While Van Doren, Lois and Clark discuss the whereabouts of Fortune, Clark is searching the closet for secret doors and finds none. Just then, the receptionist Miss Bailey enters the president’s office. However, she doesn’t get a chance to say anything because she faints shortly aftrwards. When she awakens she says she saw Fortune outside her office door. Clark and Van Doren find Fortune where Miss Bailey had said, but he’s dead. Fortune has been murdered.
After Police Inspector Neally arrives, he orders that the Metropolis National Bank be closed for the day while the bank’s entire staff stays to answer some questions. The medical examiner tells Neally that Fortune apparently died from stab wounds to the heart less than an hour ago. Van Doren tells Neally about what happened up until Miss Bailey had fainted. Miss Bailey then says that she heard a knock. She had told the knocker to come in, but she got no response. When she saw Mr. Fortune on the floor, she immediately ran to Mr. Van Doren’s office to tell him about Fortune. It was then that she had fainted. Clark continues recounting how he and Van Doren had found Fortune.
