Storyline

Looking for missing six year-old Charles Gregory Sanders, Zach's equipment finds in a suburban youth party field the badly degraded corpse of the barely four days dead boy. Autopsy, hard to do objectively on such a young kid, shows Charlie was drugged. Golden spoon-mother Margaret Sanders divorced Charlie's dad before his birth and has two teenage foster sons, brothers David and Shawn Cook. Booth quickly gains their confidence and guesses right David dated his girl-friend Leila at the mall and left younger Shawn with a friend in the park. Mall security recordings show unattended Charlie went to someone calling him. A hereditary bone defect proves Margeret isn't Charlie's biological mother, she illegally kept baby Nathan Downey from OD's junkie Janine, Booth arrests her for kidnapping. Video enhancement shows Charlie was killed by Shawn, who was abused by his dad. Bones shows atypical empathy for foster kids, due to her personal experience, which proves crucially useful after the ... Written by KGF Vissers

Daed boy
24 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B investigate the death of a young boy who disappeared from a mall and whose body turns up in a nearby field. It takes a bit, but the team realizes he was crushed to death in some manner they have trouble understanding. Then it's a case of figuring out who grabbed the kid from the mall. The killer is given away early, unfortunately. The twist to the episode is that the boy came from a family with a single mom and two other boys -- all of them foster kids. And this has a serious bearing on the case, as Dr. Brennan intuits. She reveals quite a surprise to Booth near the end. A very depressing episode. A nice touch at the end had the boss telling one of the team, who is thinking of quitting, how valuable her job is to the team.
