- "So the pipe missing from Mr. Black's heater is the same one that killed him."

During Adrian Black's attempt to fake his death, he took an InstaHeat radiator pipe from his home water heater. Taking the pipe to the Pacific Electric Railyard, along with his car, wallet and pair of old glasses, Adrian covered the inside of the car and pipe with blood from a pig in order to trick people into thinking he was murdered.
As the LAPD investigated Black's disappearance, Detective Phelps discovered that the pipe belonged to the home water heater. Furthermore, forensic analysis confirmed that the blood was in fact not human, closely matching swine.
