A woman's body is found down a very deep sewage shaft, largely devoured by rats; a homeless man rushes away in the dark. It was solo-documentary film-maker Marti Hunter, 24, whose fiancé Phil Garfield was used to her disappearing during work. Her footage on the tunnel system shows shelter social worker Helen Bronson with the fleeing black man, Harold Overmeyer, the 'mayor of moll town' among the tunnel dwellers. He gets arrested when they find Marni's camera and bloody clothes in his possession. He was a soldier but left when a kid was killed during a mission. Harold says that Marni died after he gave her something and warned her. Her skull was smashed in by a single blow with a sharp weapon, and she had a 19th century vault seal, used to store cultural and intrinsic treasures. Her fiancé knew she once was romantic with one of the climbers who taught her how to use their equipment. Diamond powder indicates that Marni was in a Civil war tunnel. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


David Denman, who plays the victim's fiancée, appeared several times as a demon named "Skip" in a story arc in seasons 3 & 4 with David Boreanaz in his previous show Angel (1999). See more »


Hodgins, in describing the head wound of the Civil War era tunnel skeleton, mentions bird shot "pellet size 12, 0.73 inches in diameter, made of lead". First, size 12 shot is .05 inches in diameter. Second, think of a 45 caliber bullet, a big honking bullet. It is 0.45 inches in diameter; that is what caliber means. A single piece of lead .73 inches in diameter (75 caliber) would completely fill the barrel of a large shotgun. See more »


Dr. Temperance Brennan: She knew about this treasure. She was going to put it in her documentary. It would have cost you guys a fortune. So one of you killed her. Who's left-handed?
[starts walking towards Kyle]
Special Agent Seeley Booth: Bones, you know it's best to have this sort of explanation after the bad guys are incapacitated.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: [turns to Booth] Why?
Kyle Montrose: [shoves Bones, grabs a candlestick and attacks Duke] You killed her for this?
[Bones knocks Kyle out]
Special Agent Seeley Booth: That's why.
Dr. Temperance Brennan: Yeah. Well, I'll try to remember that for next time.
