Storyline

After holding up a stagecoach and killing the shotgun guard, an outlaw is captured by Marshal Fry, convicted and sentenced to hang. Even though he is scheduled to be executed, the outlaw refuses to reveal the location of the stolen loot, which includes the money a family borrowed for an operation to save the eyesight of a young boy. Clay convinces the Bisbee marshal to allow him to spend the night in jail in hopes of persuading the killer to reveal the location of the missing strongbox. Written by David Bassler

Marshal Simon Fry: If he stays alive, he'll have the best reason in the world to keep his mouth shut! I'm sorry, Clay, the court's sentence has got to be carried out.
