Storyline

After a trip to deliver horses to Pueblo, Colorado, Trampas decides to stay and visit an old friend Bill living nearby. Trampas arrives at Bill's hometown in time to attend Bill's funeral who was shot. After paying respects to Bill's sister Margaret and her husband Harry, the sheriff, Trampas is asked to stay to visit with Margaret. 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. He returns to ask Margaret additional questions but she knows no more nor does the Sheriff when Trampas visits him. The undertaker is able to tell Trampas the gun used to kill Bill was a rare pistol firing a heavy bullet. After discussions with Delores who is a friend of Chico, he senses that there are questions to be answered even though his judgment and warnings from Deputy Morrell and his friend Griff indicate he should go home. When he gets too close to the truth, Morrell and Griff beat him up and take his gun. A later ... Written by Anonymous

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 »
