Megan notes that the police have been by more than one on domestic disturbance calls. Mrs. Medina responds cagily, "My husband and I have had our troubles." Megan asks where Mr. Medina might be, and Mrs. Medina answers, "Your guess is as good as mine." Megan points out that they're going to need to speak to him; Mrs. Medina responds, "When my husband leaves for business, I don't ask where, and I don't ask for how long." We get the feeling that she doesn't want to know when he'll be coming back. Megan looks thoughtful. She then heads outside, where Speedle's just finished collecting a DNA sample from Cameron, and tells Sevilla she's going to want a minute with Cameron. She then talks to Cameron, and demonstrates the power of forensics by debunking his lie about not being at Father Carlos's with, "I know you were there -- we matched your lip prints to a glass we found, and your shoe prints match the ones we took from the floor." Cameron tries Lie #2: "I just went to tell him, I didn't want to be an altar boy anymore." How do we know it's Lie #2? Because it's really pretty innocuous on the things-I-would-lie-to-the-police-about scale of things, and because we still have thirty-one minutes left in this episode and therefore need to discover Cameron's deep dark reason for visiting the priest around the forty-something-minute mark. We do, however, find out that Cameron claimed to be at Ollie Oop, an indoor skating park, at the time of Father Carlos's death. This scene ends with a flashback of the Cameron-Father Carlos interaction (the boy screaming, "Get away from me!" and the priest imploring, "Cameron! Wait!"), and after Megan asks if Father Carlos ever hurt Cameron, he replies, "That's between me and God now." Raise your hand, everyone who automatically assumed Horatio would materialize at that moment. Well, I'm sure Horatio automatically assumed he'd materialize at that moment.
