The casket in tonight's episode.
27 November 2014 | by chaufeurSee all my reviews

This episode revolved around an old killing that had happened decades before. They dug up the casket of a Jewish sailor that had been buried for 40 years. Jewish burials are done with wood caskets and no burial vaults, so the remains are returned to the earth as quickly as possible.

After 4 decades, the casket would have degraded, and there would be nothing but bones in the grave when opened.

"For dust you are and to dust you shall return."

This is a glaring mistake that should have been caught before the episode aired. I know the writers took some literary license, but...
