Neither Pride nor LaSalle gave up on their investigation. They knew the man that confessed to killing LaSalle’s brother had given a false confession and so they went about proving it. They traced Pat Dolan’s last movements. They found evidence he was a bar all night and they even had a recording from the bar that showed Dolan was there when Cade LaSalle died. The guys even presented Dolan with what they found. They thought it could persuade into revealing who ordered him to give false information and instead Dolan remained silent.
The man simply refused to talk to him. Not that it stops the laws of justice from turning. Dolan was later released by the police. They knew he had an alibi for the night in question and so they had to release him. It’s not like they could afford to hold onto an innocent man. Dolan was innocent after all and so that meant he lied for a reason. He didn’t do it for the attention because he didn’t like talking to people about what happened. He also didn’t do it for money because Pride and LaSalle never found a trace of it.
Dolan seems to have been threatened into the false confession. The guys tried to offer him away. They told him they could protect him and again they were met with silence. Dolan didn’t want to talk to anyone. He drove away from the station of his own accord and he went right to the bridge. The guys had been following so they saw what he was going to do before he did it. They tried to stop him from jumping and unfortunately, Dolan did it anyways. He killed himself right in front of the agents.
Dolan’s ultimate death was also a blow to their case. They still didn’t know who threatened Dolan and they had no idea if he had even reached out to this man behind the curtain. The guys were forced to start all over with their investigation. They first checked out Dolan’s life and they came across his skittish girlfriend. LaSalle decided to take pity on her because he saw how scared she was. He, therefore, brought her along with him and Pride when they again followed Dolan’s last movements and she went with them as they walked right into a gunfight.
Pride and LaSalle had been split up. They tried to cover more ground that way as they waited for Sebastian to join them and, unfortunately, LaSalle was so busy protecting Dolan’s girlfriend (who should have done as she was told and stay in the car), that LaSalle took several bullets to the upper mast. He was in such bad shape that he was rushed to the best hospital in the area. Pride had wanted LaSalle to have that. He thought if LaSalle had the best that he would survive and sadly there was nothing the doctors could have done.
They tried to save LaSalle. It was LaSalle that didn’t want to be saved. His last words on this earth were that he wanted to go fishing with his brother Cade and he flatlined right afterward. LaSalle had lost so much that he couldn’t stay tethered to the world. He let go and sadly he died. His friends had been with him at the end. They stayed when he was pronounced dead and they were transferring him back to New Orleans where Dr. Wade could give him a proper autopsy. The doctor like everyone else had wanted to get justice for LaSalle.
The team also knew they had to question the girlfriend. Sue-Ann Hughes showed up at Dolan’s apartment very conveniently and she also helped lead LaSalle back to the cabin where he was killed. Then there was what Patton found. Or what he didn’t find. He found no digital footprint of any relationship between Sue-Ann and Dolan. They didn’t even seem to know each other and so Pride later questioned her about this supposed relationship. He needed to know why there was no evidence of a relationship and lucky for her that’s when her dad showed up.
Sue-Ann’s father explained everything. He said his daughter was in an abusive relationship with a guy named Cameron Jones and that she had to keep her relationship with Dolan secret or else it might anger her ex. What he said even panned out. There was an abusive ex and Sue-Ann has a restraining order against. There was just one problem with Edward Barrett’s story and it’s the fact he wasn’t Sue-Ann’s father. Her father wasn’t in the picture. Barrett also didn’t have kids and his DNA was found under LaSalle’s nails.
LaSalle made sure to grab DNA while he barely holding onto life. He led them to Edward Barrett and Pride later blamed himself for Barrett getting away. Barrett paid Sue-Anne’s bill in cash. He also moved her out of the hospital as fast as possible and so it was up to Patton to track him down. Patton also found out a bunch of things while he was at it. Barrett was an orphan who grew up in the system and he was known for violence from an early age. He was known to be clever and so it was suspicious with how easy it was for the team to find him.
Barrett didn’t even offer a fight. He even talked Sue-Ann from getting killed and she put her gun down on his say so. She was completely under his thrall. She surprisingly fell for his line as well. He told her that this wasn’t over and she believed him.
But with Barrett’s arrest, the team were finally able to lay LaSalle to rest and they threw him a big party New Orleans style
