| Randall Has To Expose Clever Killers
An interesting opening sets up this story as we see a man who had just been knocked out lying on the ground. The man over him puts his wallet on the unconscious man's body. His girlfriend enters the scene and coldly shoots the prone man twice, killing him.

It turns out the man who set this up - the one who planted the wallet - is a wanted criminal whom Josh Randall is after. The plan is to think the wanted man, "Vic Warsaw" (Don Durant) is dead. "Miss Lucy" (Betsy Drake), the cold- hearted woman in on this scam, is the town seamstress and liked and trusted by everyone. She is the key character in this story.

As soon as Josh finds out the dead man was a penniless man, who even had holes in his socks, he figures out that it's not "Vic" that was killed and buried and that the real wanted man is probably still in town and in cahoots with "Lucy Fremont."

The rest of the story is interesting as we find out how Randall can uncover the truth in this fraud-murder. It's another good episode.
