The scene opens with two men arguing. One tells another that he saw him dancing inappropriately with his finance. He walks out and Abby, the bride, asks what is going on. The man tells her that her future husband is jealous. Later, the groom goes to find his fiancé and goes into the room of the man he was arguing with earlier. His father and his fiancé’s father are with him and they find the man in a bathtub with his throat cut. The police come and they tell that the victim is George, the groom’s cousin. The medical Examiner tells that he must of killed himself, but when they take him out of the tub, they find that his private parts are missing and have been cut off. Morales and TJ talk to George’s cousin, Billy, and he says that George told Abby that Billy had a fiancé before and he turned his back to her. He tells that he was in his room last night. Morales comes up to TJ and he says that George could have had company from an Escort Service, but Morales says that is not true because there is no return call from the Escort Service. ..
