While replacing a furnace at the DoD high school at the Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia, workers find a smoked and preserved body inside the chimney; Gibbs and company investigate. Ducky has trouble with the time of death, and Abby has trouble with the fingerprints. Tobias shows interest in the victim, who, he says, was a serial killer; Gibbs and Tobias make a deal; they visit the widow, and the gang execute a search warrant. Tony sees Jeanne again, and Abby sees Marty again. Marty helps Abby, who tells Gibbs, who tells Fornell. Gibbs and Fornell confront the real serial killer.
