Ted Macys' corpse was found in Assateague island, a resort town near the National Park where Blackbeard's treasure is supposed to be buried but every pit floods. He was probably drowned and is found clasping a finger bone, 17th century, with tertiary syphilis. Archeologist Macy and his partner Giles Hardewicke lead the dig, funded by adventurer billionaire Branson Rose, personal protégé of mayor Frank Ney. Dr. Jack Hodgins insists on diving for soil samples in the 60 meter deep shaft which already killed a man and finds a probable pirate's corpse. Macy was probably killed after bringing up some treasure; the bones are stolen from the Smithsonian. Booth finds Hardewicke has blues, claiming the mayor kicked him after finding out Macy did his foxy wife. The pirate bones turn out to be stolen from the Jeffersonian and planted. The murderer uses the same spine-breaking Special Forces technique again. Written by
Did You Know?
When Bones is asking Hodges where he has gone cave diving, she asks if he has ever dived Naharon, and then remarks that she named Naharon. This would be appropriate to her character because that underwater cave was where "Eve of Naharon" was discovered. Dated at 13,600 year old, this female skeleton is the oldest human remains ever found in the Americas, as well as containing the oldest DNA yet extracted. See more
