On a peaceful morning in Dodge City, Matt gets word from young Beany Marvel that his pa is dead. Out at the homestead, Mrs Marvel shares the details as far as she knows of how her husband was shot. There aren’t many neighbors close by, so who might have had a reason to kill Hank?
Doc is on the scene to help Matt figure out facts about the shooter. What’s to be done with the pretty, young widow? Chester and Beany join Matt and Doc at the crime scene to figure out where the shooter was, and do what can be done in recreating the scene. It gives them a direction to go, and a cabin to check out.
The paranoid shooter in the cabin may be suspicious, but he offers a clue that might mean the answer for Matt. A family dispute is revealed as the source of death.
