Actually I thought this was rather humorous in a very dry way......although I know it wasn't meant to be.

Mr. Wooten has been murdered just after his deaf daughter is found learning to sign. Wooten believed that his daughter should be as "normal" as possible so he sent her to a lip-reading speaking school for the deaf. He also refused her to keep company with other deaf people aside from her school mates.

She in turn decided that if she was to communicate with other deaf people she needed to know how to sign and began taking private lessons behind her father's back with a very handsome young deaf teacher with whom she fell in love.

Detective Sergeant Malloy is called upon to investigate the murder and during his investigation he comes upon the widow in the arms of a very young man who is a friend of the family.....in the midst of their interview, Mrs. Wooten doubles over in pain and her waters break, causing D.S. Malloy to call for his friend, Mrs. Sarah Brandt (a midwife) to come & help the not-so grieving widow deliver.
