Killer: Lt. Roy Quinlan

Cause of death: Gunshot

Motive: Hired by Nathan Swarthmore via Danforth Data to kill John as he had testified against their company regarding fraud.


When Jessica Fletcher first called Maude Winslow, she mentioned that she hoped she wasn't interrupting her dinner, since Chicago was two hours behind. Jessica was in Boston at the time (Eastern time), which is only an hour ahead of Chicago (Central time). To be two hours ahead of Chicago, Jessica would have to be 1000 miles into the Atlantic Ocean.

When Cookie the bartender shows Jessica the newspaper about Harry, the headline has the word Homicide misspelled as "homocide".
