Grissom leads the team in the investigation of a murdered 3-year-old child found in a cardboard box near a parking lot. The child died from a severe blow to the head and had chemical burns on much of her body. Catherine Willows in particular takes the death quite hard and will stop at nothing to find the killer. When the box she was found in is traced to a registered sex offender, Willows ignores other evidence that calls his guilt into question. Written by

The bar-code that Grissom examines is not genuine. If you pause the episode at the right moment, you can clearly see the bar-code's text display the 'E-like' summation symbol as he examines it in Photoshop. No form of bar-code can display this symbol. The numbers on the bottom also change between the scanned-in image and the final image displayed. Grissom then proceeds to scan the printed bar-code with bar-code gun, into the shipping company's website. Not only is the idea that every consumer is expected to have a bar-code reader handy completely ludicrous, the site does not even seem to provide any method to upload the bar-code image. Furthermore, the bar-code itself seems to have been created with random lines instead of being generated as a real bar-code, as it does not conform to any bar-code standard. See more
