A group of young treasure hunters come to Cabot Cove looking for sunken treasure and one of them ends up dead.
This marks the second time Leslie Nielsen guest-starred. The first was in season 1 episode 13 where he played the captain of the cruise ship Jessica and her niece were on.
As Jessica is talking to David on the boat about her relatives, it is revealed that she also has sisters.
Victim: Alexandra Bell
Killer: Susan Ainsley
Cause of death: Blunt force trauma from tire iron.
Motive: Alex repeatedly belittled her and treated her as an "outsider" and as Bill Ainsley's "trophy wife."
The whole story was for David to have his divers to search for the treasure, why would he halt or stop the search to kill one of them ?
Then with how drunk Alex was, you tell me how she was able to remember the motel number, much less Susan's room number ?
