Subject's name is John Kramer.

I've seen better days.

Some kind of backdoor brain surgery.

Let's check the stomach.

What the hell...

Get homicide here. Now!

Where is it?

It's in his stomach.

Cut it out.

Are you there, Detective?

If so, you're probably the last man standing.

Now, perhaps you will succeed where the others

have failed.

You think you will walk away untested?

I promise that my work will continue.

You think it's over just because I'm dead?

It's not over. The games have just begun.

Who's there?

Talk to me.

Talk to me!

Talk to me!!!...

Stop it!


Stop it!

Who's doing this to me?!

Just stay away from me!!!

What'd I do?

Right side clear. Left side clear.


In position.

Standing by.

Alright then.

It seem open.

We have device.

You get eyes in there before you go in.

Get some eyes in here.

Hurry now.

Doorway's clear.

It's Kerry, b*tch.

Rigg, don't do that.

Rigg, I said no!!!


Stop it!!!

You're not going through that door.



Oh sh*t...

Give me the Coroner's office.


Somebody get those rats off her.

Cut her down.

You know I can't do that.

Just cut her down, please.

Are you trying to get yourself killed?

You know never to go through

an unsecured door, ever.

Thought she was still alive.

Thought I could save her.

Did you ever think that we would've

end up here, for a starter?


Didn't see it happening like this.

Why the hell are you still talking?

Sir I need you to save her.

That's what we do.

Right, cherish your life.


The f***ing motto. We're supposed to

cherish our lives.

But how the hell are we supposed to

do that when this is our life?

We chose this. You go home.

... is here to see you


- Detective Hoffman.

- Yeah?

I'm Special Agent Lindsey Perez. This is

Special Agent Peter Strahm.

How can I help the FBI?

We're here about Detective Kerry. She

was our liaison.

"Open the door. You will find me."


What's this?

The key that came from our last

message from Detective Kerry.

"Open the door and you will find me"

mean anything to you?


Where's the body?

Crime scene photographer's flash

picked up this bullet casing.

It was lodged between the body

and the device.

Run it for prints.

Give us a minute would you?


The lock wasn't opened.

She couldn't get out.

It was constructed for her execution.

It betrayed the rules.

Not a Jigsaw trap then.


Amanda Young, the accomplice--

This wasn't done by Amanda Young.

Excuse me?

Detective Kerry weighed approximate 130lbs.

Amanda Young's arrest report has her at 107lbs.

She couldn't get her up there alone.

John Kramer was--

Bedridden cancer patient?

He's brains. Not brawn.

He was also an engineer. He could've

rigged pulleys that--

Or... Someone else could've helped them.

Special Agent, if you're here for any other

reason than just to assist.

We're here to find the person your

department couldn't, Detective.

The one helping Jigsaw and Amanda Young.

Excuse me.

We found a harlequin doll in your possession.

What's that about?

A toy.

Kids play with toys in the holidays.

How about the tricycle?

The tricycle's from John's youth...

A grown man has a tricycle his whole life?

I'm sure you've kept things that

were important to you.

Look, Ms. Tuck. Is there any reason we should

be concerned with your safety?

Perhaps, you should be more

concerned with yourself.

Why don't you tell me everything you know about

John and let's start at the beginning.

John's life defines pretty much it......??????

So, why don't we start at the end and

let's work our way backwards.

I represent Mrs. Tuck.

She knows something.

I thought you were going home.

You have a vacation time, right?

Take it.

Finish the remodeling. Spend

some time with Tracy.

She understands.

Then, don't take it for granted.

Eric is still out there man.

Eric's been missing for six months. Kerry's

was gone for four days.

I can only be as optimistic as the facts allow.

Yeah. Well I'm in it until I find him.

Finding his body's not going to vindicate us.

Finding him alive will.

It's time to let go.

I want you to go home.

I'll call you later to make sure

everything's okay.

Who's he?

Lieutenant Rigg, our SWAT commander.

What's his problem?

Everyone around him keeps dying.

What's it say?

It says I tried calling you four times. It says dinner is

in fridge and at the bottom it says I love you.

I need to help my mum for a few

days. Just come with me.

No, I can't.

You can't or you won't?

What you can't do is save everyone.


Tracy, please listen to me...

John Kramer owned a company called

The Urban Renewal.

No irony in that, huh?

What was Rigg watching?

Jill Tuck's interrogation.

She was Jigsaw's ex.

It's old.

Why's a SWAT guy watching that?

What's wrong? I really think we should tell Hoffman

what Detective Kerry said in her last message.

She said two officers might be in danger but

until we know who we're not causing any panic...

If Detective Hoffman or anyone else in this precinct
