Shawn looked at the screen on Amy’s phone. How had he missed it? In hindsight, he could see everything. His mind began to connect the dots and he knew he had enough to get their quarry to talk.

He heard the door latch behind him and moved out of the way for Jules and Lassie. He put a finger to his lips and showed them Amy’s phone. Juliet nodded. Shawn smiled and raised a hand to his head. It was showtime.

“Aahhh! Chris, what are you doing? The police are here now, there’s no way out!”

“How long have you known?” the young man’s voice echoed back.

“Not until here in the basement,” Shawn said honestly. “The spirits have been a bit stingy with this case.” He said that last bit for the benefit of the detectives. “But it’s all coming together now. You’d always been into astronomy since you were a kid, got a telescope for your…ninth birthday.”

“How did you--” Chris sounded interested before he remembered he wasn’t supposed to.

“You expanded your hobby to include geology when you learned about meteorites, a bit of the universe here on Earth.”

“He’s the one who found the rocks!” declared Amy.

Shawn glared at her. “Really?”

“He doesn’t like it when people cut in,” Gus informed her.

Amy mimed zipping her lip.

“So you started digging in the backyard and then progressed to public land. You accumulated quite the collection but no one would take a teen seriously. You started e-mailing photos to different experts so they could tell you what you had. You did it all with aliases complete with false degrees.”

“Thomas Kershaw and Jason Harris!”

“Jules? Don’t you know better by now?”

“Sorry,” said his beautiful blonde girlfriend.

“Heidecker wrote back to you wanting to help you set up the exhibit in return for letting him examine the rocks for his theory. You got a job here so you could keep an eye on the proceedings. Everything was going well until you discovered that Heidecker was taking credit for the collection, especially those glittery ones. You couldn’t have that; it was your young life’s work after all.”

“This is all because of credit?” Lassie complained. “Scientists are so…petty.”

“This from the man who has threatened to kill people for touching his coffee cup,” Jules shot back.

“I wouldn’t have minded if he shared credit,” came Chris’ voice, this time a little closer. “But he wanted it all for himself. I threatened to tell the truth but he said he’d deny he even knew who I was. I kept all the emails, but…”

“As they were addressed to your aliases, you had no real proof,” the Doctor finished. “What? Everybody else was joining in.”

Shawn looked at the Doctor before continuing. “You waited for your moment to get close top Heidecker to get even with him. He didn’t know you so you could start up innocent conversations about geology. Heidecker glowed at the prospect of someone coming to him for information. You waited until the night before the exhibit opened to tell him who you were and what you wanted.”

Chris was mere feet away now and he held the stones in his hands. “He was examining them in the hall and I confronted him with the truth about who I was. I quoted his emails and told him that I would petition to have the rocks removed until ownership could be established. He taunted me that no one would believe me. I grabbed for the rocks and they fell to the floor. He picked them up in his bare hand and…”

“You knew he was already a dead man. You had seen it happen before. These rocks absorb life from living things, sucks ‘em dry.”

“So no murder,” stated Juliet.

“It was an accident and there was nothing that could have been done,” the Doctor stated.

“There’s still lying to police and hindering an investigation.” Lassiter took out his cuffs, walked up to Chris and pulled his left hand behind his back

Juliet kept him covered and Mirandized him while the Doctor moved around behind Lassie and Chris to take the rocks and contain them. Chris tossed the last one in the air and Shawn reacted by diving for the thing. The moment his hand closed over the object, he realized what he had done: suicide by alien rock.
