A dying boatswain's mate, 26, staggers into a woodland; Gibbs and company investigate. The victim has just become involved in a single-car crash; however, his car bears evidence of gunfire directed at the car, and his body bears injuries apparently from both a recent beating and previous ones. The gang visit the victim's home, where three members of the neighborhood watch provide some helpful information. Abby identifies a person of interest, who unexpectedly shows up at the bullpen, and who tells about the activities of an underground fight club. Abby then identifies a car of interest, so Gibbs chats with the owner and her husband-lawyer, who runs but goes to the home of the victim, where the gang find him dead. McGee discovers the business underlying the murders, and the team put all the pieces together. Written by DocRushing
