiced.

GRISSOM:  Postmortem deoxygenation.

ROBBINS:  Dead or alive, your vic's epidermis is yellow.

GRISSOM:  Tell me about his testicles.

ROBBINS:  (surprised)  What?  ...  Okay, I'm working with you.  Uh, I don't
remember.  I mean, genetics can be fascinating -- and there are things I take
note of -- but I didn't focus on his genitals.

GRISSOM:  What're you guys doing?

SARA:  Waiting for an assignment.  You got a new case for us?

GRISSOM:  A new case?

WARRICK:  Well, we heard the sheriff put the brakes on the investigation.

GRISSOM:  You didn't hear that from me, did you?

(GREG takes the hint, gathers his things up and stands up to leave.)

GREG:  I think I smell something burning in the DNA lab.  Love to stay and chat,
but ...

(He almost makes it to the door when ... )

GRISSOM:  Greg ... I hope that's not the crossword puzzle.

(GREG stops, turns around and silently hands the folded origami crane to GRISSOM
and leaves.  Yep, it looks like the used the crossword puzzle as paper.)

GRISSOM  :  What about the nail that we pulled out of Valenti's boot?  Dusted?

SARA:  No, because ...

GRISSOM:  (interrupting)  Process the nail, please.  And if you get a print ...

(SARA stands and heads out the door.)

SARA:  I'll compared it to Bob Harris' ten card.  Anything else?

GRISSOM:  Yes. Metal cutters.  I need you to prove or disprove whether they were
used to sever the drill's grounding prong.

SARA:  Okay.

place.  Vivaldi's Four Seasons is playing rather loudly in the background.  They
walk to the back where we find MR. RANDY GESEK, Funeral Director, air conducting
enthusiastically to the music.)

GRISSOM:  Mr. Gesek!

(RANDY GESEK turns around, slightly embarrassed.)

GRISSOM:  You're conducting ...

(He turns the tape recorder near by off.  He's out of breath.)

RANDY GESEK:  I didn't hear you come in.

GRISSOM:  ... Vivaldi, Four Seasons.

RANDY GESEK:  Vivaldi ... Valenti.  Both Italians.  It's like being in Venice. 
Why are you here?  Do I need a lawyer?

GRISSOM:  Have you prepped him yet?

RANDY GESEK:  I was just about to commence draining when I got distracted.

GRISSOM:  Yeah, I know, Venice.  I need to see his testicles.

RANDY GESEK:  I always thought there was something weird about you. 

(GRISSOM approaches the body, getting ready to lift the sheet up when GESEK
stops him.) 

RANDY GESEK:  Excuse me.  You can't just come in here and look at my guy's
goods.  If I let you see them I have to let everybody see them.  But ... perhaps
we can work something out.

WARRICK:  What? Do you want us to pay to see them?

RANDY GESEK:  That's a good idea, but no.  I'm starting a new business.  Crime
scene cleanup.   I'm going to want some referrals.

GRISSOM:  I'll put you on the list. 

(GRISSOM puts on the latex gloves and lifts up the sheets to look at MR.
VALENTI.)

GRISSOM:  Testicular atrophy.  They're the size of peas. 

RANDY GESEK:  Poor guy.

WARRICK:  Yeah, that's rough.  And the significance of this evidence?

GRISSOM:  Hemochromatosis.  Valenti had elevated levels of iron in his blood. 
Yellow pallor, shrunken testicles ... I think he's been ingesting trace amounts
of iron over a long period of time.

RANDY GESEK:  Why'd he eat iron?

WARRICK:  Trace amounts are odorless, tasteless.

RANDY GESEK:  He probably didn't even know.  You're saying he was poisoned?

GRISSOM:  No. Iron molecules take a long time to build up.  Could have been his
diet repeated blood transfusions, excessive smoking possibly hereditary
abnormalities.

WARRICK:  So, where does this get us?

