‘Killing Fields’ Episode 7 Recap: “Killer Among Us”
At the beginning of last night’s episode of Killing Fields, we learned that the suspect David Cruz isn’t a DNA match to either of the two DNA profiles in the Carrie Singer case. Potter comes into the office carrying a new picture of a new suspect who is a dead ringer for the composite. However, the image was blurred out. Also, the name was left out as well.
A crime line caller called in a tip that they had been partying with the new suspect and he had brought up details about the case. Detectives Susan Morgan and Randy Patrick go to question the relative living at the suspect’s old address. The suspect’s ex-wife, whose face and name have been blurred or left out (not only to protect her identity but also because they never signed network waiver to be featured in the show) is interviewed.
She says she is unfamiliar with the Singer case. However, she says her ex-husband was leading three separate lives with three different women and threatened to kill her if she tried to stop him. Somehow, detective Kris Coughlin gets a search warrant for the new suspect’s DNA. They decide to go to his workplace to obtain it. Coughlin sits in the back while Patrick and the suspect sits up front.
The unnamed suspect denies knowing Carrie. He’s a little nervous but eagerly gives Coughlin his DNA through a swab of his saliva. Meanwhile, Potter and Patrick confront Trabion Tynes. Trabion lashes out at the detectives and shows his true nature. Potter says his actions and body language gives away his anger at being caught.
Elsewhere, Susan and Patrick go to question Jason Denson about the Tynes family. He said Johnnie was more of an acquaintance and that there was no bad blood between him and Johnnie. He also confirms that Trabion would beat Shameka if she made eye contact with anyone. Susan introduces Shameka to the Commonwealth of Virginia’s attorneys. The purpose is to determine if she’s truthful and if she could testify in court. They believe she is telling the truth. Shameka herself states she could give a testimony.
Next week on Killing Fields
The detectives finally arrest Trabion Tynes. The episode’s title “The Arrest” kind of gives that away. We will also find out the DNA results of the new suspect when they come in on next week’s season finale.
