The Belle in the Belfry


An exploration of the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the death penalty.

The Terrible Murders of Blanche Lamont and Minnie Williams

Although this episode begins with the disappearance of young Blanche Lamont, it is the body of her friend and confidante Minnie Williams that is first found in a storage room in a San Francisco Baptist Church.

But in searching for clues, police find Blanche’s brutalized corpse far up in the church’s bell tower.

The Sunday School Superintendent, a dapper but depraved medical student is charged with both murders, tried for the death of Blanche Lamont.

I don’t want to give out any spoilers, but you’ll want to stick around for the bizarre execution feast at the end.
