  • Grissom opens the box, there was no GSR, and it was a little, well, Sporky.

    Grissom opens the box that has been sitting on his desk for the past for weeks and finds a miniature of a murder that hasn't happened yet! Nick and Warrick find the apartment where the supposed victim lives. When they arrive she seems very out of it, drugged or something. They send an officer to pose as the "victim" and hope that the killer shows up. After waiting all day and not finding anyone suspicious,except the victims brother who is cleared, they give up. Sophia Curtis goes into the room to get the officer and call it a day but, there's a catch, she's dead! And the woman's cat is also dead. At autopsy they discover that she and the cat were both poisoned with carbon monoxide. The killer had a device, which at the appropriate time, would block the chimney causing the room to fill with carbon monoxide. After the room is cleared the woman demands that she be let back into her home. So they allow her back in and she is found dead the next day. They find evidence linking the brother to her murder, he was trying to frame the miniature killer, who is still on the loose!
