Anglers catch a shark whose belly contains half the corps of a man who was shot. The team works out it was dumped from an abandoned yacht which contains a secret smuggling compartment for cocaine, but probably took aboard the victim and at least one relative, who also left a blood trace, both being Cubans trying to immigrate illegally. Anti-Castrist barrio patriarch Basilio helps Horatio's team work out the details.

The tiger shark that contained an entire arm and part of the torso of a hapless Cuban is in fact a sand tiger shark which has only been responsible for two (provoked) fatalities since records began. Also Delko says the shark will eat anything as long as it is alive, this is also inaccurate as tiger sharks are known to also eat carrion. See more
