Episode Summary

AIRED:

A decomposing body is found in a pond, and a tent is found in the nearby woods. Dr. G performs the autopsy in the morgue's decomposition room, but finds few clues other than fingerprints, and mouthwash in the stomach. A wallet containing identification is found in the tent, and the fingerprints confirm the identity of the victim. According to the 39-year-old man's friends, he had a drinking problem. Had the man been consuming mouthwash to get drunk, and did this play a role in his death?

After a panicked babysitter's 911 call, a 17-month-old baby is found unconscious. The baby dies on the way to the hospital. Dr. G finds evidence that the baby was asphyxiated, and the babysitter claims that the child's neck was pinned between a bed frame and a playpen in a freak accident. Dr. G sends field investigators to the babysitter's house to re-create the incident so she can compare the babysitter's story to her autopsy findings. Will the re-creation confirm the babysitter's story, or will it indicate that she may be guilty of murder?

A 52-year-old English tourist has a heated argument with his family and walks back to his hotel. On his way back, he collapses on the sidewalk. Dr. G's autopsy confirms that he died of a heart attack, but his family worries that the stress from the argument may have played a role in his death.moreless

    In the first case a homeless man is found dead in a pond. After investigators check his campsite his body is taken to Dr. G's. During his autopsy Dr. G finds his stomach is full of mouthwash, typically a way for someone to get drunk if they don't have other alcohol. The man probably fell into the pond and drowned.



    In the second case a toddler is found pinned between a metal spring on top of his playpen and his playpen top rail causing suffocation. A tub of toys is turned over. The boy was overactive and the sitter and his mother had devised a way to keep the active child in his playpen by putting the metal spring on top of his playpen. In a reenactment the the sitter explains how she found the child which matches up to Dr. G's autopsy who rules the sitter did nothing wrong.



    In the third case a man from Great Britian has a bad temper. He had been upset about the price of a cola. He decides to walk the nine miles back to the hotel but he dies on the way. Dr. G rules heart disease the culprit for the 52 year old man's death.moreless
