Judy Moore
Marine Sgt. Roger Caine
Park Ranger Kett


A Marine sergeant dies, apparently from a fall, in the Shenandoah River State Park, near Bentonville, Virginia, while hiking with his wife and his best friend, another sergeant; Gibbs and company investigate. Ducky finds a wood-fiber fragment in the victim's scalp, Abby identifies it, and Gibbs interprets the identification. The victim used a videocamera, which McGee finds, and from which Abby recovers recent footage; she puts together what she calls a nature documentary with a riveting murder-mystery subplot with an alternate ending. McGee encounters leaves of three, and Gibbs and Kate find and chase a suspect. Gibbs and Kate take the widow and the best friend to different chat rooms, then to the same one. The team figure it out, and Kate adopts a pet. Written by DocRushing

Did You Know?


Abby uncharacteristically gets one wrong when she finds a splinter of "Northern White Ash" in a sailor found dead in Shenandoah National Park, and tells Gibbs, "Ash is not indigenous". Actually, it is. Fraxinus americana grows throughout Virginia, and is listed on the National Park Service's website as being one of the species of trees found in the forests of Shenandoah. Additionally, Shenandoah's website warns against bringing in non-native firewood, as it could contain the emerald ash borer beetle and endanger the park's ash trees. See more »


Agent Caitlin Todd: These are the last two people to have seen the Staff Sergeant alive: his best friend, and his wife. Do you think that either or both of them could have murdered the staff sergeant?
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: Well, it is kind of weird, a single guy hanging out with a married couple.
Special Agent Timothy McGee: I agree.
Agent Caitlin Todd: Why is that weird?
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: Well, because he's a single guy who hangs out with married people.
Agent Caitlin Todd: I do that all the time.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: Yeah, but you bring a date, right?
Agent Caitlin Todd: Not always.
