Join Keith for another installment of the Retro OTRDiary, and a return to the first season of Dragnet.
Joe Friday enters the crime lab for a dose of CSI… 1949 style. A lot of the practices still hold up in today’s style of investigation. Can you spot areas where science has advanced? With the brutal murder as motivation, Joe heads out to find out who knew Helen, and who would want her dead.
Everyone loved Helen… right? The string of characters seem to lead no where. Back in the war room with Chief Backstrand, it’s Joe who seems to be the emotional one, rather than the deep voiced chief. How is the investigation going so far? Frustrations are redirected as Joe and Ben hit the streets in their patrol car.
A call to respond to domestic violence turnso out to uncover a prime suspect. Is the man tied into the Helen Corday murder as well. With only circumstantial evidence to go on, HJoe turns up the heat in the interrogation room. The dramatic confession clenches the case for Joe Friday.
