at wdbj7weather. thanks for watching your hometown news leader. have a great night. bell: holmes? holmes. thoughts? well, your working theory is obviously that this man was interrupted in the performance of his duties by the thief, who then brained the unfortunate mortician and made off with all of his clients' jewelry. so how, then, do we explain these bite marks? it's an oddly personal means of attack, is it not? especially for a transaction conducted solely in the name of the profit motive. yeah, we thought it was weird. maybe the robbery was just a cover? you said the owner found his body exactly like this, right? mmm. (knocking) excuse me, detective. leslie loughlin, from the 5-3 squad.

this is holmes, watson, our consultants. what brings you down from the bronx? the m.o. you got here. in the last couple of weeks, we've had two young women turn up dead with bite marks on their shoulders. looks a lot like a pair of killings we thought we closed back in '05, but... now i'm starting to think we got the wrong guy. excuse me, you said young women with bite marks on their shoulders? was this in pelham? yeah. anyway, i figured if my guy did this, maybe the nypd only needs one vampire hunter. this is not a murder. it's an accidental death. mr. robertson was standing on the table, and he fell off and hit his head. the robber broke in several hours later. (sniffing) this... scent. do you smell that? honestly, i've been trying not to breathe. well, if you did, you might detect the faintest trace of... (sniffing) ...marijuana laced with embalming fluid. when your toxicology report comes back, i'm quite certain it will confirm that our young mortician here was experimenting with "wet." the kick is something like, uh, pcp.
