The team investigates when a homeowner working in his garden finds a skeleton. The pathologist dates the death to 1967 and says it was definitely a murder. The current owners of the house have only been there for a relatively short time and it had been left derelict for many years. The police uncover a connection with Daniel Lennon who, 40 years ago, had killed his parents and was sent to a secure psychiatric institution from which he has only recently escaped. It is apparent that Lennon is familiar with the house and may have lived there at the time of the killing. Meanwhile, Boyd and Grace Foley have a row and she walks out. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


It's entirely reasonable to have tracked the cyber-cafe by it's IP address and the person who posted an email from there by his login name on the gardening system. It's utterly un-necessary to have someone state that the posting came from the cyber cafe without explaining how, then to state that the IP address identified the person who sent the mail.

Dr. Eve Lockhart: [Eve has exhumed a body that has been found in a back garden in suspicious circumstances and is thought to have been buried there forty years ago. She has taken it to the laboratory to examine it but Boyd doesn't think the Cold Case Squad should be investigating the case] Ah, if it doesn't work out, we could always send him to the dog-food factory like all the others.
Detective Superintendent Peter Boyd: I'm all for helping starving dogs.
Dr. Eve Lockhart: I'll take that as yes then.
