The kidnapping of a famous atheist goes wrong, with the victim and one of the kidnappers dead and his accomplices gone with the gold coins. But Goren is no dumbbell when it comes to cracking the case. This time we look at Criminal Intent season 4 episode 5 "Eosphoros" with Katie from the Date with Dateline podcast.

The TV episode's name comes from the Greek god of the morning star, the brother to god of the evening star, Hesporos. The episode was inspired by the kidnapping and murder of Madalyn Murray O'Hair.
