Reporting in from London, Orson Wells takes us on another tour through the Black Museum. Today’s featured exhibit is an ordinary pair of women’s eyeglasses. How did this typical household item end up in Scotland Yard’s museum of death?
A worried mom is upset when she gets a letter from her daughter Daisy. Another note tells of how Daisy has been missing for a few days from her chicken farm. The cops turn up evidence that the grieving future husband may not be so upset afterall. What else will the police turn up as they interview neighbors and folks related to the missing woman? Where was she last seen? Who else might be suspected in the yet unproved fowl play? A suitcase, and her eyeglasses are found among the chicken coupes, and it offers a significant clue.
Her death is made to appear as a suicide, but the evidence is far from fitting together to make sense. Daisy was due to be married in a few days, and a bride to be isn’t likely to kill herself. Or so the cops say. Medical evidence points to her being dead before she was strung up.
Plod along with Orson, and the cops to dig up more clues and see how everything comes together to nab their bad guy. In epilog Orson tells a little about the aftermath of the courtroom decision.
