"I'm not so sure about finding the killer simply from a few threads," Katherine replied, raising an eyebrow. "They're likely been contaminated somewhat, considering it was by a dumpster. If there isn't any DNA on them, though, we can try to backtrack and look for the manufacturer."

He seemed off, but she couldn't figure out why.

"We'll have to go through her personal effects to figure out if blackmail really is the truth," she said with a sigh, "but I wouldn't be surprised by it. It's always the same amount, same day, every month. If we can find someone connected to the blackmail scheme we may be one step closer."

Katherine's ears peaked interest at the mention of possible suspects. "I'll be meeting more of the team today," she answered quietly, "so I'll be able to get some reads on people then. I'm most interested in the forensics unit, since they handle most of the evidence, so it's convenient that I have a reason to be there."

"My, my, you two seem to have hit it off." Dr. Gray, who had just returned from his phone call, eyed the two of them, but his attention was mostly on Katherine.

"You're funny," she retorted while gently pushing Jett out of her way so she could slip from the table. "By the way, Dr. Gray, did you find any evidence that the victim was sexually active before her death?"

A sly smile curled his lips. "Hm I wonder if I should tell you, Kitty."

"Please don't test my patience, Dr. Gray." Her dark eyes bore into him, unblinking, but the tips of her ears flushed red.

"Yes, yes," he sighed, looking amused. "It seems likely that she was, but there wasn't any material to collect. Now excuse me, I actually have to be getting to a meeting." Dr. Gray glanced briefly at Jett, waving his hand between the man and the lieutenant with a quizzical expression on his face. Are you together? he seemed to be asking. After pausing to see if he'd get a response, he gathered his belongings and left the room.

Katherine returned her attention to Jett upon Dr. Gray's exit. After leaning upon the nearest wall, arms crossed, she said: "We may want to speak to the victim's husband - Richard Price - and see what he was up to yesterday. If he wasn't with her, we could have another motive on our hands."
