Jessica comes to the aid of a promising young reporter when he is suspected of murdering a rival magazine's unscrupulous publisher.
Victim: Harrison Kane
Killer: Kathryn Scofield
Cause of Death: Electrocution via hairdryer in his bathtub.
Motive: Overheard him making a pass at Abby Peters and realized what a womanizer he really was.
Kathryn's prints may have been all over the magazine, but, with the mailing label being addressed to Hans Dietrich, his prints are on it as well, so with his prints on the magazine, given the mailing label being addressed to him, his prints would have smudged Kathryn's prints as well, & I kind of doubt that partial prints can be traced back to her because then they would have to arrest Hans because he too would have been an accessory as well, because she was under his employ as well. Don't you think?
Especially, given that he may not have known that Kathryn was the killer, but, with her under his employ, he too would go down for harboring a murderer to stay in his employ.
