Eccentric heiress Elise Vogelsong's corpse is found burnt to a crisp, beyond positive identification, in her grand beach mansion, where none of the many valuables seems stolen, except a famous medal. Dr. Lance Reinhardt, who hides a dubious past, was treating her for early dementia, or helping someone fake that. Her cousin Curtis Wiley, an artist, was fighting for control over the family foundation, which mainly finances a veterans home, run by chaplain Johnny Griffin, from which a wife and volunteer, Lissie Calhoun, is missing. Rigsby meanwhile is depressed about Van Pelt having left, tries to follow Cho's advice to start dating but makes a mess of Internet appointments. Written by
