Victor Sprudell determines to get it all for himself, and so decides that Bruce must be eliminated. As a result, Sprudell forges a diary and, showing it to Helen, claims that Slim wrote it. In the diary, Helen reads about Bruce's irrational behavior, and so comes to believe that it was Bruce who killed her brother.
