A human body, almost completely consumed, turns up in a burned-out bonfire on a beach near the US Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland, after celebrations just before graduation; Gibbs and company investigate; McGee's thumbprint scanner identifies the victim as Special Agent Lara Macy, on personal leave from her post in Marseille, France. Gibbs and McGee visit Lara's mother, who tells them that a man had already rifled through Lara's papers at the family house. Lara had begun to look into the rape of a woman petty officer from a visiting ship in Marseille; the gang continue to do so, and they find the rapists. Abby speaks with Gibbs frankly and empathetically. Gibbs and MAllison have an intense chat, Vance advises her to listen, and Gibbs goes to Mexico, where Franks has run into trouble.

Abby matches the bullet fragment to Gibb's rifle. Unless his rifle has been in storage all that time, not possible. In twenty years, it would have been re-issued to a stream of marine snipers, who would train with it or use it on deployment. The wear would change the rifling marks. In twenty years, it would probably have had a worn barrel replaced at least once, completely changing the rifling marks. See more
