Storyline

When David McReynolds feels his flirt Allison Porter is too cumbersome and unwilling to stay out of the public eye now she's no longer under age, he strangles her in the bath on her 18th birthday, just before his father Peter McReynolds proudly swears him in as fellow Justice on the California Supreme Court. New assistant medical examiner Amanda confirms the lack of bruises suggests no struggle: Allison knew her killer. Mark finds her stolen jewelry on OD'd junkie Otis, but believes he didn't kill and soon catches David at lying about his hobby, fishing in a fancy yacht like his dad. The Sloans discover his under-age affair and that Allison's parents knew from her diary. Steven finds David murdered at his dinner table, with Allison's mother Helen's gun, she admits having been David's lover herself but claims she was unable to shoot him. David's medicine for inherited pancreatic insufficiency opens another trail, but without proof, yet Mark finds another way... Written by KGF Vissers
