In the last of the 90-minute Sunday Mystery Movie episodes (this was aired in the Friday time slot), a crook frantically steals the bones of a long-dead football player from a construction site. But he misses a femur, and it was hit by a pistol slug. The next day, the thigh bone is discovered and turned over to Quincy and a group of medical students.
