NCIS (2004): S01E17 – The Truth is Out There


NCIS was originally broadcast between 23 September 2003 and 25 May 2004 on CBS.


During a rave party, the body of a petty officer falls through the ceiling. Preliminary investigation suggests that the petty officer was killed in the nearby parking lot, and was dressed after his death. Upon checking the victim’s room, evidence surfaces that he might have been taking financial bribes or someone else may have been blackmailing him. Gibbs suspects the victim’s co-workers of involvement in the death when their separate versions of events are too consistent. Forensic evidence links them to the scene, and they eventually confess that their coworker’s death was a result of a prank gone wrong. However, Gibbs believes that the petty officer’s death was more than just an accident.
