Storyline

In Hangtree, Carson, jailer Walter Parsell, who aspires a detective career and studies criminology, is found on the street outside a robbed jeweler, fatally stabbed as with a prison shunt. Suspect ex-cons include the jail's top-dog, lifer Marcus Lansdale, whom Parsell singled out for transfer to a maximum security prison, as Wayne's no-good father, smuggler Steve Rigsby. Marcus's girlfriend's brother also has a record. Rigbsby calls pa's bluff he can find the killer in no time, which leads to Butch Carwin's drug ring. Patrick meanwhile searches in jail, concentrating on trustees. Written by KGF Vissers
