Doctor Weiss (first name unrevealed) is a recurring character on Criminal Minds.
Absolutely nothing is known about Weiss, other than she became a medical examiner in Virginia. She has shown members of the BAU the bodies of victims whenever they investigate cases conveniently located near Quantico.
Weiss shows Rossi the body of Strauss following her death at the hands of John Curtis. She verifies Strauss's cause of death and also reveals that there was a marking shaped like an 8 carved into her wrist. It is this marking that leads the BAU to decipher Curtis's workplace and narrow him down from the list of suspects.
Weiss briefly appeared in the episode, in which she shows Morgan and Reid the body of Gideon after he was murdered by Donnie Mallick. She also tells them the cause of Gideon's death (three gunshot wounds) and tells them he didn't suffer for long.
Weiss briefly reappeared, giving the BAU the autopsy for Eileen Banks, the victim of Miles Hendrick.
