Here are clips from Friday night's episode of CSI: NY, "Food For Thought," in which the team of detectives enter the "competitive world of gourmet food trucks" where murder was on the menu. Chung Chung! Oh wait that's a different show.
Anyway, after a food truck is blown up with explosives at a food festival, there are a couple of suspects: Was it the rival hot dog cart owner encroached upon by the upstart food truck, or the double-crossed chef/owner of a brick and mortar angered by one of his cooks leaving to start a food truck with allegedly stolen recipes?
Spoiler alert: It was neither! Turns out it was the hot dog carts owner's son, who had uncovered that the rival food truck was a front for a prostitution ring — customers would order the "#3 Special" and pay $500, and in exchange they'd be given a styrofoam box with the address and room number of a hotel, where a prostitute would be waiting. The food truck was an easy way to launder cash! Here are a few clips:
