Later the “mummy” is taken to California where McCadden gets Dr. Ken Melrose (Austin Stoker) to examine it and student Peter Sharpe (Kevin Brophy) to X-ray it. The findings lead McCadden to organise a huge press conference but before that happens Peter reviews the x-rays and discover there are five crystals around the head of the “mummy.” Peter steals the crystals and makes new X-rays to cover up his theft. He sells four of the crystals to students who are unaware of their origin.
