CSI: Miami

Tuesday 16 November, 9:00pm on Five

The Miami-based forensics drama continues. In this episode, the CSIs are called to investigate the deaths of three students whose bodies were recovered in and around the same hotel during the spring-break party season. As they investigate each case, Horatio and the team realise that all three murders may have been carried out by another student seeking revenge for a humiliating assault. As the spring-break parties hit full swing in Miami, Horatio and the CSIs are called in when the bodies of three young revellers are found. The locations and causes of death differ with each victim, but the team suspects there may be a connection between the trio. The team splits into pairs to tackle each case. Horatio and Walter investigate the death of a man who has fallen from a hotel and become impaled by a sculpture on the ground below. Calleigh and Tripp are assigned the body of a young woman found in a giant washing machine at an industrial laundry used by the same hotel. And Ryan and Jesse are presented with a dead young man buried up to his neck at a nearby beach. Ryan and Jesse’s victim appears to have been drowned by the incoming tide, unable to free himself from the sand. Ryan is convinced that the man’s death was merely the result of a drunken prank gone awry, but Jesse reminds his colleague that accident or not, the culprits need to be found. It soon becomes clear to Calleigh and Tripp that the young woman was dumped in the washing machine postmortem. The machine’s filter yields several potential clues for the pair to follow up, leading them back to the hotel. As the impaled body is removed and taken back to the lab for examination, an intriguing detail is discovered. A burn is found on the young man with chemical residue that indicates he was shot by a flare gun prior to death.

Horatio Caine and his crack team of investigators tackle another Miami murder case. In this episode, a close friend of Horatio’s son becomes a suspect in a murder enquiry when his girlfriend’s overbearing father is found dead. Horatio’s son Kyle returns from Iraq with his army unit, but before long his buddy Brian disappears. Horatio drives an anxious Kyle to Brian’s workshop, where they find a burning body. The pair are unable to save the victim, who is burned beyond all recognition, but they assume the dead man is Brian. Tom points out that the killing has all the hallmarks of a gangland execution. “His body is encased in rubber,” he tells Horatio, grimly. “I’ll save as much as I can for you.” Kyle becomes convinced that Brian’s oddball neighbour, Vietnam vet Glenn Harper, is behind the murder. “He’s been in our face ever since we got back,” he explains. “He told Brian to watch his back because he’s Muslim.” Harper tells Horatio of his belief that Brian and his friends were Islamic extremists. “If homeland security can’t keep track of it, it’s up to us to be vigilant,” he insists. However, the investigation is turned on its head when Tom discovers that the body is not Brian’s, but that of a man named Rahim Farooq. The fingerprints on the gas canister used to light the fire belong to Rahim’s wife, Salumeh, but she explains this away by telling the CSIs that she recently removed it from her husband’s car. Meanwhile, Kyle makes contact with Brian, who agrees to meet him in secret. However, Kyle brings Horatio along, and the lieutenant recognises Brian’s girlfriend as Rahim’s daughter, Maya. The young lovers immediately become suspects when it transpires that they were planning to leave town together. The CSIs find petrol on both Maya and Brian’s clothing, but Maya claims her father doused her in it and tried to kill her when he found out about her secret relationship with Brian. “The gasoline was meant for me,” she insists. “My father had a violent temper.”

Horatio Caine and his crack team of investigators tackle another Miami murder case. When an unpopular ad agency receptionist is murdered in the office, a number of her colleagues become suspects. However, the killing proves to be intrinsically linked with a tragic incident from the woman’s past. When the lift malfunctions at the offices of an advertising agency, an employee discovers the body of a colleague in the lift shaft. The body is that of receptionist Renee Dorsett, and it appears that she was killed with a blow from the fire axe, which is still embedded in her skull. The CSIs conclude that Renee was murdered while a fire alarm was deliberately set off earlier in the day, so they set about trying to work out which employee sounded the alarm. Calleigh discovers that the alarm system contained an invisible dye that would have covered whoever sounded it, meaning that the culprit should be relatively easy to hunt down. “That sounds like a perfect recipe for a court order to test these employees,” Jesse declares. Office assistant Valerie Metcalf is quickly identified as the culprit, but she insists she sounded the alarm because she needed an extra long lunch break in order to collect her boyfriend from the airport. However, she makes it clear that there was no love lost between her and Renee. “She’s the office Nazi,” Valerie declares, disclosing how the receptionist persistently irritated other employees by spying on them and reporting their shortcomings to managers. As Jesse and Horatio search Renee’s desk for further evidence, they are startled by the sound of running above them – despite the fact that they are on the top floor of the building. Further investigation reveals that lowly office messenger Teddy Enwald is hiding in the cramped crawl space. “You were living in the ceiling?” Horatio asks incredulously. “Do you have any idea how much these cubicle monkeys waste in rent?” is his surly response.

