At 3 am the supervisor to the CSI team in D.C., Mr. Kyle Reese, was first to arrive into the conference hall of the Tamas hotel where the law enforcement convention had been held. In the middle of the hall lay the dead body of Miles Dyson, a forensic computer engineer, with a single gunshot wound to the back. Since most of the attendees had training in some field of forensics many had gotten to work on processing the crime scene. As Reese walked about the crime scene filled with unfamiliar faces conducting familiar tasks a rookie came running into the hall “the perpetrator of the crime is still here in the conference hall!” he proclaimed. “Witnesses say nobody has left the hall since the shots were fired” continued the rookie “we’ve checked and there are only two entrances and exits to the lobby and the one in the back is alarmed and has not been set off.” A stunned silence fell over the conference room, now filled with onlookers and forensic experts alike, as people realized there was a murderer among them. “The killer must have been hiding out in here until enough people arrived to blend into the commotion” observed Reese “it is only the killer’s good luck that most of us are strangers to each other.” Reese went about questioning some of the people in the hall, first was a Dr. Peter Silberman “I am a medical examiner and came to try to assess the cause of death, the manner of death is obviously homicide” said the doctor.
”I am a fingerprint technician and I thought dusting for prints would be important so no prints got wiped away, I see an arch pattern on the shell casing, which is rare, the rest has to be looked at in the lab” said the young woman, the next to be questioned, named Kate Brewster “I am just trying to help.”
The next person to be questioned was Sarah Connor “I am a blood splatter expert, I came to find out what happened here and where the victim was when he was shot. The splatter marks indicate that the victim was standing up facing away from his attacker when he was shot.”
Reese moved on to a man who identified himself as John Connor “I am a questioned document examiner, I have been going around with my UV alternate light source ensuring all the IDs people in here have are genuine so we can identify everyone properly” stated John Connor.
“This is going to take forever” remarked the rookie “there are dozens of people in here to question.” “Actually, I have a pretty good idea of who here is not who they claim to be” said Reese, and although I was going to let them squirm a little longer it is time to take someone in for questioning.
Who is Kyle Reese ready to take in and why?
