Old Man Simpson is found dead in a stall in his stable by his employee Hoss Mackey. Everyone assumes it was death by natural causes due to liquor and a bad heart until Doc Goodfellow notices a puncture wound on his neck. The autopsy shows he was killed by the injection of an air bubble. Simpson was a hard man to get along with so the first suspect is the fiancée Hal Babcock of Simpson's daughter Leone. A syringe is found in his trunk which he can't explain so Earp arrests Hal. He refuses to say where he was the night of the murder. Earp doesn't think he really did it based on his actions so Hal is released. Shotgun follows him as he buys a gun and confronts Gibbons who dated Leone at one time. Gibbons is wounded but then found dead in the hospital with an injection mark. Earp and Doc Holliday push Leone for a list of the men she has dated which she finally gives Earp. Earp starts down the list but soon finds himself the target of a needle. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Wyatt Earp: [Opening Narration] In the Tombstone of 1881, murder was not one of the subtle arts. The usual murder victim was either shot or stabbed in the back. But Tombstone had one killer who devised a different technique and it was up to Marshal Earp to catch this wily criminal before he himself became a victim.
