Body in the Park; Ruby Street Shooting Jun 4, 2004

LOCATION: MIAMI In the opening episode, investigators in Miami attempt to solve two brutal shootings committed at point-blank range. In the first case, GANGS OF LITTLE HAVANA, the team finds a young man lying dead on the sidewalk in Little Havana near an area noted for gangland violence. From the outset the murder appears to be the latest tragedy in the turf war between two gangs. At first the investigating team is hampered by a wall of silence from a frightened community. But hour by hour the full story of what happened begins to emerge. In the second case, EXECUTION IN COCONUT GROVE, it appears that a convenience store owner in Coconut Grove had invited someone she knew into her home and was then shot twice in the head. The detectives quickly discover that the victim also sold jewelry, and a ransacked room suggests that the murder could be the result of a robbery gone wrong. Or is that what the murderer hoped the detectives would think? With no obvious suspects, a major forensic operation gets underway with the house examined inch by inch for fingerprints in the hope of putting a name and a face on the killer.
