Saturday, July 27 at 8:00 p.m.

From the last days of Germany's Third Reich to the Calf Creek culture of 3,000 B.C. to Union, New Jersey....the Detectives are on the case!

First, the show visits a Lewiston, New York, man who believes his shotgun may have belonged to Hermann Goering, Hitler's right-hand man. and was looted at the time of his arrest in 1945.

Then, an Oklahoma resident discovered an unusual bison skull while fossil hunting in a dry riverbed. Lodged in the bone was a handmade point, which the contributor believes dates back to the Calf Creek culture, around 3000 B.C. Could this be just another hoax or an incredible archeological discovery?

Finally, a New Jersey resident has heard a strange story about his home: that it was designed and built by inventor Thomas Edison. The Detectives investigate and discover a surprising story of technological innovation, failed inventions and an approach to housing that was 30 years ahead of its time.
