The killer was a car-parts seller named Roger Andrews, owner of a company called Thayst. Roger had just opened his company when Jacqueline came to him to talk about legal matters, as the car-parts that Roger was selling were stolen. Roger didn't want her to spoil everything just when he was starting. Jacqueline told him she had to visit her colleague, Ashley Jamin, to talk about his case. He asked her to give her a lift, and when she got to the fields where Ashley was, he shot her with the shotgun and escaped in his car.

When he was arrested, he explained his plan to the team, which made no sense at all. With the rim of one of his wheels, he crafted the bullets for the murder, implying also a foundry in the case. It's not known why he did that. At the trial, Roger only said that he cared about his business. Judge Gonzalez sentenced him to 50 years in jail with no chance for parole, both for killing Jacqueline and for selling stolen car-parts.

The next day, after the team went to thank Ashley Jamin for her co-operation in the investigation, the team found out that Jamin Family Company was about to buy the Oak Valleys from a land buyer with a bad reputation, Steve Zasts. Jacqueline tore the contract up before they could reach an agreement, since as a lawyer she noticed irregularities in the transaction.
