A medical school professor kills his wife and mutilates her face so she can't be recognized and hangs her body in the meat locker for the students to examine.

Faced with names and date inscribed on the wedding ring, the professor confesses to the murder and is led away, but the student who examined the body is puzzled the man bothered to kill her since she suffered from advanced cancer and would have died within six months anyway.
