Happy Friday! Thanks again for your feedback on the CSI survey. We've been looking over your feedback and already have some changes in mind in upcoming months.

So, are you ready for this week's challenge? Grab your forensics kits, CSI members, and get ready for some serious sleuthing as we open Case File No. 213.
