Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the death of Dr. Faye Walsh, a genetic researcher who is found shot in the back in her university laboratory. The killing has all of the hallmarks of animal rights activists with lab rats having been released and slogans written on the wall. They arrest one activist but he has a alibi for when Walsh was killed. The case takes a sudden turn when they learn the victim thought her husband, Donald Walsh, was having an affair and had even hired a private detective to look into it. An administrator at the lab, Susan Boyd, admits to the affair but flatly denies having anything to do with Faye's death. She agrees to a plea bargain offered by ADA Stone and testifies against Walsh. Afterwards however, Stone begins to wonder if Boyd is a fantasist who has made the whole thing up. Written by garykmcd

Mental cases
19 April 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For years, I tried to find a name or any recognition for this type of mental disorder---having had a person like this INFLICTED upon me by the housing office at my university. There's an empty spot in your room? Good! We'll put in first, a mental case, and then two sluts! I suppose that it could have been worse.

Hats off to Frances for portraying this kind of nut ball. By the end they have you thinking that you are crazy instead of them. The lawyers had a stroke of luck tripping up her years of woven lies.

I wonder how many people have been victimized by this type of headcase.
