The story is introduced by Captain Bert Wallis Head of the homicide squad at the Los Angeles Police Department. You will hear dramatized the story of a perfect crime, which like all perfect crimes was a little imperfect. If the carefully laid plans of the criminal had worked perhaps he would have escaped. When a fire is reported at an apartment building a man and a woman are found dead in their bed. At first it looks like a murder and a suicide but then clues are discovered to suggest that this is a double murder and the murderers plan to cover his tracks have failed.
