Storyline

When a body if fished out of the river, Lt. Aggie Stewart of the Bureau of Missing Persons is put I charge of the case. After 10 days and having made little headway, the body is buried in a pauper's grave. As is her custom, she attends the funeral to see if anyone shows up. In this case, flowers are sent from a well-known mob-owned business. She manages to trace the woman who sent the flowers. Eliot Ness meanwhile is looking to stop the biggest shipment ever of illegal liquor worth well over $1 million. What they all soon realize is that the two cases are connected. Written by garykmcd

Cases inextricably linked
18 January 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Barbara Stanwyck guest starred again and played her character of Lieutenant Agatha Stewart from the Chicago PD who is in charge of the Bureau Of Missing Persons. When a body without a piece of identification washes up in the Chicago River, Stanwyck and her second in command Ed Asner go to work.

What they don't realize is that the body was once a top gangster who's been the victim of a palace coup. A fact that Robert Stack and The Untouchables are much interested in as a rumored really large shipment of illegal whiskey is supposed heading to Chicago for the man who is now in a potter's field grave.

This might have been an interesting series for Stanwyck. Only two years later this movie queen moved to television and a nice western series The Big Valley.

I guess for the writers of The Untouchables it was easier to just give two episodes to Stanwyck and her series pilot. They certainly were running out of the notorious mobsters of the era to write about.
