Did You Know?


The episode is loosely based on the case of Yaser Said, who in that case, murdered his two daughters in Dallas in 2008, claiming it as an honor killing before fleeing into hiding, because he discovered his daughters were dating non-Muslim boys and he felt they were disgracing their religious beliefs as a result of being corrupted by American values in his eyes. Yaser Said is currently on the FBI's Most Wanted List. See more »


After Natalia and Jesse find inch-deep heel marks in the ash of the burned garage, Wolfe determines by crushed ash on the tips that they were made after the fire began. When confronted with the evidence, Salumeh Farooq recounts setting her husband on fire. However, when she starts the fire, she is standing on concrete, away from the fire trail. She then runs away and doesn't come back. Since the fire department, paramedics and police showed up quickly, Salumeh could not have come back to stand in the ash over the body. The plot fails to explain how her heels could have been inch deep in ash. See more »

Cultural details of the story doesn't add up.
3 February 2013 | by hosaboonSee all my reviews

This was the first episode of this show that I saw. At the first look, the CSI officer's good looking outfits capture my attention. Then the supper clean work environment and empty glass shelves of their laboratories. Then casual interrogation with the suspects which were more like a chat with their family lawyers. On the positive side, the story unfolds in an accepting manner and you can easily follow how they discover the facts. The concept of arranged marriage is still an accepted tradition among some families from middle eastern countries. And still some (dis)honoring related murders happens among some uneducated and strictly religious or tradition-oriented families. But the Faroogh family portrait in this show are far more high class than a family that I expect these actions from. As a guy from middle east, I had a hard time figuring out which country is the Faroogh family from. The names and clothes selection and the accents were implying a high class Pakistanian family. Then suddenly some Farsi word appears in the documents recovered from the crime scene. Then some more hints to Iranian heritage of the father of the family. It seems to me that for the writers and directors of this episode didn't bother even asking the Iranian actor of this episode about these details, which is an indication of the ignorance toward details.

This lack of attention to the details of the show was the most annoying part. At least for me and my wife.
