Morris Penroy has been living in Cabot Cove for about a year. He is boarding with sisters Lillian and Helen Appletree. When he is found buried in the Appletrees garden after the sisters have cashed his pension check, they are obvious suspects. Several other odd characters are in Cabot Cove, but it all comes into focus when an insurance investigator arrives looking for Penroy in relation to a $5 million robbery, a theft that took place where Penroy was employed. When another body is found at the Appletrees it certainly looks like the gals have taken up peculiar habits. Jessica of course thinks they are innocent and sets out to find the perpetrator.
