Storyline

While fixing a burst water main, a city works crew digs up the back yard of the home of the Johnsons - father Charles, mother Tina, and their middle aged son Lyle - upon Tina's approval. The Johnsons have lived at the house for thirty-five years. The crew finds the skeletons of two human bodies buried in the yard. The BAU takes the three members of the Johnson family in for questioning, who they believe know something about the skeletons, primarily because Lyle ran when he saw the authorities at the house. While Hotch, JJ, Morgan, Rossi and Cruz question the Johnsons individually, Lyle initially comes across as the most guilty by his animosity, however the team eventually believes his attitude is more a facade hiding other issues. Charles also demonstrates a more reserved form of animosity, he being a history buff who continually implies how he and his family, as being black, have been persecuted, this situation being no different.

I hated this episode
22 November 2013 | by (Norwich CT) – See all my reviews

We need to find justice for the 6 white men who castrate and hang an innocent man but there is no justice for the victim of this disgusting crime that was perpetrated? "I will keep your secret" ???? This episode is everything that is wrong with TV. I am not "holier than thou" but I missed the "justice" for the inconsistency in the victimology in this episode.

This was a terrible episode. I understand that murder is wrong however the evil that was done to this man...is ....HORRIBLE. To ask this man to "rise above" the humiliation and anger that he must have felt is in and of itself a tragic and demeaning.
