"Murder by Law"
AIRDATE: 04.30.86


WHAT SAID:  

Hooker searches for a murderer whose victims all were female lawyers who attended the same law school.

SYNOPSIS:  

When attorney Jean McGowan is murdered, she becomes the third victim in a string of women attorneys who have been killed. Apparently all three women attended the same law school and graduated the same year. When looking through the class roster, Hooker notes that Rosemary Shea was omitted from the graduating list because she suffered a nervous breakdown after she threatened her classmates and attacked another. He also notes that Frances Driscoll and Catherine Gomez lived in the same area and graduated at the same time as the other three victims. He places Frances under protective custody, but reaches Catherine just as she is shot. In the meantime, Corrigan and Stacy have paid Rosemary a visit in the hospital. Upon returning to the precinct, they realize that a man they saw at the mental hospital fits the police composite taken from Hooker's description of the man who shot Catherine. They check the hospital records and come up with the name Martin Novak. Realizing he is trying to help Rosemary get her revenge, Stacey poses as Frances and accompanies her to court. During a court adjournment, Stacy and Frances go to the powder room to freshen up where they are attacked by Novak. He becomes confused when both women claim to be Frances. Hooker bursts in just as Novak dives through the window. Shots are exchanged, leaving Noval wounded and taken into custody.
