Famous pop singer Elena Woods leaves a night club to return home. She walks past a dark alley and is suddenly attacked by a masked man. She screams, but no one hears her. Several hours later, a man finds Elena's body lying next to a dumpster in that same alley, and calls 911. Police arrive and cordon off the scene while Detectives Dante Vaughn and Lance Carlson investigate the alley for clues before inspecting Elena's body. They find three stab wounds in Elena's stomach as the medical examiner, Laura Anderson, points the detectives to Elena's neck, which shows signs of severe strangulation. Anderson also tells the detectives that the rape results and autopsy will be ran immediately.
