Orson Wells walks us through a few of the exhibits in the Black Museum before stopping to feature today’s display. In England it’s customary to have bon fires through the land on November 5th. This year though one of the bon fires turned out to be a car that was set ablaze. Closer examination makes the discovery that there is a body inside the car.
The scraps of evidence get the cops started looking for the owner of the car, and there’s the matter of a man seen running from the scene. What’s that all about? What does the scant evidence at the blaze mean?
Mrs Williams comes forward, claiming the car was her husbands. Robert Williams is a man with secrets, which we learn more about as the case unfolds. It doesn’t take long before another Mrs Williams is found, then another and… would you believe a total of 4 and a half? With all those woman woes, did Robert Williams commit suicide in his car? Did his wives gang up on him to do away with him? Is there some other explanation? Evidence at the crime scene paints a different kind of picture. A clue comes in from that almost 5th wife, but have the cops found the real Robert? Can they piece together the on site clues to recreate the events of the crime?
How did the crime go down, and who was the burned up victim? Listen in to get all the clues from the drama, and the voiceover from Orson, and you’ll have it figured out as well.
