Norman got involved in a murder investigation after he found the dead body of his workmate inside one of the foundry's ovens, and realized that it was Craig Mistem. From Evan Day's point of view, he was the prime suspect, as he had a motive. He had lent money to Craig to buy a ring for Ashley Jamin but in fact he ended up buying a cheap second-hand ring and kept the rest of the money. His inocence was demonstrated when the true killer, Stephanie Queen, was arrested.
The day after the investigation, he asked the police for help to find his salary check which he had lost at the foundry, and after the team helped him, Norman shared a meal with the player.
