This was an extremely adult oriented episode. Mystery Theater did an amazing job of showing how a playboy, who fed off defenseless models, was apprehended of rape. Very contemporary for 1978. A very good listen worthy of 4 stars.

A Model Murderer is not a particularly noteworthy outing by writer Ian Martin. Larry Haines is a favorite actor of mine who can also be heard on the older radio series X Minus One. He doesn’t seem to be able to shine in this odd story about a misogynist turned murderer. E.G. Marshall even plays apologist and optimist between acts of this dark tale, first trying to convince us that perhaps a murder victim is not dead (she is), and then telling us that cozy coincidences happen all the time (they don’t). Award for worst come-back goes to the main character who responds “How did you know?” after being accused of murder by the police. This Model gets a mere 1 star out of 5 – Juror #4

A strong minded wife is to blame for her husband raping and murdering models......very 1978...
