Ducky and Jimmy face the challenge of the "meat puzzle" of concurrently reconstructing three cadavers dissected into many small pieces left in a barrel of alcohol in Bethesda; Ducky quickly identifies one body. More clues turn up, but the prime suspect is said to have died more than a year ago. The bodies are those of a DA, a judge, and a jury foreman in a macabre rape-murder case eight years ago. The suspect was a wannabe medical examiner, both his parents are morticians, and his brother is a taxidermist. While Tony sits with Ducky's mother, a delivery arrives; while Kate protects Ducky, he takes a ride. Eventually the team find not only Ducky but also lots of answers. Written by
