They hightail it to a police station in Minneapolis. They meet with a detective who goes over the case with them. The unnamed detective is played by Alan Ackles, who appears to be having a hell of a lot of fun with this role. He goes over the details of the case: Victim's body wasn't cut open, nothing was stolen besides his heart, he was in town for business and had no local connections. Papa Ackles shows them video from the park's security cameras, which caught the moments before the jogger's death. Dean makes a sound of surprise when he sees the pudgy jogger outstrip the thinner one. "That chubby guy the last person to see the vic alive?" Dean asks. "Other than the killer," Papa Ackles says. "Name's Paul Hayes. We pulled him in for questioning." He dismisses the possibility that Hayes is the killer, saying that they looked into his background and didn't find so much as a parking ticket. It's a little known fact that murderers are actually very conscientious drivers. Dean makes a face like he thinks the detective is a dumbass who doesn't know how to do his job. Papa Ackles plays back the video again. "I mean, look at him. Sure, he can run a little bit, but Thor he ain't. You think he's gonna grab Freddy Fitness here and throw him down and rip out his heart? I don't think so! Forgive me if I didn't take him out back and shoot him." Dean is so surprised and impressed with the vehemence with which the detective can deliver the snark that he can only stare in silence. Luckily, Sam thinks to ask where they can find Paul.
