“Beloved Doctor” opened with Kelly & Allen Brown traveling to Paducah, Kentucky. Frank Shemwell’s body was burned beyond recognition in a fire on July 24, 2006. Everyone in town knew Frank who was very popular. Dr. Shemwell (81) was hit in the head with a blunt object & was burned alive.
Penny Baird married Frank who was 40 years younger than him. He made her sign a pre-nuptial agreement & she had no money. Penny worked hard on influencing Frank to change his “will” making her the administrator. She broke her probation & was heading to jail before Frank died. Chris Baird is the son of Penny who was evasive on his whereabouts during Frank’s death. Penny was having an affair with Tim Jones who had no alibi.
Tim has a hobby of race cars that uses nitro-methane gas. An accelerate fluid was used to burn up Frank. Penny told police that Tim admitted to killing Frank & he will bring her down with him if the “truth” comes out. Penny was dating Frank when his wife was dying of cancer. The children inherited the family home & they sold it immediately after Frank died.
Investigators re-enact the murder of Frank Shemwell in the home he grew up in. They also break down the time-lines on Penny, Tim & Chris on the day Frank died. They all become the prime suspects, but the main target is Penny who wanted Frank’s money. Investigators question people who knew all three suspects.
Who killed Frank? Was it Penny, Tim or Chris? You can watch “Beloved Doctor” over at TNT.
