The crime scene was ominous: knives were missing from the kitchen and a section of carpet in her bedroom had been cut out and removed. Complete coverage: "48 Hours: NCIS" The investigation by NCIS would uncover a maze of evidence that included a jealous ex-girlfriend who had resurfaced; a lying but loyal Marine willing to help a wartime buddy; and a husband with a history of domestic violence.
