Hey, Dale.

Good morning, Hazel.

How we doing?

I'm great. There you go,

extra bacon today, okay?


Here you go.

Thanks so much.

Hey, you know, I hate to

bother you with this,

but there's more of those

cross-country ski tracks.

They go right

through my property.

Well, winter's almost over.

I know that,

but can you stop...

Yeah, yeah, I will. Okay.

Thank you.



I need to talk to you.

Can't you see I'm eating?

Hang on.

Okay, I'll wait

for you inside.



Here. So what's up?

Could you take that, please?

Bob Chandler has

been trying to reach

his mother all morning.

She's not answering.


Well, he's getting

back this afternoon.

Jolene stopped by

and knocked on

the door, no answer.

So, he's hoping

that you'll pass by,

make sure that Delia's okay.

And why can't you do it?

Because my shift

ended while you were

eating your breakfast.

Oh, right.

Let me take care

of that for you.

Oh, thanks.

Yeah, just top it up?

The cell phone.


No, it's fine.

It's been sitting in that

box for three months.

It's comfortable there.


Get some sleep.

Oh, will you stop by

Ernie's on the way?

There was a call

about some sort of

fracas over there.

A "frah-cas"?

That's what I said,



I think it's...

Try Delia again.


Delia, it's Hazel.

I'm letting myself in.


Yeah, I'm at Delia's.

Get over here

as fast as you can,

and call Spere. Yeah.

You got here fast.

This is wild.


You knew her?

Yeah. All my life.

She went to my mom's church.

I've never seen

anything like this.

What can you tell?

Well, it looks like

a knife to the neck.


But I'll have to

bring her to the city

and get a full report

from the coroner.

It could take a couple of weeks.

I can't wait two weeks.

Do me a favor,

take her to the church first.

I'll meet you there

and you can see what

you figure out

and then take her

to Mayfair Grace

for the autopsy.

I can't do that. Protocol.

I know what the protocols are.

I guess so. Sure.

She's your friend.


I appreciate it.


if you're gonna puke,

don't do it here.

No, I'm okay.

You sure?

Maybe I better

go outside and wait

for Bob to get here.

Yeah, I think

that's a good idea.


You okay?

Yeah, I'm okay.

You okay?


Uh, what about cars?

Were there any cars around

that you didn't recognize?

Oh, yeah, there were cars.

I mean,

that you didn't know,

that you hadn't seen before?


parked over there,

there was one.

A dark one.


Like, dark gray.

Gray. Okay.

And did you

see the driver?


How about the make?

Maybe Ronny will remember.

He knows cars.

If Ronny does figure out

anything would you have

him call me?


She's getting big.

Oh, God.

I'll... I'll get this.

I'll take him in the back.

Oh, thanks.

I've been trying

for months to get

her into hospice care.

I knew this day was coming

and I just never

figured it was going

to be like this.

So, did she have

any family heirlooms

or expensive jewelry

or anything in the house?

You think someone

was trying to rob her?

I don't know.

Was she expecting anyone,

I mean, besides you?


Can I see her?

Not... Not yet. Let's...

In a bit.

So, as you can see,

this cut is surgical.

Through the windpipe

and esophagus

on the first cut.

And the second

deepens all the way

down to the spinal cord.

Was he trying to get a trophy?

Well, another cut

and it was his,

so, I'd say no.

What happened to the finger?

He broke it before she died.

You can see the swelling.
