Season SevenEdit

Raging Cannibal Edit

Ivan Sarnoff is first introduced as a suspect in the murders of three men connected to him and his club. For the first two murders the CSIs are working on they arrest his associate Greg Donner after he is confirmed to have been the one who killed Vince Koslov after Vince killed Andrew Brodsky. The evidence suggests that Ivan ordered the hits but Greg refuses to roll on his boss and he is arrested. When they find the body of Nathan Madden they also find Sarnoff’s fingerprint on his body and realize he killed him. Sarnoff however provides them the "real killer" Jason Weller and his testimony supposedly confirms it. Before leaving the police station Horatio confronts Ivan and claims he is going to get him.

He later attempted to have Andrei force Ryan to cover up the murder of Ian Warner through kidnapping Billy Gantry, Mark's son. This however fails as both killers are arrested for the murder and Andrei is killed by Horatio when he tries to kill Billy.
