As the day progresses, just how much he is loathed in the village becomes evident. Bill Archer, recently released from prison for poaching, is warned by Mary, the vicarage maid, to keep out of the Colonel's way as he is hell-bent on putting Archer back inside. Even Lettice, the Colonel's daughter, is mad at her father, after an incident involving Lawrence Redding, an attractive young artist. She can now understand why her mother left him many years ago. Clement later discovers Ann, the Colonel's second wife, in the arms of the artist. She confesses her love for Redding and her unhappiness with Protheroe. Griselda finds her at home party for the village gossips dominated by discussion of the Colonel's faults. The recent arrival of the mysterious, reclusive Mrs Lestrange and her relationship with Dr Haydock barely gets a mention The following day, the Colonel is found dead. Detective Inspector Slack arrives at the scene of the crime and is none-too-pleased to find Miss Marple already there, and as far as he is concerned the case is concluded when the next day Lawrence Redding confesses to killing the Colonel. But Dr Haydock maintains that at the time of death Redding was elsewhere, and Ann Protheroe insists that she shot her husband and Redding has confessed to save her although another witness contradicts her whereabouts at the time the shot was heard.
