Stargazer in a Puddle

Recap Image

Air Date 5/22/07

Brennan and Booth work their way through a partially flooded foundation. A DC cop at the crime scene informs them that there was a foot pursuit the night before, and the suspect tossed a knife into the muck. The cops have been draining the sludge to try to recover the weapon, and in the process found a small highly decomposed skeleton hanging out of a grocery cart. Brennan identifies it as a female, and, based on the pelvic girdle and skull, probably pre-adolescent. It appears to have been dead for several months. There's a gunshot wound to the back of the head, approximately a .22 caliber. And the victim's hand is wrapped around a small stone with a message on it reading, "I LOVE YOU." A small pencil-type case with a shooting star design is found near the body. Booth orders an FBI forensics team to search for bullet fragments.

Back at the lab, Hodgins and Angela discuss their upcoming wedding, as Hodgins works on analyzing crime scene evidence: the "I love you" stone, some scraps of clothing, some filthy water, a collection of marble-sized "moon and stars" which were found in the pencil case, and a bunch of dead fairy shrimp that were found in the mud beneath the remains. Brennan finds a stress mark on the victim's vertebrae. She was looking up at something.

Brennan's father, Max Keenan shows up. Booth arrests Max, a fugitive who was charged with killing the Deputy Director of the FBI.
