Detective Murdoch investigates the murder of Edgar Leeman who was shot by someone when he answered a knock at the door. His last words, overheard by his wife were 'I'm sorry no'. There's soon a second victim Thelma Green and then a third, Robert Grimsby. They have little in common except to have perhaps come into some unexpected money. When constables Crabtree and Higgins find a wallet with $10 inside, they return it to address they find inside. They soon after learn that several such wallets have been returned to that address and Murdoch concludes that the killer is punishing those who don't. Murdoch devises a new camera that takes a photo every four seconds and sets it it on the street to see who might be leaving the wallets. Written by garykmcd

A serial killer is on the loose
23 April 2015 | by ctyankee1See all my reviews

A number of people starting getting murdered and shot with the same gun. The police take pictures of the victims and go through a busy intersection where lots of people go shopping. The police show the pictures of the victims around. There is a pizza man selling pizza which is new to the area and Crabtree taste it and likes it. Later he tells Murdoch about it and Murdoch pronounces it as pizzzar something like that which is kind of funny.

A elderly lady sits on a bench in the area quite often and recognizes the pictures of the murdered victims and tells the police where they went when she saw them. Murdoch sets up a camera and to watch the area.

Police start to see that there is a connection between the murders and a dark wallet that is dropped with $10. in it. Many of these wallets are returned to a man that has a prayer group. It seems the people that were murdered found these wallets kept the money and did not give the money to the man at the prayer group establishment. Office Crabtree is used as bait to watch for a dropped wallet, pick it up and spend the contents.

As the story goes on a preacher is preaching on a corner. They portray the man as mean by his tone. This episode also portrays people that are in the ministry as hypocrites that gamble and are adulterers. I find no other group has such bias written against them accept those who believe in Jesus.

This is another were good people are made bad.
