- You can drive down there.

- I'm already walking. Where is it?

On the infill.

A guy from LA just went down.

- What's he doing here?

- He waited a while for you,

then decided to go and take a look

himself. Hope that's OK.

Damn right it's OK.

With a bit of luck I'm going home.

- What have we got?

- A derelict.

They cut his throat.

- Who are you?

- Trimble.

Where do you fit in?

His father's the manager. He was

shooting vermin and found the body.

Get ready, cos you're in for a shock.

They slit him from ear to ear.

- Do you want me to make a statement?

- Not right now. Thank you.

- Did you bring it?

- Hope I'm not intruding.

Be my guest.

What have you got?

Old guy offed himself with a knife.

Can't find the knife.

They cut his throat.

Get behind the tape

and tell your father to put that fire out.

That ain't legal.

- What would make him do that?

- Don't annoy me, Travis.

- So where's the knife?

- I don't know.

I guess that dozer must have shifted it.

You're gonna need some hands

up here to look.

You heard look for the knife.

You, too, move that ass.

- You do the pockets.

- No, sir. I haven't started till Monday.

I'm a tourist.

Welcome to Eureka.

How long has he been feeling like this?

A week or two. Must have been

on kerosene. Stinks like a diesel engine.

Mr Blattis of our local newspaper.

- You sure it's suicide?

- Yeah. It was well rehearsed.

What does that mean?

Cut your own throat...

you're nervous and you hesitate.

He's got three trial cuts, lower left side

of the neck before the big one.

Got a dead dog here, sergeant.

Find the knife!

Venables, has the coroner called?

Yes, sir. He's delayed.

All right, I'm out of here.

I'll catch you later, Freddy T.

How does anyone

as dead as this lose a knife?

What about that kid, Ross?

Sh*t. Of course, the kid.

Travis. Find that kid

and get the knife off him.

He's gonna lie,

but he's got it, so get it.

Get on with it.

What are you staring at?

- I think I've found something horrible.

- What do you mean?

I think I've found a hand.

You're right.

It's a f***ing hand.

What do you think?

I think you' re here all day.

How much longer are we here?

We ain't gonna find anything else.

Give it another hour.

Did the photographer do the dogs?

- Dogs?

- There's two dogs.

He should do the dogs.

Got a brassiere here.

Looks like it could be blood.

- All right I'm coming.

- Sh*t.

The coroner wants to know

if we can release the derelict.

Yeah, he can go.

I think I'll lay down with him.

It's the only way I'm gonna get out of here.

It's good to be with you, Ross.

Glad you finally made it, bro.

- Want an umbrella?

- Yeah, thanks. Give me hand with this?

- Is this normal?

- Pisses down October to June.

- How long have you known Freddy?

- Ross?

- He was my sergeant when I was a rookie.

- He got you the job?

He would have if he could have.

He's been trying long enough.

Welcome aboard.

Caught the rain?

Sergeant Serato, Taylor and Travis I think

you know. I'll be with you in a minute.

Do me a favour.

Bring the rest of the stuff out of the car.

Hey, Travis, don't lose it.

Find the knife, sergeant?

No, but we have a theory.

The kid told me he didn't take it.

Maybe he was lying to you.

Is it true you found a hand?

Is that it?

- Interview over, Blattis.

- Come on, chief.

If it's sensitive, just tell me.

I'm not taking notes.

We got a body part. We don't know

what it is. Probably hospital debris.

Now you know as much as we do.

- Was it male or female?

- A woman's hand.

I'm grateful for your candour.

Keep this out of the paper.
