your aunt had not met a natural death?

I was.

What aroused your suspicions?

For years, Dr. Hibbard had assured me...

...that my aunt's heart condition

was nothing to worry about.

And when she died so suddenly, I was

naturally very shocked and surprised.

But even so, I didn't suspect anything...

...until I happened to run across a

scientific magazine in my aunt's library.

There was an article, which had

a great deal of significance to me... view of the circumstances.

The article was about sodium ferranide...

...and the portions of it dealing with

the chemical's poisonous properties...

...had been carefully marked in pencil.

To whom does this magazine belong?

It's addressed to Eula Denning.

- Did you mark this article, Miss Denning?

- Well, I...

- I must have

- Why?

I keep a file of all chemicals I work with.

Especially poisonous ones

and their antidotes.

Then you are interested in photography?


How familiar are you

with sodium ferranide?

Well, I know something about it.

Miss Denning, what was your

relationship to Kate Lambert?

My mother was her companion

for many years.

After mother died,

Miss Lambert took care of me.

Isn't it true that in Miss Lambert's will,

you were the sole beneficiary?


But I didn't kill her.

Why, Kate Lambert

was the best friend I ever had.

She put me through school,

treated me as her own child.

Yet you coerced her into making a will

leaving all her property to you.

- No.

- A will that was made...

...less than a week before her death.

- No. I didn't do it.

Someone must have taken the poison

from the dark room.

Mr. Garrett, if you had the chemical tin,

that would prove I was innocent.


The murderer's fingerprints

would be on it.

- Not if they'd been removed.

- But they couldn't be removed.
