This is episode 12 of the 1959-60 Police series, THIS MAN DAWSON. The series ran for a total of 39 episodes. Keith Andes headlines the series about an Ex-Military Officer hired to run a big city Police Department. The city is never named. Each episode starts and finishes with William Conrad doing the narration of the night's story.
Several single women have been found strangled in their apartments. The Police find articles of clothing and shoes left at each of the crime scenes. They figure these are being left behind by the killer. Fingerprints are no help since those found match nothing on file.
Police Chief, Keith Andes calls in the Police headshrinker for any ideas he might have. Andes is told it most likely is a man with a strong resentment towards woman. The clues he leaves behind are to either taunt the Police, or because he wants to be caught.
The viewer finds out that the killer, Jack Ging, does have a real problem with the opposite sex. Well, at least half of him does. The man suffers from a split personality. Sometimes he is the mild veterinarian assistant, sometimes he is the vicious woman hater with the neck squeezing problem.
During one of Ging's more lucid moments, he calls the Police and begs them to stop him before he kills again. The problem here is that the name he gives is for the crazy half. The Police however have found a common lead from the crime scenes, dog hair. They quickly discover that the women all used the same veterinarian.
The Police soon run down who they are looking for, they put the grab on Ging just as he goes after his latest choice for strangling.
Handling the directing reins on this one is series producer and narrator, William Conrad.
