Kidnapped and threatened with dynamite, bank manager forced to commit $360,000 robbery to save her daughter's life

CBS News

In November 2000, Michelle Renee, a bank manager, was held hostage with her 7-year-old daughter Breea and forced to rob the bank where she worked in Vista, California. Take a look behind the scenes at some evidence that helped investigators solve the case. 

In 2000, Renee was a single mom working as a bank branch manager. "48 Hours" contributor Tracy Smith asked her about her life at the time. 

"I was ... on that single mom grind, you know," said Renee. "I was running a bank and I had a career. I was loving where I was living. I really loved my job."
