Storyline

Convict Lester Sprode and his girlfriend, Audine Higgs, rob and kill store owner Miss Elnora. The crime is witnessed by Elnora's young grandson Scooter. Chief Gillespie and Detective Virgil Tibbs investigate as Althea Tibbs attends the boy. Lester and Audine go on a crime spree, robbing and killing shop owner Mr. Randall, shooting a customer at the store, and murdering a car owner when they switch cars. Lester and Audine hole up in a remote cabin. At the lake, Althea counsels Scooter as Lester and Audine take them hostage and steal Althea's car. Police road blocks force everyone back to the cabin. At Althea's urging, Audine and Scooter escape but Althea is recaptured by Lester. Gillespie and Tibbs search for clues, and Bubba Skinner steps up to the plate. Written by richardann
