Heart of Darkness
by Gurpreet Bhatti
A schoolgirl's body is found in a park in the poor part of town. Beaten and stabbed to death. CSI confirm she's a 16 year old Asian girl and has been there for approximately three days. Likely to have been killed elsewhere and her body dumped. Her school uniform is from a top selective all girls' secondary. No missing person reports for anyone fitting her description. Tanner gives Stone a message from the bosses. Given the victim's heritage, the case needs to be dealt with sensitively, Stone is immediately angry, what the hell's sensitive about murder?

Produced and directed by Pauline Harris.