GRISSOM:  One step closer.  Mr. Gesek?  Stick a syringe in his carotid all the
way to his clavicle.

WARRICK:  You want his blood?

GRISSOM:  One pint, to go.

SARA:  Warrick.

WARRICK:  Hey.

SARA:  I got a thumbprint off that nail.

WARRICK:  Cool.

SARA:  Only a partial.  Print lab's running a comparison.

WARRICK:  Whatever happened with those metal cutters?

SARA:  Serrations didn't match up.  They weren't used on the grounding prong. 
What's in the envelope?

WARRICK:  Roger Valenti's blood.  Grissom wants it packaged in plastic.  I don't
know.  Don't ask.

NICK:  And you were okay sharing your problems with a complete stranger?

CATHERINE:  Rather I tell them to you?

(SGT. O'RILEY parks his car across the street and gets out.)

SGT. O'RILEY:  Somebody order a warrant?

NICK:  Yeah.

SGT. O'RILEY:  Mustard and relish.  Hold the onions.

NICK:  I hope it's a general.

SGT. O'RILEY:  Epilepsy.  Eyewitness physician dials 9-1-1.  Coroner's not
making any noise.  You're lucky to get a limited.

NICK:  What do you mean, we're lucky?  We've got fibers on a 14-year-old kid 
and the shrink's clothing.

SGT. O'RILEY:  Which would have got you nothing.  But I did a background check
on the good doctor.  While back, she had her license suspended.  Sex with a
patient.  Teen's parents filed a complaint with the A.P.A.

GRISSOM:  Thank you.

WARRICK:  You want to fill me in here?  I mean, this wasn't covered in any
science class I took.

GRISSOM:  Well, iron is a conductive mineral.  I want to know if there was
enough iron in Valenti's blood to conduct electricity.

WARRICK:  That's far out.

GRISSOM:  Yeah, well ... we'll see.  Plug in the blood.

NICK:  Then maybe you should wait outside.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Do you consider me a suspect?  Because that's how I'm
feeling.

(NICK doesn't respond.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Fine. Don't answer me.  It's your choice.

NICK:  That's the funny thing about choices.  Once you make them you have to
live with them.

(He shakes his head.)

NICK:  Dylan Buckley was just a boy.  He trusted you and you abused that trust.

(CATHERINE appears holding a folded tan-colored blanket wrapped in plastic.)

CATHERINE:  Linen closet, top shelf.

NICK:  Was that blanket here ... on the floor?

NICK:   He was a 14-year-old kid.  What's the matter with you?

CATHERINE:  He resisted; you persisted.  Then what?

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Look, I don't know the basis of your allegations but I have
never crossed the line with a patient.

NICK:  That's not what your rap sheet says.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  "Rap sheet"?

CATHERINE:  Sex with an underage patient.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  I was a resident.  He was 17.  We were in ... look, no
criminal charges were filed.  It should have been expunged from my record.

CATHERINE:  It doesn't make you any less guilty.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Lady, I'm not a saint but I am not a killer or a child
molester.  Dylan Buckley was an epileptic.  He had a seizure.  He hit his head.

GRISSOM:  Hey, is that from the deli?

SARA:  Egg salad sandwich.  You want half?

GRISSOM:  No.  Can I have your pickle?

(GRISSOM wires up SARA'S pickle and places it on an upside down petrie dish. 
Completely curious at what he could possibly want with her pickle, SARA walks in
and lingers near the doorway while finishing up her sandwich.  GRISSOM plugs it
in and fires up SARA'S pickle.  It lights up.  It flickers.  It crackles.  It
sizzles.  It glows.)

SARA:  You turned my pickle into a light bulb.

GRISSOM:  I'm electrocuting it.

SARA:  (amused)  You sure are.

WARRICK:  That would explain that smell.

GRISSOM:  This is how I cooked my hot dogs in college.

(He unplugs the pickle and holds it up for everyone to examine.)

