Storyline

Artist Molly Weems shows up at Highway Patrol headquarters claiming that convicted "Sunrise Park Killer" George Crenshaw is innocent. When Dan Mathews confronts her with the many inconsistencies in her story, Molly admits that she was lying to try to save Crenshaw (her former fiancé) from execution. Surprisingly, an attempt is made on Molly's life after reporter Joe Macklin prematurely prints a story about her claims and includes her home address. Molly survives the attack, but Dan deduces that she may have unknowingly been correct about Crenshaw and that the real "Sunrise Park Killer" could still be at large. Dan stakes out Molly's home and eventually finds himself face to face with the pusillanimous killer. Written by Sam Spear
