Did You Know?


The "dead woman in the water tower" scenario is based on an actual event and has been used for the basis of the horror movie Dark Water. In real life the woman rotted in the tower for over a week while the residents showered, cooked and drank from it. Foul play was not suspected. See more »


At the episode open, tenants would not have noticed blood coming out of their water taps. Human beings have about 10 pints, or 1.25 gallons of blood in their bodies. The body in the tank is pictured as still bleeding out so the amount of blood in the tank would be less than that, while the tank is at least 18 feet tall by 10 feet wide, holding more than 9000 gallons. Diluting the blood to that extent would make it undetectable until decomposition affected the odor and taste. See more »

Det. Lindsay Monroe: I'm not going to give you anything if you don't get going. Make tracks, cowboy.

Who Dumped The Body In The Water Tower?
18 November 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Blood comes spurting out of a shower head in one apartment and a sink in the other. A woman lies dead in a water tower above that apartment building. How could such deep wrist injuries but leave almost no blood splatter? That's just one of the many questions Mac, Lyndsay and Don have to figure out in solving this mystery. The superintendent and a drug-addicted doctor are the key suspects.

The solution is a pretty clever one and perhaps not one that many people would figure out.

In case number two, Stella and Sheldon are called to Washington Heights where a guy has been tied to a pole and beaten to death. Back in the lab, Danny joins the other two in trying to find out who the killer is in this one.

It all boils down to competition in the fashion world which leads to a murder.
