(buoy bell ringing) boa vista: we still don't know what derek was hit with. we didn't find any weapon at the scene. maybe derek here can help us out with that. boa vista: damn, those are some nice abs. this guy must have lived at the gym. where did he find time to squeeze in all the women? always time to squeeze in women. especially if they're paying. (scoffs) a lot of coagulated blood. probably suffered an intracranial hemorrhage. my guess is he would have bled out if the propane hadn't gotten to him first. got a little something in this wound. would you do me a favor and hand me the magnifying glass and tweezers, please?
gracias. mm-hmm. yeah. are those dandruff flakes? maybe from our gigolo joe. his dandruff could have fallen onto the vic when he attacked him. care to take it to trace? thank you. the flakes are pvc plastic. but i can't think of anything made of pvc heavy enough to fracture a skull. what if it were part of a weapon? hmm? this may help. the flakes are coated with water and glycerin. why would that be on the outside of a weapon?
it's not what's on the outside. it's what's on the inside. hmm. i'm totally lost. okay. when i was a little, my dad used to take me to the derby. i loved horses. and i would always beg him to buy me a horse. so my dad bought me a snow globe with a stallion on the inside. so, you're saying that the flakes we found on the body is actually snow from inside a snow globe? exactly. it's the water-glycerin mixture that makes the snow float. what if these leaked out when derek was hit on the head? what kind of guy brings a snow globe to attack someone? could be a woman. you know, joe did say that a lot of women give gifts to the gigolos. maybe one of the women bought it as a gift but ended up using it as a weapon. ♪
got paris here. vacation. perfect place to pick up a souvenir. right? "la tour d'argent, musee d'orsay, louvre, claudine cadeaux, bon marche. wait-wait-wait. go back. was that claudine cadeaux? it's "claudine's gifts." "maison du chocolat... uh... a boule de neige." "snow globe." that's the snow globe! whose statement is that? boa vista: it's gretchen, our housewife. ah! (sirens wailing) (indistinct radio transmission) i told you it's not here. i gave the snow globe to derek. he kept it in the cabana. anyone could have hit him with it. well, if that's the case, ms. cambridge,
this hammer's got some white flakes on it. i'll bet you this was used to smash the snow globe. where's the trash? mrs. cambridge? do you recognize that? it's a piece of a snow globe. and can you tell me how it got that way? gretchen: i... uh... i, uh... i hit derek on the back of the head with it. you hit him on the back of the head? that's... that's strange, because derek was actually hit on the front of the head. mrs. cambridge, you are clearly covering for someone. gretchen: no, no, listen, you have to believe me. i'm telling you the truth. it's me. it's me. enough! enough.
all right? no more lies. i suspected you were cheating on me, so i waited until you left the house, and i followed you. it couldn't have been you... you weren't... i came back from my business trip a day early. gretchen: that was amazing. derek: good night. caine: and that's when you confronted derek. i thought i could convince him to stop seeing her. just leave my wife alone. well, maybe if you paid better attention to her, she'd stop coming back to me. where did you get this? gretchen gave it to me.
steven: i never did. i'm so sorry. i'm so sorry. don't. mr. cambridge, one more question. did you break the valve on the fireplace before or after the attack on derek? i don't know what you're talking about. i didn't go anywhere near the fireplace. take him. i believe him. so do i. well, if he didn't cause the gas leak, that leaves one question. who did?
borrowed technology from ferrari to develop its suspension system? or what if we told you that ferrari borrowed technology from cadillac to develop its suspension system? magnetic ride control -- pioneered by cadillac, perfected in the 556-horsepower cts-v. we don't just make luxury cars. we make cadillacs.
(elevator bell dings) delko: h... i got something on the propane leak. based on the flow rate and the size of the cabana, it would've taken about two hours for the propane to become deadly. yeah, but there was no guarantee that derek would stay in there the entire time. okay... maybe the killer didn't plan to suffocate him. well, that's true, because i think they were counting on him to light the fireplace, to cause an explosion. that's a good plan in theory, except the victim
would have smelled the gas and decided to leave. unless the killer knew he wouldn't. well, hector romero wouldn't have had a motive, then. 'cause he was making a lot of money off derek. he certainly was, which means somebody else knew about the propane. (sirens wailing) hang on a second, folks. we posted bail. they said i could leave. why do you want to talk to my dad again? i don't want to talk to your dad. i want to talk to you. you run the day-to-day operations at the hotel. yes, so? so, you would know that the propane was odorless. let me see your shoes, please.
they're clean. they may be, but the foot isn't, is it? you just weren't wearing these shoes last night. you had open-toe shoes on? how do you know that? because you have frostbite. boa vista: it's from exposure to propane. from when you kicked the valve on the fireplace. (grunts) (gas hissing) want to tell us what happened? derek and i were seeing each other. what?! you were with that gigolo? i knew what he was, and i thought i could handle it. but then i kept seeing... those checks. here, babe. this should cover the rest of this week's rent. hmm.
busy week. oh, i'm sorry. sorry enough to quit? we've been through this. i know. but um... i'm falling in love with you. me, too. i'm gonna hit the showers. (groans) luisa: i knew the next girl he brought in here, he'd light the fireplace and they'd both die. (grunting) caine: i hope you're satisfied.

last month. >> yes, that's the good news. and the 3-1 start is something that we would have liked to have been taking. the bad news is over the last three weeks the redskins offense has been averaging just over 18 points per game. while they did win this afternoon, it may have been against the worst team in football and certainly it was not convincing. not a great day for them at quarterback, though we did have a couple of moments, this is one of the big one, second possession, santana moss gets both out there, jumping out to an early 7-0 lead. a huge game for this man right here, who had been glued to the bench weeks one through three. he wasn't today. 135 yards on 19 carries including 20 on that touchdown. redskins lead 17-0 in the third, but the rams got within 7. they had a chance to draw even after the pick to james. the skins defense responded with only 7 sacks in the game. 17-10 final skins, 3-1.
>> you know, you need to hold them, to get the ball in great field position, and you know, to come out of the end zone, to make some plays like we have. and that really says a lot about everyone. when you get a victory, you know, you need to appreciate the way that you get those 17 points. and so yeah, no doubt that we could improve and move over there. >> by the end of the day, we need to win. we know that we'll look out there and be hard on ourselves. we need to play better. we want to. we will enjoy this. they are happy about the win tonight, and not necessarily on how close it was against a very bad team and not thrilled with what he has been on in the last couple of weeks. much more when they join us on sports plus right after this newscast. it sounds like we will be talking about the quarterback change anyway. >> yes. >> all right, thank you. turning elsewhere, an outpouring of support for the victims of the devastating flood last month. he tells us tonight that most
