CSI: Crime Scene Investigation

Tuesday 17 February, 9:00pm on Five

The eleventh series of the forensic crime drama continues on Channel 5. In this episode, a student is killed by a life-sized animatronic T. rex. Elsewhere, the father of a missing teenager is murdered, but the investigation turns up new clues about his daughter’s whereabouts. At the scene of a suspected suicide, Nick recognises the dead man. Five years earlier, victim Phil Kohler’s 15-year-old daughter Whitney went missing along with her best friend, Rachel. The girls’ bodies were never found, but a man named Eli Holt was convicted of murder when Whitney’s blood was found in his van. Greg immediately suspects that the suicide was staged, and tests soon confirm that Kohler was shot by someone else. The CSIs interview Kohler’s soon-to-be-ex wife, Sharon, who claims that her husband was having an affair with Carly Beck – the mother of missing Rachel. “Who knew grief could push two people together?” she says, bitterly. “I’ve only seen it tear people apart.” Carly becomes the prime suspect when one of her hairs is found on Kohler’s body and the CSIs find her home empty. At the house, Nick finds that Rachel’s room has been left largely untouched since she disappeared. However, it is clear from spaces in the heavy dust that several items have recently been removed. On the floor, Nick finds a photo of a female skeleton in a shallow grave – wearing clothing identical to that worn by Whitney Kohler on the day she disappeared. As the case proceeds, the CSIs find Carly’s fingerprints on the photograph, and it transpires that she had been writing regularly to Eli Holt – but there is no evidence that he ever replied. They also learn that the murderer is in a coma after a suicide attempt ten days earlier. Meanwhile, an expensive gold watch that was missing from Phil Kohler’s wrist turns up after being pawned by a woman matching Carly’s description.

The eleventh series of the forensic crime drama continues on Five USA. When several dead bodies are found in the house of a compulsive hoarder, the CSIs must determine whether she or a member of her family might be a serial killer. Sara and Nick are sent to investigate when neighbours report a foul stench emanating from the house of a mentally unstable woman. The tenant, Marta Santiago, was recently ordered to leave her home after it was deemed that her compulsive hoarding posed a health risk. At the house, which is piled floor to ceiling with junk, Nick and Sara find no trace of Marta. But, when Nick steps in a gloopy substance that turns out to be a dead body, they fear that they have arrived too late to save her. However, Marta soon arrives home and identifies the body as that of one of her daughters, Diana. Dr Robbins determines that Diana was killed by a blow to the head. Martha’s psychiatric doctor, Priscilla Prescott, arrives to help question her patient about the murder. She maintains that Marta is not capable of killing, but admits that her disorder could have caused her to overlook the body as it lay in her house. Back at the crime scene, Greg stumbles across a skeleton, which has its wrists bound together with red ribbon. Dr Robbins and Langston identify it as belonging to a teenage boy, who was killed by massive arsenic poisoning. Just outside the building, two more skeletons are found, each with its hands bound in a similar fashion. The CSIs are able to identify the boys as teenage runaways who all went missing from the same halfway house – which was run by Marta’s son, Julian. After learning that his sister Alisa -who has not been seen for some time – became friendly with several of the boys, the investigators conclude that he killed them in a fit of jealousy.

