Or: Edward Burgess Found Shot to Death.
It doesn’t take long after the platoon of patrolmen are turned out, that Captain Canelli gets word of a dead body has been found. At first the patrolman thought he was just a drunk, sleeping it off. Springing into voiceover, Canelli orchestrates the matter.
Detectives are brought into the scene before clues grow cold. The body is taken to the morgue, identified, and next of kin notified. The son seems nervous. Did he know there were a couple of high dollar life insurance policies, naming him as beneficiary?
More lies are uncovered about where the son was, instead of being at work. A witness clears him, and the trail is followed to find the next likely suspect. Is he the one? The detectives won’t know until they get him.
