Bekowsky: Let's go introduce ourselves. You talk to her, Phelps. I'm no good at this shoulder-to-cry-on stuff.
Mrs. Black: Just a minute.
Phelps: LAPD, Mrs. Black, may we come in? We have some bad news, and we would rather discuss this in private.
Mrs. Black: I'm Margaret Black. We can discuss this in the living room. Please come in.
Phelps: Your husband drives a blue Lincoln, Mrs. Black?
Mrs. Black: That is correct.
Phelps: The car has been found abandoned, and I am afraid there are signs of foul play.
Mrs. Black: I knew something was wrong when he didn't come home.
Phelps: We believe your husband may be injured. We found a pipe on the scene with blood on it.
Mrs. Black: Oh, no! My poor Adrian!
Phelps: Does the name InstaHeat mean anything to you, ma'am?
Mrs. Black: Yes, it does. We just had a new water heater installed.
Phelps: Whereabouts, Mrs. Black?
Mrs. Black: Just outside the kitchen window, at the side of the house.
Phelps: I would like you to try and stay calm, and remember everything that happened last night. My partner and I are going to take a look around. When you're ready, we are going to have some more questions for you. Is that okay?
Mrs. Black: Of course, Officer. Anything to help secure my husband's safety.
Bekowsky: Let's check the place out. Come on.
Phelps: Cavanagh's. So who brought this home? Maybe Adrian was a patron. R&I should have the address.
Bekowsky: Have a good look around. There's got to be something in here to go on.
Phelps: Operator, message for KGPL.
Operator: Putting you through now.
Phelps: Colt Phelps, Badge 1247.
Woman: How can I help, Detective?
Phelps: I need a address on a Cavanagh's Bar.
Woman: Certainly, Detective, one moment. Cavanagh's Bar, corner of Alizo and Hewitt. South side of Union Station.
This must be Adrian's.
Stenzel. So the glasses are a match.
To my Adrian. This thing gets more and more interesting.
A used ticket to Seattle and a suitcase gone missing. Someone couldn't wait to get out of this house.
This was only recently installed, not two days ago.
Bekowsky: Maybe its time we take a look around outside.
Phelps: No use leaving the thing half finished.
That can't be right.
No, that won't work.
That looks wrong.
It doesn't go there.
No use leaving the thing half finished.
So the pipe missing from Mr. Black's here is the same one that killed him. Seems like the assailant is a little closer to home.
Separate bedrooms, separate pictures. What gives here?
I wonder if someone in the house bought this unit, knowing how they would use the parts.
Mrs. Black: I'm all right now, detectives.
