While restoring her house in Cabot Cove, Jessica worries that her contractor is preoccupied by the remodeling of another house until the project is put on hold when the client is found murdered.

Victim(s): Laurel Perrin (happened 18 months prior) and Lawrence Baker

Killer: Charles Weatherly

Cause of Death: Bludgeoned with a hammer; stabbed in the chest with a wooden stake.

Motive: Angry after she changed her mind and decided to break off their engagement; to stop the renovations, which would have led to Laurel's body being discovered.


Borbey is not a Hungarian word. The noun baker, as in "one who bakes," is pek in Hungarian.

If Laurel Perrin's body had truly been walled up for 18 months, somebody (especially the previous homeowners) would have eventually noticed the smell of a decomposing body. Drywall is not sufficient to hide that kind of odor.

Lawrence Baker has an aversion to sunlight & yet he had no problem walking in sunlight for when he was at Philip's place of work when he encountered Jessica & he didn't have sunglasses did he, that anyone male or female would take off when coming into a place of business, now wouldn't they ?

The East German heard Sorenson & Baker fighting, he was the only one who heard the fight, was it ever proven who else had heard the fight besides the East German ?

Where Laurel's body was found, showed that it was apart of the house that Lawrence wanted removed, so with it being a part of the house would have made it a bearing wall, because Charles had boarded Laurel's body up in it, so you tell me as to how that didn't make it a bearing wall ?
