Plot Edit

In the Season 8 opener, Goren and Eames investigate the shooting of Councilman Neil Hayes-Fitzgerald's stepdaughter Stacy and her boyfriend Rick. Stacy survives by playing dead under Rick's dead body. The drug-addicted pair were involved in a blackmail scheme targeting Stacy's stepfather.

It is eventually revealed that Neil had been molesting Stacy for years, and that he is grooming the babysitter as a potential next victim. The final twist is that Stacy's young sister is actually her daughter by Neil.
