Detroit 1-8-7: Beaten/Cover Letter

A young waitress - the fiance of a Detroit boxer who is poised to earn a lot of money from his next fight - is found beaten to death at a diner. Fitch, Washington, Sanchez and Stone take on the case, and none of them are thrilled that Jess Hawkins will be tagging along and observing their detective work.

Meanwhile, Longford and Mahajan check into the cold case of a man who was murdered five years ago when his mother stops by the precinct with a handful of love letters she had found. They track down the woman he was corresponding with to get some answers.
