Episode Seven

Joe is under scrutiny. His blind devotion to the Brand makes him suspect. Everyone's exhausted, including the cops. The Brand has finally been taken away. Only his silhouette remains, in white chalk, on the carpet. The book is still lying on the floor, next to the outline of his hand. The boardroom table is festooned with knapsack, pocket and purse contents.

The Boardroom, Hour Four.

Murphy: So let's go through this one more time.

Barney: Must we? I'm thinking we should just haul the whole lot of them in and let them sit in stir a few days. Maybe feed them their own coffee, cookies and cigarettes. That should do it.

Murphy: Barney, c'mon. Don't be that way. Remember your blood pressure.

Barney: Alright, let's get through this. You, you and you <indicating Jeff, Joe, and Mike> loved the Brand and would never hurt him. You, you and you <pointing to Levi, Kathy, and Daniel> hated him. Motive exists for all of you. Mike, Joe and Daniel left the room at some point. Each of you has some sort of piece of circumstantial evidence to their credit. We've got a real mess on our hands. Murph, I think we should just draw names and do this on a lottery system. The place is crawling with everyone's prints. We really don't have much to go on unless the killer, who I'll assume is sitting in this room, is getting nervous that we know more than we're letting on and we're just toying with them.

Murphy: <under his breath> Don't we wish.

Barney: Let's go back to the evidence table. It seems all of you are orally fixated, so I can't say I'm surprised poison was the method. Kathy, you have a dizzying array of tupperware in your purse. Jeff seems to hoard cookies. Daniel smokes clove cigarettes. Mike is addicted to Red Bull. Levi's girlfriend bakes. That leaves Joe again as the anomaly. Joe, are you sure you aren't hiding food somewhere?

Joe: Nothing. I'm clean.

Barney: Of course you are. We've got enough on you already. Murph, this will all have to be submitted to the lab. This is everyone's last chance to save us a lot of legwork. With poison, we're looking at premeditated murder, but it will go easier for you if you fess up now.

Murphy: Anyone?

<The room is silent, but for the cooing of pigeons outside the boardroom windows.>

Barney: Fine, if that's how it's going to be. Let's get ready to head downtown.

Maybe the brand committed suicide? Hmm, perhaps not. I still reckon Joe did it!

I still think Jeff did it. For the creator of the Brand, he's just too quiet.

Besides, Jeff is a perfectionist (according to the bio). So he would be upset if the Brand wasn't absolutely perfect.

I personaly don't care what they call it because it works. It works so well I don't want my competition to use it. The End.

Can't be Jeff, Levi or Joe. They all look like a bunch of metrosexuals (not that there's anything wrong with that). Section 15(a) of The CSI Handbook states "...jumpers don't take off their glasses when leaping out the window of tall buildings..." and Section 15(b) states "...metrosexuals only kill other metrosexuals that are better looking than them..." From the description given, The Brand was just alright looking. The three amigas had no need to knock him off.

I still think Kathy is the culprit. Just a gut feeling.
