Blood on the TracksAired on May 15, 2008
Detectives Tim Entenok and Joselito Sandoval are called to a crime scene at Brookside Park at 11:00 am, where a missing person is found dead in a 4-foot-diameter sewage drain, in a remote section of the park. The body is found 300 feet deep in the pipe, which has been draining a constant flow of rainwater. When Entenok takes a closer look at the body, he notices that it is maggot-infested: an indication that the body has been in the pipe for over a week. The victim's head, surrounded by a dried pool of blood, seems to have bullet holes, but the maggots preclude an accurate visual assessment. Only an autopsy will determine the cause of death. Meanwhile Sandoval scours the nearby train tracks for additional evidence. A few rocks, stained with a blood-like substance, are collected. The investigation seems to go cold with no leads until a female witness gives them a much-needed break in the case.

Gilpin Court ShootingAired on Jun 12, 2008
Detective Jaime Baynes is called to the scene of a possible homicide. After interviewing a few witnesses, Baynes learns the victim ran 100 yards, coughing up blood along the way. He banged on a couple of doors crying for help, before falling on his back and dying in the grass. In his death grip is a folded-up dollar bill with methamphetamine inside. The medical examiner finds a bullet from a small caliber 25 mm gun had ricocheted around in his body, causing internal bleeding. At the crime scene, where detectives believe the shooting occurred, no shell casings are found. With no suspects or leads, the forensic team tests the methamphetamine for a unique chemical formula, which may lead them to the neighborhood that produced the drugs. Hopefully the drugs' formula and the signature way the drugs were wrapped in the dollar bill, can lead detectives to the source and a possible suspect.
