The Busy Body is the fourth episode of Diagnosis Murder's second season which was first broadcast on October 7, 1994.

Plot Edit

While giving a tour to the hospital accreditation committee, Mark finds a murdered body and tries to keep the committee from seeing it. Solving the murder is problematic, as the body keeps disappearing and all of the suspects have alibis.

Summary Edit

After a birthday dinner with the boys - even Norman, who rushes off early to greet a hospital accreditation inspection trio- for Mark Sloan, he gets stuck in handcuffs used for a surprise stripper; alas Jack forgot to ask for the keys from Community General's old security agent McCreedy, who just got fired, replaced by Norman's new, show-piece security force, and lost the keys years ago anyway. Yet Mark has worse to hide from the inspectors: a murder victim which mysteriously appears without ID in the hospital pharmacy and disappears with the presumed murder weapon before Steve arrives. Luckily he's identified as lawyer Lorenzo P. Kotch by footage on TV; he was mixed up in motive-providing matters like a nasty divorce and a culinary business war, even the inspection chairwoman hates him. His corpse appears and disappears again and Mark thinks of another twist.
