A security guard finds the disemboweled body of an NCIS special agent, Chris Pacci, in an elevator; the Metro PD calls the NCIS to take the lead. Gibbs and the gang investigate; Gibbs feels much personal responsibility, for he had deferred giving the agent some help he had sought with a cold case (one involving a theft of more than $12M from the Navy). Ducky says that the killer first shot the victim in the neck and then cut him open inside the elevator. Co-workers shows irritability due to the involvement and the relationships, but they pick up where Chris left off; Tony uses a new technique for personal surveillance, and he gets a surprise. The gang find the thief and the killer. Written by
