The Boy in the Shroud 

When a tractor-trailer collides with a garbage truck, the skeleton of a 17-year old boy is found in the trash. A facial imprint from a shroud that wrapped the body helps identify the victim as a suburban honor student.

An adolescent's corpse is found, decomposed but wrapped in a shroud and with a rose, in a Dumpster. It's identified as Dylan Crane, an honor student from a good suburban home who went missing three weeks earlier with his girlfriend, Kelly Morris, who is in foster care. Dylan died from a high fall. His parents assure the gang he wasn't suicidal, but admit they forbade his relationship with Kelly. Conversely, Morris's parents thought Dylan a good influence on her-- encouraging her to return to school--and their younger son, Alex. Food traces on Dylan suggest a Russian restaurant. Social workers Kevin and Fran Duncan show the squat warehouse where they saw the couple; a kid running away in Dylan's sweatshirt calls Kevin Duncan a pervert, he has a record. Brennan, once in foster-care, learns that experience shaped her inability to trust people, and remains defensive of Kelly despite rust and nail polish traces on the pipe Dylan got a blow from. Young Alex took a bus alone to tell only ... Written by KGF Vissers

When booth asks how much they are going to need you can see the camera is behind some type of plexiglass. There appears to be a scratch right where his glasses are.

When he throws the garbage towards the camera it clearly hits the plexiglas before the scene ends. See more »

I choose Bones
13 July 2016 | by mitchrmpSee all my reviews

In this episode, a teenage boy's body is found and the team works to figure out who killed him. Cam and Brennan clash over how to handle the investigation. The fact that a foster child is involved makes things even more tense for Brennan. The story, as it usually does, goes through many twists and turns before the truth is finally revealed.

Booth let's Cam no in no uncertain terms that he is on Bones' side - all the way. The look on his face when he tells her where he stands his very well done. If looks could kill... I love the relationship between Booth and Bones. I don't think there is a strong bond out there...

This is a rare episode where it doesn't end with Booth and Bones, but with a rather surprising pair...(and Hodgins let's his feelings known to someone special!)
