Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Chief of detectives Amy Prentiss (Jessica Walter) tries to get to the bottom of a seemingly open-and-shut murder case. An alcoholic (Don Murray) behaves horribly at a party, then passes out. He awakens the next morning to find an unidentified dead girl in his apartment. Homicide detective Andrew Prine is convinced that the drunk is the killer, but Mrs. Prentiss is unsatisfied with this instant deduction. Originally telecast December 22, 1974, the 2-hour The Desperate World of Jane Doe was the second installment in the Amy Prentiss TV series.
