Previously on “If You Can’t Stand the Heat” (air date: Aug. 25, 2o14) the Boston Police Department (BPD) took the case of a dead man found submerged inside a bathtub. The team first thought that the victim died of hypothermia while trying to keep himself cool because of the on-going heat wave. Unfortunately, Maura found out that he was strangled to death, so they continued with the investigations.
The victim named Richard was a 28-year-old instant millionaire. According to his landlord, Richard had Alex, his girlfriend who also works as his stock broker. Alex shared that Richard told everyone that he found the money at a park. It was during the time that the authorities are doing a drug bust operation in the same area. She also told them that Richard is currently working on his own novel.
Their investigations led them to Rich’s identity. It was true that Jane and Korsak headed to the office. They don’t have much on the victim, but the landlord did say that there had been a operation there. However, Richard and the undercover cop exchanged a few thousand dollars. He even lied to his girlfriend about his novel and that he was a drug dealer.
They probed further that someone was looking for Richard before he died. They also learned that someone broke into mausoleum owned by his family. It was also the place where he met up with his girlfriend to bring the money.
Later on, more information about Rich’s past was revealed. He previously worked in a mailroom of Chen Industries, which was owned by a wealthy Chinese family. He was involved in kidnapping the CEO’s son. They tried to contact the CEO, but it was only her daughter who was interested in telling them about it.
They found out that the CEO’s son was now living inside a mental institution. He refused at first, but he helped them with the investigations. He said that he was drunk when he left a bar when two guys captured him. He also shared that he thought that he was put in a location near sewage and water.
In the end, the guy who was looking for Richard in the bar was his accomplice. The man had a boat and works at a local fish market. He thought that Richard moved all the money from the mausoleum, so he killed him. Maura previously said that the water inside the bathtub lacked sodium, a process which was used by sailors.
