Later Ellie told Dormer she had found that Kay had a full collection of books by local author [[Walter Finch]], who had signed some of Kay's copies. Dormer had her look into it. She was working late at the office when she found a newspaper telling of Dormer's trouble with [[internal affairs]]. The next morning she met Dormer at the Lodge and told him Walter Finch was being brought in for questioning. She was present at his interview, where he told about his relationship with Kay. She watched as Finch told them Randy Stetz had a handgun, and Dormer got aggressive with Finch.

The next morning she met Dormer at the Lodge and told him Walter Finch was being brought in for questioning. She was present at his interview, where he told about his relationship with Kay. She watched as Finch told them Randy Stetz had a handgun, and Dormer got aggressive with Finch.
 
Randy Stetz was then arrested for Kay's murder, and Ellie drove back out to the beach where Eckhart was killed. She looked around and found a spent 9mm gun casing in the rocks. She then went back to her case study from her training and saw that Dormer's backup weapon was a Walther 9mm. She approached Dormer and the other officers at a bar and told them about it, but they wouldn't listen and Dormer told her the case was closed. She followed him outside, gave him a hug and felt the presence of his Walther in his trousers.
 
 
That night she waited at Dormer's hotel with the shell casing, wondering what to do. The next morning she drove to Finch's summer house at [[Lake Kgun]] to pick up his letters from Kay. She arrived, and as Finch went through his drawers she saw Kay's red dress. She went to draw her gun but was knocked out by Finch. She awoke to hear a scuffle between Finch and Dormer, so she climbed out of a window and into the cabin to see Finch beating Will. She drew a gun and Finch escaped, and she questioned Dormer about his shooting of Hap. Dormer explained that he wasn't sure if it was accidental or not, but at that moment Finch began firing at them with a shotgun.
 
 
She gave Dormer his weapon back, but he gave it to her telling her to give him cover fire as he crept up on Finch through the water. Dormer killed Finch, but was shot, and collapsed outside the cabin. Ellie went to help him, and offered to get rid of the evidence that he killed Hap. However, Dormer told her not to as he didn't want her to lose her way the he did. He died in her arms, asking her to "let him sleep".
