On November 6, 1902, Mary Lawson was murdered as she lay in her own bed with a fish knife having the initials "W.W." on it. Although the boarder suspected of the crime had been out to the theater at the time the crime was committed, the police inspector believes another clue to the crime, a burned match, holds the identity to the real killer.
