They go to visit Dr. Garrison, who was an instructor at the conference. He knew Dr. Burns -- there was a mix-up and Burns didn't have a hotel room, so Garrison gave him his, and in turn stayed at his house since it was so close. He sounds appropriately confused and baffled at the idea that someone might have been after him, telling the boys that he no longer performs surgery, just does consults and research and is about to retire. He also plays a lot of golf, including at Myrtle Beach. At the office, they look him up and find no complaints against him, but they do find that six years previously he bailed his meth-dealing daughter out of jail in South Carolina. She's at a halfway house in White Plains, so they go to pay her a visit.
Don't do meth! The makeup artists certainly did a good job making that point -- this girl is HAGGARD. She tells them she did her five years in New York, since her dad arranged to have her transferred there from South Carolina to look the hero. They don't get along, as evidenced by the fact that he didn't attend her sobriety ceremony on August 9 since he was playing golf in South Carolina. She admits that she got caught when someone called in an anonymous tip, and that some of her friends thought it was her dad. Back they go to Garrison's house to question him again, and he claims he didn't tell them about her because he thought it would upset her. He tells the sad tale of her descent into drugs and says that after his wife's death, he had her transferred to be close to him -- a golfing buddy of his was a warden who was able to pull some strings. He then claims he missed her sobriety ceremony because she never actually invited him; she only thinks she did because of her poor, faulty, drug-addled brain. He also denies that her meth friends could be going after him since they're still in jail, and tries to point the detectives back to Burns being the target.
