  • Charles Frey


Closing the CaseEdit

While searching through Mateo's computer, Tao finds a video made by Mateo in which he describes through flash cards how after swim practice, Frey took him home and molested him for a long time. Raydor confronts Frey with the video, but he denies it and threatens to get an attorney. Provenza suggests that after Mateo's father told him that Frey was the one who kicked him off the team, not his parents, he got drunk and went to Frey's home to confront him. There was no second man with a gun and Frey murdered him to cover up the molestation. However, as Mateo broke in, it could be passed off as justifiable homicide and the statute of limitations has expired on any molestation charges they could've brought against Frey. Coming up with an idea, Raydor decides to tell the media that the rumors of molestation were groundless despite the media not having run a story like that. Raydor's plan works and over a dozen young men come in to tell stories of Frey molesting them. However, all are over the statute of limitations and Frey can't be charged with any of them. As the squad starts to lose hope of getting something to arrest Frey with, a teenager named Kevin shows up with a story of molestation. His was two years before and is thus still within the statute of limitations and they can arrest Frey for molesting him and are sure more victims they can charge him with will follow. With just Kevin's testimony, they can send Frey to prison for at least ten years, but while they can use Mateo's video and murder as evidence, Frey can't be charged with his murder due to the break-in allowing Frey to make a case for justifiable homicide. This leaves Mateo's father deeply upset as he blames himself for his son's death as well as Frey, but they assure him that Mateo is a hero as his video allowed them to expose Frey for what he really is and get him for molesting all those boys. Shortly afterwards, Raymond Suarez, the supposed second robber arrives at the precinct, having been camping with friends and totally unaware of what happened or that the police were looking for him for robbery until his job told him that Raydor was looking for him. Sykes pulls him aside to break to him the news of Mateo's molestation and murder. Later, as Frey surrenders himself to the police, Mr. Torres shoots him in the head, killing him. He is then arrested for murder but finds it worth it to avenge Mateo.
