'Law and Order: CI' 8.09 Clip: Murder in the Name of God

A killer goes out for a murder rampage in the name of God with the intention to send the victims to heaven. Detective Robert Goren assisted by Detective Alexandra Eames must solve the riddles before the murders go to any further length. To be aired on Sunday, June 21, the " Law & Order: Criminal Intent " episode has released a clip where Goren is analyzing the crime scene. In the kitchen, a man is found lying on a pool of blood with money scattered around. Goren reckons that he came home from work and got struck from the left upon entering the kitchen. Dr. Elizabeth Rodgers also concludes that a small but solid object, like hammer is used as the murder weapon. On the other side of the kitchen, a woman who appears to be wife of the dead man, was also found dead with blood behind her head. Curiously, a well-arranged towel is put on top of her breasts and Eames thinks the killer has concern for some modesty. Source & Clip