GRISSOM:  Check out the burn marks.

SARA:  There are none.

WARRICK:  Just like Valenti's body.  No evidence of electrocution.

GRISSOM:  Pickles are high in sodium content.

WARRICK:  And sodium is conductive, just like iron.

GRISSOM:  Normally, the flow of electricity through a body generates heat.

(FLASHBACK POV showing us a crackle of electricity passing down a golf club
through the person holding it.  A CGI electric sizzle asses through the man's
shirt showing us the fern-like pattern underneath.  Cut to the man's legs as we
follow the electric current flow down the man's legs and into the ground.  Cut
back to present.)

GRISSOM:  Burn marks are the physical evidence of that heat.  But ... if the
body offers no resistance to the flow of electricity-no heat, no burn marks.

WARRICK:  Roger Valenti's body offered up no resistance because of the excess
iron in his blood.

SARA:  The iron conducted the electricity.

WARRICK:  Making his body one big wire -- path to ground.

SARA:  In through his hand from the drill; out through the nail in the boot.

GRISSOM:  No burn marks, but he was still electrocuted.

(GRISSOM gives SARA back her cooked pickle.  She takes it and looks at it.)

(FLASHBACK POV showing us Valenti grabbing the drill and flicking the switch
turning it on.  We follow the path of the switch from the drill back to the
damaged plug where it shorts.  White flash as we follow the current tracking
back up the cord back up through the drill.  CGI shows us the inside of the
drill where the current hits the crossed wires.  It blows.  White flash to the
current passing through the drill handle flowing through the veins as Valenti's
blood conducts the electricity.  White flash back out from the nail in Valenti's
boot to the ground.  White flash as Valenti is electrocuted.  He and the drill
fall off of the twelfth floor.  White flash to present.)

WARRICK:  So, you've just proved murder.

that what you're telling me?

GRISSOM:  They were not on the nail.  You see, I think that someone stuck a nail
in the victim's boot and it evidently wasn't Bob Harris.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  In other words, you made a suspect out of an innocent
man.

GRISSOM:  Obviously, that wasn't my intent.

(THE SHERIFF walks away.  GRISSOM follows.)

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Oh, good.  Then maybe you'll want to bring that up in the

GRISSOM:  What are you talking about?  What newspaper article?

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  The one I'm arranging for your public apology.

GRISSOM:  I'm not making an apology.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Oh, yes, you are.  You don't go after a friend of mine,

BRASS:  Well, that was fast.

GRISSOM:  Ian Wolf, Union of Electrical Workers, Local 37.  He wanted to make
sure that I stayed on Harris for the murder of Roger Valenti.

BRASS:  Doesn't that tell you something?

GRISSOM:  I told him to talk to you.

BRASS:  I'll check out the guy.  Gil, why do you do this to yourself?

GRISSOM:  What?

BRASS:  The guy's dead.  It could have been suicide ... accident.  But you've

DAVID:  (to Catherine)  Hey, he asked for it.

CATHERINE:  How many swabs does it take to process a blanket?

NICK:  I'm thorough.

CATHERINE:  The lab tested Dylan Buckley's blood for Creatine Kinase which would
be elevated post-seizure ...

NICK:  ... but Dylan Buckley's levels were normal.  I just got my own copy of
the report.  Dr. Sapien lied.

(NICK walks out of the lab.  CATHERINE calls after him.)

CATHERINE:  You're racing me, Nick.  We're driving the same car.

CATHERINE:  Nick, I'll have you removed from the case. 

(NICK stops.  He turns around as CATHERINE approaches him.)

CATHERINE:  You're confronting suspects before the evidence is processed. 
You're flying solo, cutting me out.  What's going on?

IAN WOLF:  It's a work site.  Guys get in beefs all the time. 

BRASS:  But this guy died and Bob Harris had nothing to do with it.

CATHERINE:  Dylan Buckley's. Dr. Sapien's.

