Using the cadaver of a John Doe, Ducky demonstrates an autopsy to a group of military officers; however, Ducky soon says that the death resulted from murder. Gibbs and company investigate; while making inquiries they meet a woman FBI agent, Courtney, who names the victim, Marvin, and says that he worked for the FBI.
