So it's a surprise when he gets a phone call from his boss at 8:38 a.m. telling him a local policeman was killed. Heading off to get the story, he gets another call: the story's off, the cop committed suicide. But why would a man with a beautiful wife and plans to take his children to Disney World kill himself?
