She was attending college on a soccer scholarship and was well-liked by everyone. The investigation reveals however that Danielle had recently lost her scholarship due to an injury but somehow still managed to pay her $57,000 tuition. She had recently broken up with her boyfriend and may have been having an affair wit one of her teachers. When it appears that the may have also been working as a call girl, Jane believes the solution to the crime rests with finding her pimp.
