Forced Entry is the fourteenth episode in Season One of CSI: Miami.


A nude man is found tied to his bed, having suffocated while he was being sexually assaulted. Also a crematorium owner is murdered. When they investigate, they discover dozens of bodies that were never cremated.


A nude man is found bound, gagged and raped in a luxurious house. Investigating the man's history they find he had several aliases and no proof of how he gained money, this means the victim was likely a criminal. Tracking down the victim's tattoo, Horatio finds his former partner who confirms they were robbers, the partner confronted the man who said he had a new gig but refused to tell what it is. After one of the items recovered from the crime is tracked to having been stolen from a woman who was raped, Horatio realizes the new gig is that the man now rapes his victims to stop then from talking. The owner of the item committed suicide with a pair of scissors similar to the one used to tie the victim, her husband is called as suspect and is incensed for this, but still says he's innocent. The scissor is later proven no to be the right one. When other evidence is tracked to Erin Murphy, a woman who owns a store that sells the same type of fabric used to gag the victim, they search the place. After further evidence is found Horatio interrogates Erin, she says she has no idea what they are talking about and provides a solid alibi. Horatio realizes it was actually Erin's husband Leonard who was raped, Leonard confesses the victim went to his store and didn't recognized him, Leonard then got the man's address, went there and killed him in revenge.

A crematorium owner, Benito Ramon, is killed and dozens of bodies are found dumped, Eric and Calleigh investigate and discover one of the bodies is of a female murder victim as well. Ink in her body is linked to a new nightclub owned by two Puerto Rican cousins, Michael Guerra and Jarod Parker. The victim was a former dancer who went to another club and was stealing clients, they suspect the cousins of killing her because of a bruise in the body like the rings they wear, but their lawyer Vincent Graziano refutes this and the rings come out clean. However further investigation reveals Vincent also has a ring and is the club's true owner, the cousins are just fronts. Vincent killed the victim for her betrayal and took the body to Benito to destroy it, promising a VIP entrance on the club in return. However when Vincent returned and discovered Benito was just dumping the bodies, he killed him as well.
