Mayhem on a Cross

Recap Image

Air Date 4/16/09


An abandoned power plant in Norway houses an ILLEGAL BLACK METAL CONCERT. Inside, sparks fly, music assaults the senses, Zombies rock out. A skeleton fastened to a gothic cross hangs above the stage. Without warning, a Delta Unit bursts in and makes way for DR. SOLBERG, a kind of Norwegian Brennan, to get a closer look at the skeleton. She confirms it's human and American. The Norwegians want no part of this and send it back where it came from.

At the lab, CAM explains that the victim's skeleton was used as a stage prop. It was stolen from an American Death metal band in DC six months ago and brought to Norway. BRENNAN deduces that the skeleton belongs to a teenage male. CLARK EDISON notes there is staining on the skull. The victim's ribs have been severed at the spine and spread to resemble wings. Brennan reports that this is known as the Blood Eagle. Fortunately, this ancient form of torture occurred post-mortem. One question remains: is this murder or a grave robbery?
