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

(at around 3 mins) Hodgins talks about the legend of Blackbeard's "money pit" on Assateague Island. The legend of Blackbeard's "money pit" places it on Oak Island in the Mahone Bay in the Canadian Provence of Nova Scotia, approximately 1200 miles north of Assateague Island. Also while it is possible that Blackbeard could have visited Assateague Island there is no know proof; unlike Ocracoke Island which is approximately 300 miles south of Assateague along the coast and is located at the southern end of the barrier islands know as The Outer Banks of North Carolina.