The eleventh series of the forensic crime drama continues this week on Channel 5. This intriguing instalment stars twice Oscar-nominated actress Ann-Margret. When a well-respected philanthropist is savagely attacked in her bed, the CSIs search the house and discover that the attacker was watching the victim for some time – from within her home. It is night-time in a palatial mansion, and a dark figure is creeping through the garden. The figure uses a glass cutter to break in through the patio doors. Going upstairs, the interloper kneels over a recumbent woman in the master bedroom, then subjects her to a frenzied attack to the arms and chest with a straight razor. When the CSIs arrive at the crime scene, they discover that the victim, noted local philanthropist Margot Wilton, will survive the attack. “She’s got more buildings named after her than you can count,” Willows observes. As the team divides up the crime-scene duties, Captain Brass emerges shocked from the house. “It’s a real slash job – the bedroom’s a horror show,” he says. Langston and Willows notice on the upstairs landing that two photographs of a disabled child pictured with Wilton have been defaced, and that an awards plaque has been inexplicably turned around by the perpetrator. “They certainly weren’t in any rush,” Willows observes. The pair then discover a strange set of tracks in Wilton’s blood – alternating foot and hand prints in an unusual pattern. “That’s weird,” Langston says. “Is she lucky to be alive, or did she survive by design?” he adds. Downstairs, the investigators discover that one of the windows has been climbed through many times, presumably by the attacker. It is a mystery as to why the glass on the patio door had been cut. A search of the attic reveals that spy-holes have been drilled into the ceiling with cameras attached to them.

The eleventh series of the forensic crime drama continues this week on Channel 5. Max Beesley and American comic Andy Dick guest star in this horror-tinged tale. When a decapitated man is found entangled in barbed wire, the CSI team delves into the murky world of vampire and werewolf role-playing. The body of a decapitated man is found in a woodland area propped up on a barbed-wire fence. His head is stuck firmly on a fence post nearby. “You can see the terror in his eyes – he knew he was going to die,” Ray observes. The positioning of the body and the fact that it is a night of a blood moon suggest that the murder was part of a ritual killing. The CSIs take a closer look at the body in daylight and are startled to discover an exotic long-horned beetle has been placed in the victim’s mouth. They also find hair on the body and ligature marks on the corpse’s wrists. “It looks like someone brought chains to the party,” Ray announces. The marks on the body suggest the victim ran into the barbed wire fence and then was turned around to face his attacker. “The killer wanted to look him in the eye,” Nick says. In the lab, Sara finds symmetrical scars on both of the victim’s hands, consistent with Ray’s cult slaying theory. The torso has more than a dozen hack marks on it, but Sara is more interested in the fact that the victim has been waxed from head to toe. By analysing the wax, the team locates the source of it – the beauty parlour of the Mediterranean Hotel in downtown Vegas. Ray and Nick locate the victim’s hotel room and find signs of a struggle. Amongst the smashed debris they find a bright yellow contact lens, but also a suit and wedding vows. From a receipt they ascertain that the victim was the prospective groom and that the wedding was due to take place at that very moment in the hotel’s function room. As the pair burst into the room, they find themselves in a gothic chapel full of vampires.

The eleventh series of the forensic crime drama continues this week on Channel 5. When a cocktail waitress is killed by a shark at a Vegas pool party, the CSIs suspect that a bitter rivalry between two casino moguls might be to blame. Elsewhere this week, Hodges sinks into depression when Wendy announces that she is leaving the team. While a pool party is in full swing at the Golden Nugget casino, a shark appears in the midst of the revellers and rips the arm off waitress Desiree McQuire, killing her instantly. The venue keeps sharks in its aquarium, but it would apparently have been impossible for one of them to break free. As the CSIs team up with resident vet Dr Holloway to remove the culprit from the pool, casino owner Earnest Boozell bursts onto the scene. “I’ve got enough problems without people leaving my casino in body bags,” he snarls. As the CSIs try to solve the mystery of where the shark appeared from, Boozell informs them that all his animals are accounted for. “Maybe he checked in last night,” he offers, sarcastically. Meanwhile, Nick and Sara locate the only possible place where the shark could have been put in the water – and it is not covered by CCTV. At the scene, they find a cigar butt, which they link to Boozell’s promoter, Drops (played by special guest Method Man). Drops, an ex-con, outright denies the allegations, and tells the CSIs that he was only in the area to bring the DJ’s equipment through to the party. However, when Drops reveals that he used to work for Boozell’s rival, Danny Macklin, the CSIs realise that Macklin has gained enormously from the Golden Nugget being closed for the duration of the investigation. “Macklin’s got an aquarium, sharks – and a day club that would benefit from Boozell’s bad luck,” Brass declares.
