THE KILLER STRIKES AGAIN - THIS TIME WITH FIRE - ON ABC'S "WHODUNNIT?"

"Fire Starter" - One guest is dead, and it doesn't take long for the killer to strike again, this time using the element of fire. With 11 guests fighting to stay alive, they continue to search for evidence to solve the latest gruesome and fiery murder. This week, a medallion, note and socks - yes, socks -- will serve as key evidence, as the killer continues to set his or her sights on the next victim. "Whodunnit?" airs SUNDAY, JUNE 30 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

"Whodunnit?" is an interactive series that puts 13 amateur slueths' investigative skills to the test in a riveting mystery reality competition. Players will use a variety of crime scene investigation techniques to uncover evidence in a series of puzzling murders and ultimately reveal who among them is the killer. Some players will form alliances in the competition, while others will choose to go it alone in their quest for the grand prize of $250,000. The contestants will be guests on a glamorous estate called Rue Manor with a steward, Butler Giles (Gildart Jackson), and each week must solve a new crime in order to advance in the game. Failure to solve the crime will lead to a player's demise, until only three are left. In the final episode, one player will unmask the killer and take home the $250,000 prize.
