Arrives steve

Steve arrives at the morgue.

Deveaux dead 2


Continuing where the last issue left off, to both Dexter and Deborah's surprise, Deveaux is dead. An upset Deborah states the body they are seeing is not Deveaux, at least not until his employer, Steve Gonzalez, confirms it. Steve arrives at the morgue, and with no sign of remorse or other feelings whatsoever states Deveaux is dead because he commited suicide. Deborah wants to know why Steve states such.  Steve states Deveaux killed Arthur Bleek, and because the Miami Police was hot on his tail he commited suicide out of desperation. Dexter and Deborah do not believe a word he is saying, however he still replies it was suicide. Steve gets off the morgue and Dexter and Deborah continue the investigation. Dexter convinces the female coroner to let him take care of the Autopsy documents.

Dexter finds the cause of death.

Alone in his lab Dexter discovers something and contacts Deb to talk about it during lunch. Dexter found a needle mark on  Deveaux. He states the cause of death was Hyperkalemia, which is an overdose of Potassium. Dexter remarks it is a clever way to get rid of Deveaux as with Hyperkalemia,  it causes paralysis, then a heart attack and after that the Potassium levels go back to normal and the traces of the overdose dissapear after the person is death. Deborah theorizes Deveaux was injected with an overdose of Potassium before getting to his motorcycle, which during the drive, kicked in and caused his death at the wheel. Dexter plans

While walking the streets of Miami and chatting with Dexter, Deborah spots a bald man planning to rob a blonde woman with a knife. Deborah puts her cup on the floor and slaps continously the man with a baton, preventing him from assaulting the women and arresting him afterwards. She then proceeds to pick her cup and continue theorizing why Steve killed Arthur and Deveaux. Both of them found awkward that Gonzalez owns a Ferrari and such an apartment while running a non-profit organization. They discover the deaths are linked to Mar Dorado and to the horrible fact that Steve might be using his patients as slave-workers on Mar Dorado while also stealing from their bank accounts.
