This is one of the few episodes in which the killer doesn't confess to the crime after they're revealed, with Lt. Faraday instead saying that he's sure they can get them to confess.

Victim: Randy Witworth

Killer: Al Parker
Cause of death: Stabbed

Motive: Al was afraid Randy would find out he was the bootlegger.

Goofs[edit | edit source]

I can see how Al Parker was responsible for the blackouts at the radio station, but it's very odd that he the weapon he had stolen from the Dalton Home kept at the radio station & also, did he know that Stoney confronted Randy about the piracy, & if Al didn't know at all, would he have a motive to kill ?[edit | edit source]
