Back at the office, they explain the whole thing to Anita and Connie; Anita comments that flipping 40 houses in two months is "Nice work if you can get it." This police thing must pay really badly if she is sounding wistful about a con -- especially one that they've uncovered. They think Dennis or someone he knew was driving the car that mowed down the poor naïve Iowans. The one other name besides his that keeps recurring in the paperwork is Kim Brody from the title company.
Kim is blonde, soft-spoken, and played by January Jones, so probably is going to be a bit of a key to this whole case, I'd imagine. She plays dumb and stunned when they tell her everything Dennis did, but she's able to provide his driver's license. Back at the office, Lupo tells Greene that through facial recognition software they were able to ID Dennis Langdon as Phil Newsome. In addition to having a nice rap sheet, he's got known ties to the "Fatone crew" (Anita helps us out -- they're a Mob family), and Nicky Fatone has a cigar shop five blocks from the accident site. She has them get a search warrant.
Warrant in hand, they go into the bar with a lot of police backup and find Nicky with a nice bruise on his forehead. They also find a bunch of fresh gunshots and a ransacked safe -- it looks like someone ripped off all the cash, and may have been coming from the robbery when they snuffed out Mom and Daughter.
Back from the break, Connie explains just that theory. Green and Lupo think it's an inside job, Nicky's not talking, so they want to do a sting on Fatone and Langdon. Connie points out that they don't know where Langdon is, but they explain that they have a person who might know, and they need her to put on some "prosecutorial pressure" to get them to cooperate. A delighted Connie is happy to oblige, and puts the screws to Kim Brody. They'll turn a blind eye to the extremely generous tips she was getting and the fact that she never once questioned his operation, if she helps get a meeting with him.
Clearly it worked, because Langdon meets with a hard-luck couple -- none other than Lupo and Connie. Even in a hoodie and tank she looks too polished and gorgeous for the role, but with his stubble and slight puffiness he sells the whole thing. They get Langdon to walk through his whole spiel, convincing them that he's just helping them improve their credit and keep their home just by signing it over to him. Let's hope this serves as a cautionary tale for some poor joe out there who can't afford his house, because this is so shady, it's hard not to judge anyone dumb enough to fall for it, and I do feel a little bit bad judging someone who is about to lose his home. Next, Langdon meets with the buyer, Green, and Kim to do the paperwork and make the giant cash handover. Nothing says "legitimate transaction" like a crumpled manila envelope with fifty thousand dollars inside.
