While apprehending and arresting three Navy enlisted men running an automotive chop shop (using tools stolen from a Navy motor pool), Gibbs, Tony, and Ziva unexpectedly find the severed head of an adult man on ice inside a cooler in the trunk of one of the stolen cars. Abby learns that the head is that of a Navy captain who died four months before in the Naval Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland; she also finds a problem with the cremated remains said to be those of the deceased. McGee determines the owner of the stolen car, then Tony, McGee, and Ziva discover major evidence. The furnace operator disappears, but the gang find him, and they figure out the whole thing.
Did You Know?
The last command of the dead captain was the fictional USS Manassas (CG-74), a guided-missile cruiser, from which his remains are to be spread at sea; however, no such ship exists, and no ship of the US Navy has ever borne the name of Manassas. See more

He's like the Hope Diamond. A valuable gem. But it comes with a curse.
