The latest victim of the string of assassin hits was forty-five year old Emily Price, the upperclass trophy wife of the great Richard Price, owner of Price Textiles. She was found in the alley behind her recently opened boutique, her lips still red and her dress still immaculate - almost. The blood from the stab wound had thoroughly soaked her little black dress, leaving it hard and crusty by the time forensics got out to her.

A passing squad car patrolling the area had noticed her feet, still decorated with large nude pumps, visible from behind a dumpster. Forensics arrived soon after to help secure and manage the scene. Katherine DeLise arrived on the scene before the rest of her new team, having been sent directly from the main branch as soon as the call came in. She pulled her Jeep partially up onto the sidewalk, turned and pulled the key from the ignition, and stepped from the vehicle.

The cop first on the scene approached her, a frown upon his lips. "Ma'am, this is a crime scene," he warned. "Please return to your vehicle."

"My apologies," Katherine said with a smooth smile. She drew her new badge from the pocket of her blazer and flashed it his way. "I'm Lieutenant Katherine DeLise. I'm under the command of Jett Ryder."

He made to apologize, but she pressed past him, knowing full well that his apology would not spare him from his awkwardness. He hurried after her and held up the tape for her to pass under, which she did with a thanks. Katherine's dark heels clicked upon the worn out concrete, alerting the forensic team of her presence. She made her way to stand in front of the victim's body, peering down at the woman with a sigh. After collecting a pair of navy latex gloves from her pocket - extra small, stocked for her hands only - and crouched down to get her chance to examine her before the medical team arrived to take her away.
