Within moments, the small blue car is being pulled out of the canal. Once it's on land, Horatio notices that the window's spiderwebbed, i.e. rent with small, circular cracks caused by the impact of something against the glass. Delko -- who apparently went diving at some point in the car-retrieval process -- leans in to look and take the guess, "It could have shattered when Jane Doe was shot, just like Abby Sandoval." Horatio points out, "The difference is, Jane Doe had no glass in her wound." Delko says he'll try to lift prints off the steering wheel to see if he can give the woman a name, but Horatio spies a purse and pulls it out. Delko asks, "Any ID?" What, like Horatio's going to use his x-ray vision in front of mortals to figure that stuff out? Horatio tells him to hang on, and finds a check-cashing card belonging to one Bonita Cruz of Southwest 10th Street. Delko notes that Abby Sandoval lived in the same neighborhood. Horatio remembers, "Southwest 14th Street, right?" Delko replies, "Yeah, I know a lot of girls like that. They come from Cuba, Honduras, Nicaragua, looking for a better life, but they wind up cleaning toilets in Bal Harbour." Given a choice between that and being shot at or tortured by assorted political goon squads, I'm thinking the toilets might have a slight edge. Not that I think immigrant exploitation is the proudest component of the American marketplace; it's just that it might help to have a little perspective, is all. Anyway, Horatio actually pins the problem by pointing out how few people actually pay attention to the folks who clean their offices and homes by saying, "Yes, the invisible ones." Delko points out, "Perfect victims. No one gives them a second look." Delko happens to find a shell casing right then, much to everyone's delight.
