While searching the home, Horatio finds heroin in the son's room and learns that he is secretly a drug dealer. Shortly after the victim is taken from the scene, her body disappears during transport to Miami. However, as the CSIs uncover the scattered remains of the post-storm evidence, it seems that these two cases may have a deadly connection. Horatio finds that the lack of impact wounds on the victim's knees suggest that he struck the car as opposed to the car striking him. Now, as the evidence rejects Josh's version of what happened, the CSIs find themselves entangled in the world of fast-paced journalism and learn that there is a dangerously fine line between the truth and what sells newspapers. Across town, a year-old man is gunned down while withdrawing money from an ATM, but the motive doesn't appear to be robbery since the cash he withdrew is left behind. Horatio hunts for the person responsible for a vicious attack on a woman who was lured to a vacant condo and beaten with a piece of lumber.
