The little she knows about his death does not mesh with what he is told by the young Chico he finds visiting Bill's grave.

Goofs

The Sheriff tells the suspect anything he says can be used against him. While this phrase used by law enforcement is well-known in modern tines due to the US Supreme Court Miranda ruling, that ruling took place in June 1966, about 70 years after the time period for this series. The ruling was topical to this episode, having taken place about 4 months prior to the October 1966 air date. See more »
