During her act, during a loud point in the act she was shot dead and fell from her bar. Tracy was the first person on the scene and quickly knew this was no accident. He began investigating other members of the circus and after a lengthy investigation discovered Louise had a record and actually intended to murder the ringmaster, Ringo herself. Instead the strong woman, Barb Els shot her during the act, with the gunshot intentionally muffled by the clown Mr. Pops firing his blunderbuss. Barb Els wanted the pleasure of killing Ringo and so shot Louise.
