Sledge and Dori are assigned to investigate when 15 Elvis impersonators are murdered within a three-week period. They find that all 15 had two common characteristics: all were recent graduates of "The Famous School of Elvis Impersonators" and all were killed with a gold microphone immediately after winning a local Elvis impersonators' contest. Sledge goes undercover at the school, but his investigation is hindered by the building janitor. He nevertheless enters the next installment of the Elvis impersonators' contest in the hope of emerging victorious and becoming bait for the killer. No attempt is made on Sledge's life after he wins the contest, but an unlikely suspect is spotted in the bar holding a gold microphone when Sledge and Dori decide to go inside for a drink after their brief stake-out.

Sledge Hammer: You know, of all my years of being a cop, I will never figure out how people time and time again can do something like this.
Dori: It's true. Taking out a human life is just deplorable.
Sledge Hammer: Not that. The drawings of chalk outlines of dead bodies, that's just a ridiculous way of living!
