SEASON 3, EPISODE 315 - Jack and the team investigate the disappearance of Chelsea Prince, a 23-year-old society girl known for her constant partying and headline-grabbing escapades. Her badly beaten limousine driver recounts how the limo was ambushed and Chelsea was taken. The kidnappers create a website poll encouraging people to vote on whether Chelsea should live or die. The team begins its investigation while entertaining the idea that Chelsea may have orchestrated the kidnapping to obtain publicity. The preliminary suspects include the married owner of several popular Manhattan clubs who was enraged when he learned that Chelsea secretly made a sex tape of them together. Also, a disheveled young man had interrupted one of Chelsea's recent book signings, ranting that his sister killed herself because Chelsea ignored the girl's fan letters. Suspicions arise when the investigators discover the heiress begged her business manager for $100,000 the month ago. The pressure really mounts when the majority of poll participants vote for Chelsea to die.
