Silverfish said:
Illeana is an FBI agent consulting with the police, and she interviews Mrs Asher (Rebecca, I think), as part of a police investigation. They think Martin, one of her sons may be a serial killer, and the two talk about both of her sons, and nothing else.

There is also a female medical examiner, but I think she talks in one scene, to the police as a group, about the body of a male accident victim, who is not Martin, as previously thought. She isn't named in the credits anyway, although I thought I heard a reference to her name at some point.
