While walking through a forest, a forest ranger finds a stack of money believed to be the payoff for a hijacker who used a vial of anthrax to hijack a plane. He also finds the hijacker's skeleton in a tree. Unfortunately, he accidentally steps on the vial containing the spores. Quincy and Sam go to the town where the body was brought in to properly identify the remains. However, when the ranger dies from the disease and it now becomes a race against time to find the infected money before a major epidemic breaks out.

This story was based on the legend of D.B. Cooper, although his name was changed to R.W. Collins, and he has a vial of anthrax instead of bomb. However, Collins supposedly jumped off of a Boeing 707 which, because of the design of the plane, would not have worked. D.B. Cooper was able to jump off his plane because he was on a Boeing 727, and it had its stairway descent underneath the tail assembly. See more
Quincy's ruse to ask people to bring in their money because it's counterfeit wouldn't have worked. People know that counterfeit money can't be redeemed and people wouldn't willingly surrender their money. See more