The Miami-based forensics drama continues. This week, a wealthy porn baron is linked to the rape of one woman and the murder of another, but Jesse’s determination to bring the accused to justice jeopardises the case. It emerges that the young CSI investigated the pornographer in LA for murdering his wife, but an anomaly with the evidence saw the case thrown out of court and Jesse accused of misconduct. In order to make the charges stick this time, Horatio must first go to LA to clear Jesse’s name. Horatio and the team are called to a swanky Miami house following the murder of a young woman and the drugging and rape of another at a party the previous night. Horatio immediately recognises the homeowner as Tony Enright (Paul Blackthorne, ’24’, ‘Holby City’), a pornographer who was accused of murdering his wife in California. “I know who you are and I know what you did in LA,” says Horatio. But Enright coolly denies any involvement in this latest crime and reminds the detective that he was acquitted of his wife’s murder. While searching the murder scene, Calleigh and Walter find a bug concealed in the room. “Someone was listening in on the murder,” says Walter. “That’s sick!” But analysis of the device shows that it was planted a week ago by none other than CSI Jesse Cardoza. It emerges that Jesse was working for the LAPD when Enright was accused of murdering his wife. The cops managed to put together a strong case, but it was thrown out of court and Jesse’s reputation was ruined when a crucial piece of evidence went missing. Since that time, Jesse has been desperate to bring Enright down. “This guy’s a murderer – I wanted something to put him away,” says Jesse. “If you’re right, I’ll help you,” replies Calleigh. “But you’d better be right.”

However, the state attorney rules that the evidence is inadmissible owing to Jesse’s reputation for corruption. “Then I have no choice but to clear his name,” says Horatio

Horatio Caine and his crack team of investigators tackle another murder case. When a body falls from the sky over Miami, the CSIs discover that the deceased was killed during a commercial space flight. What could have driven his fellow passengers to commit murder? A couple sitting in a parked car receive a shock when the body of a man falls onto their sunroof, apparently from the tree above. Back at the lab, Tom struggles to identify the victim or determine a cause of death, but one thing is certain – the man fell from a height of at least 2,000 feet. Calleigh suggests that the dead man fell from a plane, but flight records show only one helicopter in the airspace at the time. The pilot denies being out in his helicopter that day, and he is exonerated when Tom reaches an astonishing conclusion about the victim’s identity. “This man was in space less than 24 hours ago,” he declares. “We’re looking at an astronaut.” When the CSIs learn that all NASA’s astronauts are accounted for, they turn to a local space tourism company. Owner Keith Palmer identifies the victim as Sam Gardner, a passenger on a ten-day flight that touched down in Miami the previous evening. The investigators obtain video footage of the trip sent by Sam to his wife, and are shocked to find that one of his co-travellers is the helicopter pilot, Beau Lendell. “He claims he didn’t even know our victim,” Calleigh says suspiciously. “Yet he just spent ten days in space with him.” As the CSIs question Beau, Palmer and the third passenger, action movie star Dominic Cross, Tom reveals the cause of Sam’s death. “The blood boiled out of the victim’s lungs,” he tells Horatio gravely. The ME goes on to explain how Sam’s internal organs exploded one by one. The only probable cause is exposure to the atmosphere outside the spacecraft without a spacesuit.

Horatio Caine and his crack team of investigators tackle another Miami murder case. In this episode, new evidence emerges casting doubt on the conviction of a man who has been on death row for 15 years. The governor grants the convict a brief stay of execution, giving the CSIs just 24 hours to re-examine the original murder case and prevent the killing of a potentially innocent man. Death row inmate James Bradstone is given his final meal and last rites as he awaits his execution for the brutal murder of his wife and daughter 15 years earlier. Before the execution takes place, however, DA Evan Talbot receives word from the governor. A TV interview with the star witness from the original case casts ambiguity on the woman’s statement, leading to a protest from the defence. To allow time for an investigation into the situation, the governor grants a 24-hour stay of execution. It transpires that the witness, Louise Russo, originally claimed to have seen the murder in the Bradstones’ bedroom from her own kitchen. Having noticed that this viewpoint was obscured by a tree, the then prosecutor Talbot convinced Russo that she saw the murder from her living room – and persuaded a young Officer Jesse Cardoza to accept her altered statement. The only other witness is Bradstone’s son Todd, aged just seven at the time. He did not see the killer and was left for dead himself. Bradstone has maintained his innocence since his conviction, despite his prints being on the murder weapon. The former doctor had a history of dealing in stolen pain killers, and hypothesises that after he stopped supplying the drugs, a jilted buyer broke into his house and took deadly revenge.
