While waiting for Dr. Gray, Katherine took a seat on one of the examination tables, mulling over the two evidence bags in her hands.

The knife fragment wasn't the most exciting thing in the world, but she supposed it was better than nothing. There was a time and place that it would become more necessary - especially if they ever found the murder weapon. Even so, it was possible that they could test to see if there were any specifics about the blade's makeup that could give them some direction to follow. A manufacture's list of clientele could add some names to their suspect list.

It was the fibers that made her more excited, however. It looked to be a higher end, sturdier thread, so it was likely that it came from some sort of suit or dress shirt. Even if no DNA could be pulled from it, the color of the fibers could be cross-listed with the dyes used in local stores, providing them with another way of expanding their suspects.

Jett pushed through the doors so suddenly that Katherine flinched. She looked up at him, for even as she sat on the table he was much taller than her, and gave him a once over. "You're looking a little rough," she said instead of answering his question. "Got excited when Dr. Gray gave you the news, huh?"

She reached out and grasped his tie, pulling him closer to her so she could fix it for him. "The tip of the murder weapon broke off in the wound - probably connected with a bone - and was buried in the tissue, so that's one thing," she finally explained. "The other more exciting news is that they found some fibers near the puncture wound that didn't belong to the victim's attire." Once she finished straightening his tie, Katherine waved the two evidence bags at him so he could see, but then placed them the inner pocket of her blazer.

"I'm going to take them to forensics in a little bit," she added, "but first, I heard back from the victim's bank. Apparently she'd been depositing large sums of money every month. Sounds like she could've been blackmailing someone."
