Old-Time Radio Theme Month, Day 7: "The Death of Me"

Today I'm looking back to Suspense and a memorable episode from May 26, 1952: "The Death of Me." It's from a point a little late into Suspense's run, but it resonates a nervous atmosphere well.

Our protagonist, Harry Sawyer, begins work at a logging camp in the hopes of dealing with his psychological problems. Consequently, when he witnesses a murder, it's difficult for him to make sense of what's happened. The murder scene (halfway through the program) is the highlight of the program.
