Synopsis for Manhunter: "The Slaughter Symphony"

Sigor Orsky has his orchestra perform his new composition, which he calls "Symphony in Slaughter". This prove to be more than a morbid name, as a cellist is shot at point blank range in the middle of it. Officer Richards finds $1000 in brand new bills in his pocket, and finds this extremely suspicious. When then inept Clancy arrests the guy sitting next to the victim as the obvious suspect, Richards suits up as Manhunter to investigate.

As he suspected, Manhunter finds a hidden gun inside the cello, but immediately finds himself held at gunpoint by a masked man come to collect the evidence. The man escapes by throwing pepper at Thor and dropping a sandbag on Manhunter. However, his nap has given Manhunter a chance to come up with a theory on what's going on. Trailing Orsky to his house, Manhunter comes upon the villain collecting another brilliant symphony from his captive twin brother (the real Sigor Orsky) just before he's about to administer a lethal injection. The murdered cellist had discovered the kidnapping and was blackmailing the imitation Orsky to keep it secret.
