Sherlock is badly beaten from his encounter with Shinwell. Watson asks him if his nightly female guests are his way of dealing with the beating. He denies it but can’t believe she is OK with the fact that they misjudged Shinwell so badly. The county morgue opens up on Monday morning and finds that someone broke in and used the crematorium to burn up a body. Sherlock and Watson take the case.

A review of the remaining bones indicates there were two bodies burned. There is also a ring and an orthopedic brace. Based on one of the teeth found Sherlock thinks one of the victims was a private detective he used to work with. It turns out Kirby and his assistant Fred are the victims. A search of their office indicates several clues. There is a fake id as a courthouse guard and several restraining orders against Kirby.

All of the orders are from the families of the victims who died in a court house shooting. Watson interviews a woman who had an order against Kirby. She said he was trying to get items from the victims’ families to sell as murderabilia (items related to famous killings). They all thought Kirby was harmless but they got orders against him because they didn’t want to deal with him. Sherlock finds out that several years ago Watson registered their company with the New York Private Investigator Association and he is livid. He thinks the agency is a disgrace.

Watson checks Kirby’s financials and doesn’t think he was a murderabilia dealer. Sherlock thinks he was involved in something much bigger. The four men killed in the court house may have been involved in sabotaging a nuclear reactor several years before they were killed. Sherlock and Watson go to a DNA expert who Kirby had wrote several checks to. He gives them the results. It turned out Kirby wasn’t looking for someone related to Chernobyl, he was conducting paternity tests.

Carter Gibson is the person who hired Kirby to try to find his father. His step-father was the shooter in the court house killings. Sherlock and the police head to his house and find no one home. The house is a mess as if there was a struggle. Also it turns out Carter wore a leg brake like the one found in the morgue. It is highly likely he was one of the victims found not Kirby.

The police find foot prints and several neighbors heard a loud bang the night Carter disappeared. Sherlock thinks a paper weight was used as the murder weapon. He also thinks that Carter’s disease, CMT, that caused him to need a leg brace, is a clue to who killed him. It is genetic and neither his mother nor the man who he thought was his father had the disease. His father shot up the court house because his mother worked there and he was trying to kill the man he thought was having an affair with his wife.

Sherlock realizes that Carter’s father was actually the man who ultimately stopped the shooter before he killed more people in the courthouse. That man’s son Jake, is a baseball player who was about to sign a big contract with a major league ball team. The team confronts him and think he killed Carter to keep him for telling the world he was his brother. He didn’t want anything to ruin his chances at a multi-million dollar contract. As he is about to confess his coach appears and confesses to both murders.

The team doesn’t believe he did it but he insists that he did. Watson is able to find the murder weapon in a dumpster and it has Jake’s finger prints all over it. When he is confronted he admits he killed both Kirby and Carter. It turns out the driver wasn’t killed.
