A Fake Hold-Up Murder Plot

Episode 402 tells the story of a discontented wife and her young paramour, who set in motion a plan to stage a robbery to get money for a quick Reno divorce. The victim, her husband. Yeah, that didn’t work out so well. There are some intense personalities in this story and a lot of theatrics, including a murder victim testifying from beyond the grave.

The Trial of Miss Edith Colby, Girl Reporter

This episode tells a sordid little tale of a battle between a small-town female newspaper reporter and a politician who impugned her dignity by calling her a “red light woman.” When she brought a gun into the newsroom, the editor told her that if she was going to shoot the man, to do it before the paper went to press, as it would be good for sales. Yeah, that’s not going to end well.
