At a remote mountain cabin, businessman Thomas Corbin angrily confronts his longtime friend and partner William Foster over misappropriation of company assets. Foster kills Corbin with a hunting rifle, transports the body to a muddy and wooded area, and calls the Highway Patrol. Dan Mathews becomes suspicious about the apparent "hunting accident" when he learns that Corbin disliked hunting and that his shoe soles were clean. His suspicions increase when it is revealed that Foster recently took $4,000 in cash from a company account and that he stands to inherit Corbin's share of the business. Dan returns to the cabin to confront Foster, who has become desperate to avoid exposure as a murderer and a thief. Written by Sam Spear
