CBS yesterday released the full trailer of the upcoming CSI episode, "Compulsion".

When a serial killer strikes again, the CSIs dig up evidence from a prior killing in the hopes of using new technology to make a match. The fingerprint is linked to Jesse Acheson, who becomes the prime suspect in the case. Meanwhile, when a teen boy is found dead in his bedroom, the Las Vegas Police Department elicits a confession from his brother, but the evidence leads the CSIs in another direction.

The 20-second trailer for the episode is now available on the official CBS site. For those of you with slower connections, here's a transcript:
