Bones: The Boy in the Shroud

Brennan and Hodgins join Booth and Cam at a crime scene beside an overturned garbage truck. Among the trash in the truck is the body of a young man wrapped in a shroud. Brennan finds that his skull is cracked and his leg is broken, and Hodgins determines the victim has been in the trash heap for at least three weeks. At the lab, Angela is able to identify the body from a facial imprint created by the shroud. As Booth and Brennan try to unravel the limited clues of the case, the parents of the deceased boy point a suspicious finger at their sons young girlfriend, Kelly, a product of the foster system. Brennan takes her team members rush to judgment and criticism of Kelly to heart since shes a product of the foster system as well. When Kelly confesses to the murder of her boyfriend, Brennan and Booth dont buy it, but are shocked and disheartened to discover who the real murderer is. Meanwhile, things get tense when Brennan and Cam butt heads over their different work styles and Brennan recoils at Cams power plays. When a disagreement comes to a head, Cam threatens to start looking for Brennans replacement, even if it means losing the whole Jeffersonian team if theyre forced to take sides.

Angela: I'm sure you're all familiar with the Shroud of Turin.

The Shroud of Turin is an ancient burial cloth bearing the image of a man who some believe to be Jesus Christ because the man in the image has some of the injuries that Christ was suppose to have. Most believe it is a hoax. A Bishop from medieval times wrote the Pope saying he had personal knowledge it was a forgery. Also, radiocarbon testing has its age during medieval times.
