Storyline

An adolescent's corpse is found, decomposed but wrapped in a shroud and with a rose, in a Dumpster. It's identified as Dylan Crane, an honor student from a good suburban home who went missing three weeks earlier with his girlfriend, Kelly Morris, who is in foster care. Dylan died from a high fall. His parents assure the gang he wasn't suicidal, but admit they forbade his relationship with Kelly. Conversely, Morris's parents thought Dylan a good influence on her-- encouraging her to return to school--and their younger son, Alex. Food traces on Dylan suggest a Russian restaurant. Social workers Kevin and Fran Duncan show the squat warehouse where they saw the couple; a kid running away in Dylan's sweatshirt calls Kevin Duncan a pervert, he has a record. Brennan, once in foster-care, learns that experience shaped her inability to trust people, and remains defensive of Kelly despite rust and nail polish traces on the pipe Dylan got a blow from. Young Alex took a bus alone to tell only ... Written by KGF Vissers

They find a dead teen in a shroud in a dump and the search is on
13 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The boy is found dead. His rich parents blame the girlfriend he has, a girl from foster care. Tempest and Cam clash on what needs investigated next and the "squints" let Cam know where she stands.

Tempest still doesn't relate to people outside of forensics but she is beginning to understand some of it with Booth's help. Both of them have "baggage" which was set up last season and now I think we will see much more examination and overcoming of that baggage.

I love "Bones" for all the forensics stuff but also for the interplay between the characters. One new interplay has started, one that is interesting and bears watching.

There was a song at the end that I loved and I want to know what it was and if it's available on CD. Can anyone tell me?
