Cold Case Wiki


Hoping to track down the head of a human trafficking ring, the detectives reopen the case of a murdered longshoreman when they learn his death may be related. They soon discover the man was attempting to rescue a young Ukrainian woman from a life of forced prostitution and paid for it with his life. Meanwhile, Lilly must bring her mother home to stay with her after her drinking takes a turn for the worse.

  • Channary Dhiet's case box is visible in the bottom left corner when Scotty puts away Mike and the Jane Doe's case boxes.
  • Two lines were filmed but cut from this episode. One was Lena asking Lilly a second time if Mike is dead. The other was from a flashback with Lena tearfully recalling that Mike had been from an orphanage too and that she thought they were alone but they could have each other.
  • Two years after this episode aired, Michael Massee (Kiril) played a virtually identical role in a crossover episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and CSI: New York, as a trucker working for a human trafficking ring that would rather go to jail than face the consequences of identifying his employers to the police.
  • Lt. Stillman revealed that he used to work on the same longshore plant when he was 16 years old, explaining that he knows everything about shoreline jobs.
