     A body is found in a car in an abandoned parking lot on federal land, necessitating the FBI and the Jeffersonian to investigate.  Based on the state of desiccated tissue, Saroyan puts time of death at 5 to 7 days ago.  Brennan notes that the body decomposed in two different ways, owing to microclimates in the car.  (At the lab, Hodgins notes the presence of Necrobia rufipes from cool, dry climates and cheese skippers from hot, humid climates. The microclimates are never mentioned again.)  Booth discovers a sawed-off shotgun in the trunk of the car.  The victim was shot at least twice; bullets shattered the right fifth and sixth ribs, but the slugs were gouged out of the car upholstery so they couldn't be traced.   "Did you notice, Mr. Jursic, that the pelvis on this skeleton is completely upside down? I didn't, but then again, I'm only the best forensic anthropologist in the world." At the Jeffersonian, Saroyan introduces Andrew Jursic, a documentary film maker who is shooting a promotional video for the Jeffersonian.  Saroyan instructs everyone to let him film anything he wants, because that's totally ok to do with ongoing forensic investigations.  She starts dissecting the stomach tissue and finds a balloon full of diamonds inside, which Hodgins estimates as being worth $200,000.  In order to get a facial reconstruction from the partially decomposed tissue, Saroyan attempts to rehydrate it with diluted maceration fluid and radiant heat.  This magically makes the tissue remodel like a shrinky-dink in reverse.   Angela creates a facial reconstruction from the reconstructed face and gets a hit - Quentin Coles, a security guard for Oscar Schultz diamonds.  When Booth investigates, he realizes that Coles was actually undercover cop Detective Ruben Martin, working under DC Metro cop Commander Joe Dinco.  Martin was closing in on a two-person crew that was hitting up ATMs around town, and had already made out with $1.5 million.  Dinco assumed that the ATM thieves were laundering the cash by buying diamonds.   Brennan and Edison, who is brought in by Jursic to make the forensic anthropology department seem more likeable, further examine the remains.  Martin had extensive remodeled, antemortem fractures that occurred between two and five years ago.  The injuries to the ribs and the ulna, however, are perimortem.  Directionality of the bone splinters suggests that Martin was hit twice in his torso and one in his ulna; the latter is a glancing blow and was made with a small caliber bullet, whereas the former were made with a large-caliber bullet.  Particulates from the glancing blow lead Booth and Brennan to the Benjamin Banneker Memorial Bridge, where peregrine falcons roost, whose feces were found in Martin's ulna wound.  Brennan finds a severed foot.  From the distal fibula and a histological analysis of the osteons, she thinks that the foot belonged to a Caucasian female in her early 20s.  The level of decay places time of dismemberment at about 6 days ago.  Foreign bodies in the foot suggest buckshot from Martin's shotgun.  Booth, meanwhile, talks to Lauren Martin, Ruben's wife, and she insists that Dinco is at fault -- he always got raises, Martin never did.   Angela pulls footage from the ATM robberies to attempt to find the suspects, which she does in a matter of minutes (and which the FBI couldn't do in days' worth of work).  The robbers remotely hacked the ATMs to spit out cash when a certain card was inserted.  Angela traces the card's root code to a server at Carlisle University, and to Paula Byrne and Marcos Herrera, cyber-criminology majors there.  Brennan and Booth head to the house they shared, and they find Paula confined to bed, with gangrene taking over her leg owing to lack of medical attention for her dismembered foot.  Booth tortures information out of Paula, who claims they were meeting the diamond fence under the bridge.  The fence held them up with a shotgun, but Marcos freaked out and shot the guy, who in return shot Paula in the foot and left.    Edison finds out that the striations on the injuries to Martin's ribs suggest the shots were fired by a .38-caliber bullet, the kind fired by weapons issued by the DC police force.  Martin was shot at close range, by someone sitting next to him, someone he didn't have a reason to fear.  Booth's APB gets him information on the whereabouts of Marcos Herrera, and when he arrives at the scene, he finds Dinco threatening Herrera, telling him not to talk.  Booth questions Dinco, who lawyers up.  He also questions Herrera, who admits to robbing the ATMs but corroborates Paula's story about the fence shooting her.   Gunpowder and other particulates found in the rib fractures are further analyzed by Hodgins.  He also finds leather particulates and aerosolized alcohol mixed with jasmine.  Martin didn't have any leather on his clothing or in his car.  Booth gets a warrant to search Martin's house and finds his DC police-issued gun and a huge wad of money in his home safe.  He realizes that Lauren Martin shot her husband with his own gun, through the leather of her purse.  The bullet broke her bottle of perfume along the way.  Martin stole the diamonds for his wife, which she wanted, but she didn't want her husband anymore, so she admits to having killed him.
