Episode Summary

Needle in the Haystack
A 27-year-old mentally challenged man collapses while eating lunch and dies soon afterwards. The family believes he choked while unsupervised, and they wonder if they could have done something to save him. Dr. G hopes to answer their question with her autopsy, and ends up finding something she has never before seen in the history of her career. After disappearing for five days, a 45-year-old man is found decomposing in his unlocked apartment. Ten years earlier, he suffered a severe back injury while doing construction work and has suffered from chronic pain ever since. He was known to abuse alcohol. Syringes, prescription painkillers, and beer bottles were found in the man’s trashcan. Did the man intentionally take his own life? Dr. G must take this body to the “Decomp Room” to get to the bottom of the case.moreless
