Daniel Sims, an accountant, had been hired by Senator Rhodes as the African Famine Welfare Administrator, charged with managing the $60 million that had been raised by the Senate Famine Aid Committee for famine relief in Africa. Instead, however, Sims stole the money and flew to the Virgin Islands with $60 million in diamonds. Extremely nervous and fearful that he was being followed, Sims had intended to complete a transaction with Jack Catlin, an unethical mercenary and casino owner, but Catlin killed Sims, shooting him through the left eye. Catlin claimed the diamonds for himself, but MacGyver and the Senator's daughter were able to steal the diamonds back and return them to famine relief.