GREG:  You're two-thirds of the way there.  I also isolated a set of cells from
another individual.  Identity unknown.  But when it's important to Nick here, I
push further.  Seven of the 13 markers matched your dead kid.

CATHERINE:  Familial DNA.

MRS. BUCKLEY:  I loved my son.

NICK:  That's what every parent says.

MRS. BUCKLEY:  This ... this was therapy.  I had tried everything else.  Taken
him to so many specialists.  But I couldn't reach him.  So we ... we tried the
... (she looks at DR. SAPIEN)  I have to tell them.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  It's called Re-Birthing.

NICK:  Re-Birthing?

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  It's a technique used to treat extreme behavioral disorders. 
Idea is to turn back the clock.  Wipe the slate clean.  Allow the child to re-
bond with his mother.

CATHERINE:  What is the blanket for?

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  It represents the birth canal.

CATHERINE:  So you wrapped Dylan up ... beat the hell out of him and hocus-
pocus, he's supposed to love you again?

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Rebirthing may not be a recognized therapeutic procedure, but
it's not illegal.

SGT. O'RILEY:  Last time I checked, murder is.

MRS. BUCKLEY:  I begged her to do it.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  All other methods of therapy had failed.  Dylan was becoming
more belligerent, withdrawn, even dangerous.

MRS. BUCKLEY:  I just wanted my son to love me. That's all.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Dylan was a willing participant.

SGT. O'RILEY:  He was 14.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  I instructed Dylan to lie down on the floor.  In a fetal
position.  As part of the process ...

(Flashback during (v.o.):  DYLAN BUCKLEY in his boxers.  DR. SAPIEN and MRS.
BUCKLEY are in the living room also.  Flash to white.  DYLAN BUCKLEY on the tan-
colored blanket.  Flash to white to present.  Camera hold on CATHERINE.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  ... I asked him if he wanted to be reborn to his mother.  He
said yes.

(Flashback:  DR. SAPIEN and MRS. BUCKLEY gathering the edges of the blanket and
effectively wrapping the blanket around DYLAN.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Now we're going to close the womb.  And twist it.

(End of Flashback.  Resume Present.  Camera on NICK.)

NICK:  So, then what happened?  Things got out of hand?  He changed his mind?

(MRS. BUCKLEY covers her eyes as she begins to cry.)

CATHERINE:  Somewhere in the middle of an angora birth canal?

(Flashback:  DR. SAPIEN and MRS. BUCKLEY hold the blanket closed as DYLAN begins
to struggle inside.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  It's time to be reborn.  That's it, Dylan.  Push harder, push
harder!  Harder ...

DYLAN BUCKLEY:  Mom, stop it!  I can't breathe!

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Push hard.

DYLAN BUCKLEY:  Mom, please just stop!

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Do you want to be reborn or stay in there and die?

DYLAN BUCKLEY:  Quit pushing on me, please!  Mom, please, I want this to stop.

MRS. BUCKLEY:  ... maybe we should ...

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  No, this is what happens.  We can't stop now.  Trust me. This
is the normal response.

(End of Flashback.  Resume Present.  Camera on MRS. BUCKLEY.)

MRS. BUCKLEY:  I thought it was part of the process.  She told me that that's
what he was supposed to say.  That babies don't want to come out.

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  That's right. 

MRS. BUCKLEY:  That that's why it's such an ordeal for the woman.

CATHERINE:  So you pushed on him like a mother in labor?

(Flashback: DR. SAPIEN and MRS. BUCKLEY hold the blanket closed as DYLAN
continues to struggle inside.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Come on. Push harder.

DYLAN BUCKLEY:  No, mom, I can't breathe!

(DR. SAPIEN and MRS. BUCKLEY hold the blanket closed as DYLAN continues to
struggle inside.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  Push harder!  (DYLAN continues to fight against them.) 
That's it.

(DYLAN'S stops struggling.  DR. SAPIEN and MRS. BUCKLEY open the blanket. 
DYLAN'S not moving.)

