Stone and Robinette go after a defense contractor, as well as his lawyer and the hit-man he allegedly hired, after two men are killed and a whistle-blower who planned to testify against him goes missing.
This episode appears to be based on the CBS Murders case. In 1982, Irwin Margolies hired Donald Nash to kill Margaret Barbera and Jenny Soo Chin, who were cooperating with a Federal investigation into Margolie's $5.7-million-dollar fraud. On January 5 1982, Nash succeed in killing Chin, whose body was never found. On April 12, Nash would kill Barbera and also kill Leo Kuranuki, Robert Schulze, and Edward Benford--three CBS-TV technicians who the police believed were coming to Barbera's aid. Barbera's body was found in Manhattan the next morning. Nash was convicted of four counts of second-degree murder and a single count of conspiracy, and he was sentenced to 100 years in prison. Margolies was sentenced to 50 years for ordering the murders.
