After hurricane Katrina, Bones spends her free days in devastated New Orleans helping to identify unearthed corpses, but wakes up in a puddle of blood with amnesia about a whole day, after a dinner with black orderly Sam Potter, a voodoo practitioner. Booth flies to her rescue; they find the "gris-gris", a chicken leg-preparation made by the black voodoo practiced by the evil red sect, found in the mouth of John Doe 361, whose X-rays she had sent to the Smithsonian (where Zack concludes he was murdered by bullet and/or crushing), was purchased from the last supplier by Dr. Grahama Legiere, whom she was helping. Then they find Legiere murdered bloodily. The unamused local police arrests Bones, Booth gets a local prosecutor to defend her. Soon more voodoo corpses appear... Written by
