When a young woman's body is discovered stuffed in a shopping cart under a freeway, the CSIs investigate. They find that the woman's body is disfigured and starting to decompose, and her face is covered with gashes and scars, leading the team to believe that someone shoved her face into a fan. After seeing the rest of the contents of the cart: an expensive handbag, fashion magazines and a leather day planner, it is clear she was not homeless at all. Grissom expresses the belief that not only did someone want her dead, but "they wanted her ugly."
