Strip Strangler is the twenty-third episode and the season one finale of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.


The team is investigating the ongoing murders by a signature killer who apparently has a pretty extensive knowledge of forensics and is able to not leave any evidence at the crime scenes. Grissom becomes angry when the sheriff invites the FBI to help out with the case. Sara Sidle offers to bait the killer, which upsets Gil even more.
