"Morning sir", a police officer said while passing the head of the crime Lab, Lt Horatio Caine.
Horatio nodded his head in acknowledgement to the passing officer and kept his gaze firm on the people passing the MDPD building.
He was deep in his own thoughts. The one case he was working on were taking so much time and yet a new serial killer case broke out- which obviously took priority one.
There were already 4 murders committed in the Miami jurisdiction. The victims were chosen at random and the only thing the team found was that the victims had in common were blue eyes and they had a age range from around 20 to 40. Other than that they had no relation or link whatsoever.
Horatio walked up to the boardroom where the team were already gathered. He wanted to discuss the matter on the serial killer and what the evidence was pointing at.
"What have we got ?" he briskly asked.
"H, we've got nothing from the 2 abandoned motor vehicles. No DNA , hairs or anything" Eric said.
"Yeah Horatio , I processed the aluminium pipe which we initially thought was the murder weapon. But it's as clean as a whistle. " Calleigh replied.
"Well, Eric take Ryan with you and go through the cars again. Carefully. We have to get this guy."
"That's if it's a guy." Natalia said shyly.
"What do you mean?" Horatio asked.
"Well I've processed some of the electrical wires that we found at the second crime scene, I swabbed them for trace, but no trace came up. I found female DNA instead. And as far as I know, we had no female victims yet."
"So, either we've missed something or there's another victim out there." Horatio said annoyingly.
At that moment his phone rang. "This is Horatio."
It was Frank.
"Horatio we've got a situation. Another crime scene with electrical wires, a couple of needles and a victim."
"A Male victim?", Horatio asked.
"Nope. Female this time round."
" I'm on my way." Horatio said sternly.
Horatio put his phone in his pocket and rubbed his forehead.
"What's up H? Do we have another scene?" Eric asked.
Horatio sighed. "Yes Eric, it seems that way. You're coming with me and the rest of you, let's start getting something definitive in this case."
Horatio and Eric left in H's Hummer. Eric noticed that Horatio was agitated and maybe tired. So he said nothing during the short drive.
Shortly after, they arrived at the abandoned Warehouse where the crime scene was.
"Good day Horatio." Frank said cheerfully.
Horatio noticed Frank's cheerful mood and just nodded to him.
Frank decided not to be bothered by Horatio's agitation and took him inside to the victim.
"What have we got Alex?" Horatio asked in a deep voice.
" I'm afraid it's bad news, Horatio. Female, 25 years old and well, executed exactly the same as the other victims we've had in the last 2 weeks." Alex replied.
Horatio sighed and turned away, scanning the scene.
"Horatio, is everything alright?" Alex asked quietly, knowing that something was clearly bothering him.
He slowly looked up to her and said "Everything is fine."
"C'mon Horatio, how long have I know you to tell that that's not the truth?"
Horatio gave her a stern look. "Everything's fine." and then he turned to Eric.
"Eric please get the victim's DNA, and compare it to the results that Natalia found. See if you get a match." Eric nodded and Horatio returned to his hummer.
He slowly walked to the hummer, noticing something on the windscreen. As he came nearer, he saw that it was a piece of paper. He looked around for any activity before taking it off the car. Finally he took it, and it read: YOU'RE BEING WATCHED LT. CAINE.
Horatio felt a bit sick inside, but being the brave man he is, he sticked the note inside his jacket and drove off back to the lab.
While driving he was thinking about the three previous notes he received earlier in the week. After the second note Horatio thought that somebody wanted revenge- to scare him maybe. But after the third, things got serious. He received the third note yesterday morning in his hummer which was standing in front of his house. All four of these notes were starting to get personal and serious. Horatio told nobody about this, and it's been bothering him for a week now.
He arrived at the Crime Lab and sat in his car for a while, studying every person he could see entering and leaving the lab .
"Hey Horatio!" Calleigh said happily an tapped on the door.
"What's up? Why are you just sitting here?"
"Uh, I'm just...never mind".
"Are you okay?"
"Yeah, I'm fine" he replied with a faint smile.
"Ya know you can talk to me about anything right?" she said.
"I know, thanks" he said, as they both entered the lab and got in the elevator.
Horatio tried to hide his feelings the best way he could, although he knew Calleigh would find a way to get it out of him. He had such a weak spot for her. And at that moment Calleigh and Horatio looked up and stared into each other's eyes.
She touched his forearm,
"Look Handsome, anything, okay?"
Horatio nodded appreciatively.
The elevator doors opened and Calleigh left to the Ballistics lab and Horatio was left standing there.
