Dick Tracy Wiki

Inga Yelma was a professional skier. She had previously been a member of the performing group known as The Kitten Sisters, though she was not related to any of the other members.

When interest in the Kitten Sisters' act (which consisted of acrobatics and tumbling) waned, they decided to turn to petty theft and shoplifting to support themselves. Inga objected to this plan and left the group. She turned her attention to skiing and ski jumping, and became a prominent figure in the sport.

Inga contacted a newspaper reporter named Joe Cullun and planned to tell him what she knew about the Kitten Sisters' activities. The Sisters learned of this and plotted to kill Inga. One of them (Fifi) shot Inga with an arrow while Inga was performing a televised ski jump. Inga died, and the sensational nature of the murder attracted the attention of Dick Tracy.
