Desert town sheriff Combs shows the CSi team the corpse of a man raised there, who returned after founding a business in Texas to hunt for the lost loot of a bank robbery 25 years ago. As a kid, he and a local mate survived finding the cash hidden in 'their' play shed, where one of the two robbers bled to death. The third boy went missing, presumed killed and dumped in Lake Mead, but was never found. CSI teams up with local ex-cop Sam Bishop, who never ceased documenting and studying the case. Together, they find the site where the missing boy was buried and the recent murder weapon, a priceless antique Persian stone statue. A partial fingerprint of a rare type helps reconstruct the gruesome succession of crimes. Written by KGF Vissers
