A 'Whodunnit' Ends First Season
9 April 2008 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Who killed the man - the wife or her mother?

That's the question here as "Joe Friday" and "Bill Gannon" discover an apparent suicide is just that: apparent, not fact. The medical examiner discovers the bullet that was in the dead man's body did not come from the gun lying next to the man. Earlier in the day, Friday and Gannon had gone to the house and questioned both the man's wife and mother. Neither had a kind word to say about the deceased. The wife was separated from the husband and said he was a no-good drunk and her mother agreed. Gannon and Friday bought it, until the ME made them re-think the case.

Now, they had to find out who killed the man and how it was done. Since the door was locked from the inside and the windows were locked, how did the killer get out of the room? (Earlier, Friday had the break the window glass to get into the room.)

This "whodunnit" ended the brief first season, sorry to say. I'm hoping a second season will available on DVD sometime soon.
