Tell a Tale Three Times: Part 2 "Phantom of Marcos' Villa"

Last time, we presented a tale starring Lady Satan...
Now, here's that tale again (sort of), starring "Marietta" instead of Lady Satan, and featuring some rewritten plot elements and dialogue.
Published in St John's Authentic Police Cases #5 (1948), this version reworks the story with only minor changes to the art, including removing Lady Satan's mask to make her the maskless "Mairetta".
Curiously, Authentic Police Cases had already reprinted other Lady Satan tales, without making any alterations!
Tomorrow, yet another version of this tale, with another heroine, now named "Celeste" who is now the daughter of the dead man.
Plus, an explanation of why this re-use of the story occurred!
