‘Criminal Minds’ Recap: Why the New Agent Won’t Ever Look at Suitcases the Same Way Again

J.J. and Rossi go to the medical examiner’s office and find out that the new victim has defensive lacerations on her hands and feet. She also has lipstick all over her lips. She was only wearing lingerie when she was found and had spermicide on her fingers. They conclude she was preparing for consensual sex.

Reid and Prentiss go to the police station and Reid reveals the condition of his reinstatement. After every 100 days on the job, he has to take 30 days off. Prentiss already knew about this; she was consulted about her opinion prior to the board making their decision. She has arranged him to teach seminars during his 30 days off and insists she’s confident in Reid’s abilities.

Agent Matt Simmons Makes the Leap from ‘Beyond Borders’ to …

As a member of the International Response Team on Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Agent Matt Simmons (Daniel Henney) was used to packing his bags. Then he joined the original Criminal Minds’ Behavioral Analysis Unit in last week’s Season 13 premiere (Beyond Borders was canceled this summer).

His first proper assignment: finding a serial killer who stuffs his victims in suitcases. “At first, Matt was a shoulder to cry on, coming to the BAU’s aid when they needed him, providing strength and solidarity,” Henney says. “Now he’s going out into the field, breaking down doors and tackling bad guys. He’s also very good at profiling killers.”

Retired FBI agent opens new investigation into Anne Frank’s betrayal

It has been 73 years since Anne Frank and her family were betrayed, but one retired FBI agent won’t give up on the case just yet.

Vince Pankoke launched a new cold case investigation, along with over a dozen other forensic experts and historians, to solve the unanswered question of who betrayed Anne Frank’s hiding place, The Guardian reported.

Pankoke conceded that the investigation was more of a fact-finding mission and would not lead to arrests or criminal charges.

“We are not trying to point fingers or prosecute…,”  he told the British daily. “There is no statute of limitation on the truth.”

The investigation is being assisted by the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, which has given Pankoke’s team access to its archives.

Researchers will use modern investigative techniques and software to analyze data and develop new leads. The team has already reconstructed the scene on the day of the Franks’ arrest.
