A meter maid witnesses a child being kidnapped and taken away in a car. The detectives race against time to find him, but it's too late - the boy, Kevin, shows up dead. At the home of the car's owner Roger Kraslow, Green and Cassady find ''another'' boy: Torey Quinlan, who was abducted five years ago. Kraslow's story doesn't add up, and it's discovered the killer was actually Torey. After speaking to him, Olivet concludes he has the mental capacity for free will and was fully aware it was wrong to kill Kevin. Torey had developed a father-son bond with Kraslow, and was angry at what he saw as Kraslow trying to replace him with a younger boy.
