Evan Westcott was an attempted murderer who appeared in the Ninth Season of CSI: NY


Three years prior to Unspoken, Westcott, who worked as a public school teacher, was investigated on the orders of Beverly McCord, the principal of the school he worked at. Previously, she witnessed him touching a female student's injured leg, inspecting a scrape on her knee after she had fallen and then hugged her to assure her it was fine, interpreting the way he did so as possible molestation. Consequently, Westcott spent six months without pay while he was being investigated. After being cleared, it took him another year to get his job back. Consequently, he quit his job and his anger grew towards Beverly, causing him to steal a gun from Grant Hamilton's yacht.

Season Nine[]


Westcott then attended a party that he was invited to and attempted to shoot Beverly while she stood on the stage with Hamilton during a press conference. However, he missed her and grazed Hamilton instead. In the aftermath, Lindsay Messer received a head injury and was knocked unconscious after seeing Westcott shoot at the stage. He then visited her in the hospital she was taken to and wrote a message on the window after fogging up the glass, reading "I'm Sorry". However, he unintentionally left a fingerprint, which would lead to his arrest.

It is implied that he initially planned to kill Lindsay but he changed his mind when he saw the drawing made by her daughter in her hand.

After the shooting, he ran through an alley where two kids, a boy called Lonnie and a girl named Aimee were. He dumped his gun in a dumpster, then hopped the fence. The kids then looked inside the dumpster, causing Lonnie to pull out the gun. He ejected the magazine, and, while playing with the gun, pointed it at Aimee, accidentally firing it at her. The round remaining in the gun's chamber fired, resulting in the death of Aimee, even after Don Flack attempted to save her. This was then explained to Westcott by Flack after he was arrested.
