Marine Lance Corp. Abdul Bakr


A Marine lance corporal, of Arabic lineage, the Islamic faith, and the Sunni tradition, dies two blocks from his mosque, in Anacostia in Washington, DC; Gibbs and company investigate. The local imam is the father of the victim; he begs Ducky, through respect for the Muslim religion, not to cut into the body, so that his son "can find peace in Heaven". Ducky and Palmer use an alternate method, and they get "an unexpected turn of events"; Ziva and the imam agree that too many deaths have occurred. Abby finds a residue of the most deadly natural neurotoxin on the Earth; Tony catches a jackrabbit bound for Paradise. A reserve personnel officer gives a tip, then justice prevails.

Did You Know?


When the needle fragment is pulled from Lance Corporal Bakr's body by the MRI machine, Ducky says "turn off the power", goes in and plucks it from the bore with no apparent effort. Unless they are quenched in an emergency (in which case there would be at least a minute of loud hissing as the liquid helium keeping the electromagnet cold boiled off and they'd be evacuating the room as a precaution), the magnet component of an MRI machine is always "on" and pulling with the same force. It would require significant force to pull even a needle from the magnet's housing. Ducky might have the strength, but it would require visible strain on his part and likely be difficult to grip.
