Episode Summary

EDIT
The detectives are on the scene of a dump job, as always Medavoy wants to talk about the trial, whose outcome is as yet unknown, because it is only 8:00 AM. While Medavoy and Jones examine the body, Sipowicz and Clark talk to the swimmer (in a Speedo) who found the body. Sipowicz tries to get the swimmer covered up, but cries "Uncle" when the swimmer bends over. Back at the squad another dump job comes in, while the detectives run their case by Rodriguez. Though he tries to hide it, Rodriguez is distracted by fact that the jury is still out. McDowell and Ortiz get to the scene of the other dump job, meanwhile the male detectives go to the first victim's apartment and find themselves distracted by their victim's neighbor, who is wearing thong underwear during their interview. In the midst of all that distraction, she tells them they should look for the victim's son, Michael Woodruff, which Sipowicz send Medavoy and Jones off to do. McDowell and Ortiz interview their victim's husband, Dan Burleigh, as Jones and Medavoy find the son of the first victim. Back at the squad the phone rings and Rodriguez leaves for the courthouse, the verdict is in. Jones and Medavoy talk to Michael Woodruff about his mother. He tells them about Desmond Carter, a man that his mother was seeing. Sipowicz and Clark go to garage where Carter works and after they deal with watch dog, Carter mentions getting into a fight with their victim's ex-husband. McDowell and Ortiz go to a strip club to talk to a woman who their victim had recently called and they find out that their victim did porn films in the 1980s. Sipowicz and Clark bring Carter in and find out more about their victim's husband while Jones and Medavoy watch the interview. Jones and Medavoy go back to talk to Michael to find out about his father. He gives them a place where they might be able to find him. At the courthouse, the verdict is revealed. Fraker is "not guilty" on both counts. Sipowicz and Clark go and retrieve Craig Woodruff. McDowell gets confirmation that Dan Burleigh's alibi didn't check out and they tell him what they know about his dead wife's colorful career as "Stella Star". He changes his alibi. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Woodruff about his relationship with his ex-wife. They start to try to use his son against him, but it isn't working. McDowell finds out Burleigh's revised alibi does check out. Medavoy comes up with another suspect for them, a man who is anxiously trying to collect all the memorabilia for "Stella Star". Rodriguez returns to the squad as Jones and Sipowicz have a disagreement about the use of Michael Woodruff against his father. Sipowicz and Clark talk with Michael Woodruff and fail to get him to admit that his father murdered his mother. McDowell and Ortiz talk with the obsessive collector of "Stella Star" who they get to flip for the murder, followed by rape. In an effort to get him to confess, Sipowicz goes to Craig Woodruff and tells him what he knows and that he expects to break Woodruff's son into giving his father up. Craig tells him it is a family matter and his son isn't going to give him anything. Sipowicz tells him that he will put this case together, but for now, with nothing to charge Woodruff with, he is released. At the end of the tour, Rodriguez thanks his detectives for their support. Jones offers to help Michael Woodruff with his future, to help payback for a time when someone looked out for him when he was a young man in trouble. Ortiz finds Rodriguez down at the harbor.moreless
