Booth: Sweets said I should call you. Something about the DNA?Cam: Is Sweets psychic now? I hadn’t even checked the results till this very second. But Dajan Radic is not your man.

Yet, the epithelium cells beneath the fingernails, that are much more likely the remains of the fight the witnesses reported about, are not his.

Any chain of evidence would have been shattered by the time these bones reached Dr. Brennan. They wouldn’t hold up in court, wouldn’t help a conviction in Den Hague.Dajan Radic: What are those two old men? Sure, we would love to see them pay personally, but we have hope that they will meet fair justice eventually. In the end however, we care more for the future.
