Synopsis

Cassandra Dumont was on her way to the top and she was willing to step on a few toes to get there. In fact, half the people in the city had a limp. As co-anchor of the Six o'clock News, at television station KDOA, she had made enough enemies to fill a phone book. So it was no big surprise when somebody decided to cancel her ticket. Everybody who knew her had a motive. Tune in and find out for yourself that there's No Crime Like the Present.
