Walk through the exhibits as Orson Wells shares something about them, before arriving at the straight razor that is key to today’s case. The Wilson’s own a pub, but when Mabel takes ill and doesn’t seem to get better, her mother comes to take care of her. Larry isn’t too keen on having his new mother in law around, but he does have a business to run. Both Larry and his mother in law are griefstricken at Mabel’s death, but the doctors can’t agree on the cause.
Since Larry has a past of having wives die off on him, doctors take the stance to pursue the possibility that Mabel died from poisoning. What will their questions turn up regarding the man and his past? There’s enough doubt about Larry to hold him until toxicologist reports come back, and it’s not looking good for Larry. The matter of his former wives deaths are brought to court as well, and the coincidences are hard to brush off as mere exhaustion.
What’s the deal with the straight razor? Larry had also been a barber, a connection that linked him to still more incriminating evidence. A series of murders that stopped when he left an area, and started when he moved into a place. Orson hints that the authorities may have caught up to Jack the Ripper without realizing it.
