Storyline

Widowed Joanne Kilbourn is an ex-police officer, whose deceased husband Ian was the Ontario provincial Attorney General when he was murdered. His murder was eventually solved six years after the incident. After a stint as a criminology professor, Joanne now works as the criminal and justice expert for a local television news show, and as a college professor of journalism. Her private life is going well as she has just started dating Tom Keaton, her famous journalism school colleague who has just released his second popular non-fiction book stemming from an incident when two troubled youths terrorized him. Joanne's world is turned upside down when the School of Journalism's Dean, Reed Gallagher, is found dead in a seedy motel room with a pair of pantyhose tied around his neck. Initially, the death is thought to be accidental auto-erotic asphyxiation. But, the police, led by Detective Alex Emanuel, do eventually believe his death to be murder. Alex doesn't like that ex-police officer ... Written by Huggo

A Killing Spring ...And the Bodies Begin to Pile Up *
22 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The dean of a college is found dead. The guy was real swinger with fellow students as well as the wife of the assistant dean. Sounds like there will be a list of people who wanted to do this cad in.

On the faculty of this swinging college, we have a former policewoman who will turn sleuth in investigating this murder.

An undeserving student was supposed to win an award from this dean based upon her written essay. Pretty soon the poor thing turns up dead. Naturally, she had been in bed with the guy. We can't suspect the deserving student because he soon turns up dead as well.

Suddenly, we're going back to a death of a vagrant due to a heroin overdose. Or was it an overdose?

The story had potential but deteriorates rapidly as the bodies begin to pile up.

A real Florida community college life is shown. The school is short on academics and so is this film.
