We are moving ever so closer to the end of the Murder in March Madness event. Today is the 24 the day of the event. Today's title is the 1997 film Murder At 1600.

Murder At 1600 (1997)

In a restroom in the White House, a janitor finds White House secretary Carla Town dead. Metropolitan Police homicide Detective Harlan Regis is put on the case. At the White House, Regis is introduced to U.S. Secret Service Director Nick Spikings, U.S. National Security Advisor Alvin Jordan and Secret Service agent Nina Chance. Spikings assigns Chance, a former Olympic gold-class sharpshooter, to keep an eye on Regis. Regis and Chance discover that Carla had an appointment in New York City and a flight from New York to the Virgin Islands, with no intention of returning to the U.S. The coroner then tells the detective and the agent that whoever had sex with Carla on the night of the murder used a condom, meaning that no DNA was left. The White House janitor was apparently unaccounted for on the night of the murder and had once attempted to make a pass at Carla He is arrested and questioned, but his testimony and a clearly set-up piece of evidence lead Regis to suspect that the Secret Service may be involved. That night, Regis finds his apartment burglarized; the culprit escapes, and in a subsequent search, a hidden bug is found.