MRS. BUCKLEY:  Dylan?  DYLAN?  HONEY?

(End of Flashback.  Resume Present.  Camera on MRS. BUCKLEY.)

DR. LEIGH SAPIEN:  When we opened the blanket, his eyes were closed.  I thought
he was pretending to be asleep.

NICK:  So much for your ... therapy.

(Both DR. SAPIEN and MRS. BUCKLEY look at NICK.  NICK stands and leaves the
room.)

NICK:  Excuse me.

MRS. BUCKLEY:  And that's why we tried to hide it.  We knew you wouldn't
understand.

(Camera holds on CATHERINE.)

CUT TO:



SCENE #34:

[INT. CSI LAB]

(WARRICK is processing IAN WOLF'S wire cutters.  GRISSOM and SARA watch.)

WARRICK:  Twin moons of Venus.

GRISSOM:  Overlap to one.

WARRICK:  Striations match.

SARA:  Wolf stuck a nail in Valenti's boot, compromised the drill and cut the
grounding prong with his own cutters.

WARRICK:  Seems like a lot of work to kill a guy.

GRISSOM:  Not for an electrician I'm going to find Brass.

(GRISSOM starts to leave the room.  WARRICK stops him.)

WARRICK:  Hey, Griss.  I think I can speak for both of us when I say I'm sorry
that we let you down.

SARA:  We quit before we should have.

GRISSOM:  Yeah, you did.

(GRISSOM leaves.  Camera holds on SARA and WARRICK.)

CUT TO:



SCENE #35:

[INT. CONSTRUCTION SITE -- NIGHT]

(Sounds of construction hammering and drilling.  BRASS, followed by GRISSOM and
a couple of officers find IAN WOLF at the construction site.)

BRASS:  Mr. Wolf.  We got you for murder.  Premeditated.

IAN WOLF:  You know this from my cutters?

GRISSOM:  They're just part of the story.

(Flash to white:  FLASHBACK POV showing us IAN WOLF opening ROGER VALENTI'S
locker, pulling out his right boot and sticking a nail on the bottom, pressing
it in with his thumb.)

GRISSOM:  (v.o.)  You spiked Roger's boot with the nail -- compromised the
insulation. 

(Flash to white.  Resume Present.  Camera on GRISSOM.)

GRISSOM:  You reversed the polarity in his drill. 

(Flash to white:  Flashback POV showing us IAN WOLF on the floor cutting the
drill's grounding prong with his wire cutters.  Flash to white.  A pair of wire
cutters slipping out of a plastic thermos being placed on the ground.)

GRISSOM:  (v.o.)  You cut the grounding prong, planted evidence.  And killed a
man.

(Flash to white.  Resume Present.  Camera on GRISSOM.)

(Flash to white.  Flashback shows us ROGER VALENTI picking up his drill, the
electricity coursing through his body, his hard hat falling off his head to the
ground below, getting electrocuted and falling off the 12th floor to the ground
below.)

(Flash to white.  Resume Present.  Camera on IAN WOLF.)

BRASS:  You're under arrest.

CUT TO:

(The officers handcuff IAN WOLF and escort him to their cars.  On their way out,
they run into THE SHERIFF.)

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Grissom.

BRASS:  (to GRISSOM)  It's all you, man.

(BRASS goes with IAN WOLF.  GRISSOM heads off to talk with THE SHERIFF.)

GRISSOM:  Sheriff.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  You got the bad apple.

GRISSOM:  Yeah, how about that?  Just in time for my big "public apology".

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  I may be changing the tenor of that piece somewhat.  You
won't be the goat but you won't be the hero, either.

GRISSOM:  Good, I leave that to you.

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  That's why we will continue to work well together.

(GRISSOM walks away without saying anything.)

SHERIFF BRIAN MOBLEY:  Grissom ...

FADE TO BLACK.
