In Clarksburg, West Virginia, a dumpster diver finds a severed right leg, apparently from a Marine; Gibbs and company investigate; Ducky estimates that the leg was still attached to a live person not more than 24 hours earlier. The leg contains a titanium replacement ankle, traced to a Marine, aged 22, who, according to a death certificate, died two years previously; that person was said to have died of a heart attack, yet no autopsy took place, and the nearest relative caused the body to be cremated. Abby makes major contributions to the solution of the crime. The team figure it out, and they get a confession. Tony expresses interest in tattoos. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


Mark Harmon and Bonnie Bartlett (Dr. Sylvia Chalmers) previously worked together on St. Elsewhere. See more »


Dr. Sylvia Chalmers was recalling the incident where Dorn collapsed in her office and she had called for the ambulance, She said there was only 1 ambulance for the county since it was a small county. However she stated that the ambulance was in Turtle Creek, WV, handling a car wreck. She is incorrect since Turtle Creek, WV is in Boone County and Harmony, WV is in Roane County which is on the opposite side of Kanawha County. This should have made the ambulance for Roane County available. Or they could have called an ambulance from Kanawha County. See more »
