Goren and Eames investigate the murder of a Doctor with an unusual medical theory regarding persons in a vegetative state, which helps them discover the killer.
The vegetative woman had stole from her company thousands of dollars and hid it in a fund, her husband knew this and so induced her state to earn all of it.
