When a Catholic church sexton is found murdered in the sanctuary, Detectives Goren and Eames search for a thieving drug addict who works there, but their investigation grows dicey when it appears that the victim was skimming church funds -- and diverting them to the suspect. A further complication arises when the police make another grim discovery that implicates other important church officials in a widening scandal. Written by Anonymous

Respirators are masks used to protect people from inhaling dust or gases. It's a common mistake made in television and movies to call a ventilator a respirator. Ventilators are the devices used in hospitals, extended care facilities, and in some homes to support patients who either can't breathe on their own or have difficulty breathing. See more »

Good works
1 May 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Back in my working days at Crime Victims Board I handled a claim for the murder of a church sexton at none other than St. Patrick's Cathedral. There was no investigation there except to delve into the perpetrator's psyche to find out why he clubbed a sexton to death when he tried to throw out the mentally disturbed perpetrator in front of a lot of witnesses.

This CI episode also involved the murder of Stephen Henderson a church sexton at a much smaller Catholic Church which is known for doing good works with the homeless population.

The focus is at first on Alex Feldman who is a kid from the foster care system who has a violent temper and a nasty drug habit. We know he's capable of it when we see him and running buddy Renoly Santiago beat up a hotdog vendor for some cash to score.

Then later Feldman is murdered and Goren and Eames have to shift their attention.

All I'll say here is that both priest Michael O'Keefe and Vincent D'Onofrio prove themselves mensches.

Feldman really steals the show in this story.
