Stevie is a police reporter, so called because he hangs around police stations for his stories. Tonight he is the best reporter in the world because he's got the kind of story that is only given to one writer in a thousand once in a lifetime.
This story begins with the end of a man's life. Yesterday an old man living alone with his five cats on an abandoned barge under the Brooklyn bridge cut off the heads of four of his cats then expertly slit his own throat from ear to ear. When they go to investigate Stevie notices a snowman outside but this is no ordinary snowman it is a beautifully sculptured head of a woman.
