Larry thinks the killer is only 5-9 and weighing 170 pounds. Her work with the military keeps popping up, but it’s all cloak and dagger. Larry relocates to a small pool and it generates an idea. He runs back to his office where Colby is still waiting. Larry proves that it’s not someone in the military who committed the murder. Don goes to see the cousin again.
