Poachers in a pelican reserve find a recently burned skeleton which is soon identified as USMC Special Ops Calvin Warren, discharged three years ago. Bones isn't pleased that her father, ex-science teacher Max, is employed in the museum to show kids around, although he does a great job. She gets him fired after he helps Hodgins and Brey with forensic experiments. Cal had a painkiller problem and was employed as a 'nanny'-bodyguard for CEO Richard King's kids, Royce and Alexa, at the exclusive Woodbury school. Upper class families prove interesting suspects. Booth worries if he's giving his boy Parker all possible advantages. Written by KGF Vissers
