Storyline

At a civilian hospital an ambulance ignites and explodes just after picking up the body said to be that of a Marine lance corporal who died due to a car wreck; Gibbs and company investigate. Gibbs and Abby say that the fire was not an accident, and Ducky says that the body is not that of the Marine. The team learn about a fight. Abby raises a theory. The victim's father tells Gibbs about several matters. Ducky and Abby continue to work, and Gibbs, on his own initiative, lends a hand by delivering an evidence bag from Ducky to Abby, who concludes that the body is that of the victim. The director decides to end their investigation and to turn over the case to the Maryland arson authorities. Written by DocRushing
