16. Horatio Cane
Horatio Caine was a lieutenant in the Miami-Dade Police Department and headed the Crime Lab as well as being the day shift supervisor. His specialty was explosion evidence and arson. Before coming to that position Caine previously worked as a detective with the New York Police Department. He was a prior member of the bomb squad in Miami working with his mentor Al Humphreys who was accidentally killed when a bomb exploded.
Caine previously also worked undercover in Pensacola Florida where he dated a woman he knew as Julia Eberlie. Unknown to him the two of them had a son, but Caine was not aware of this until sixteen years later.
Caine killed the person who murdered his mother and that person was his own father. On another case Caine was stabbed while investigating a crime where the parents were murdered while the children were locked in a closet. The perpetrator held a grudge against Caine and kept some blood he had taken when Caine was stabbed. The perpetrator, Walter Resden, used this blood he had held for ten years to frame Caine for the murder of Rachel Turner, Caines girlfriend. The character of Horatio Caine was portrayed by David Caruso
