Criminals having murdered another prisoner while in jail have taken a key from the dead man to a chest in the possession of his curmudgeonly aunt who has the other key needed to open the chest in which are the proceeds from a bank heist. The chest is in the attic of a cottage the aunt has rented for the last two years but this year other people are on ther way for the summer.

This is a classic example of how good CBSRMT can be. I think the best episodes always seem to have a little element of the supernatural in them.

A pretty good supernatural tale. I'm just surprised that E.G. didn't make a quip about possession being 9/10 of the law.
