Grissom and his team are discouraged as they begin investigating the disappearance of a high school basketball star, Ryan Lansco, and his cheerleader girlfriend. Grissom's quip that the young lovers may have run off to Mexico is soon quashed by the discovery of drops of blood by Ryan's vacant parking spot at the school. After finding a letterman jacket and cheerleading sweater in the field house and a pool of Ryan's blood nearby, the team tries to determine what went awry.

Cultural References
Title: Fallen Idols

The title refers to the slang for a person who has gained stature by excelling in some regard, but, as a result of some event or act exposed to public view, has lost some or all of that stature. The usual nature of the act in question is often a matter of human foibles and frailty in the form, one way or another, of the so-called "Seven Deadly Sins": Hubris-arrogance-pride, greed, or other thing taken to excess.
