To try and get more of an insight into both of the victims’ lives, NCIS wanted to speak to some of the people who they worked with.

One of which was April Ferris (Meredith Monroe) who was an engineer at Gen-1 Biotech Inc.

As well as a researcher, Clea was a chemical engineer and as the only two women working in the same field at the company, she shared a bond with April.

They had not been close but according to Clea’s journal, she wanted to be friends with April since they shared the same interests.

But April had another thing in mind for Clea as the team discovered.

Agent Gibbs (Mark Harmon) accused April of stealing Clea’s work as she was the better of the two of them and wanted more credit.

Agent Tony Dinozzo (Michael Weatherly) commented: “It’s a terrible thing, betraying someone’s trust like that”.

But to get rid of the problem for good, she decided to kill Clea as well as her boss who favoured her work rival.

At the end of the episode, April admitted what she had done and took out some of her frustrations on the company in her last moments of freedom, accusing everyone of fawning over Clea.

She was then taken away by NCIS for the murder of Clea and Martin Stillwell.

NCIS season 17 is available to watch on CBS.
