An escapee from a mental hospital is the primary suspect in the violent death of a farmer.
Clarence Miller escapes from the state mental hospital and heads toward a rural area. He becomes the primary suspect when local farmer Ed Burr is killed and his body is found severely mangled. Hungry and confused, he stops at the farm of Lucy Clifford and finds her willing to feed and talk to him. Dan Mathews and his officers converge on the area and find their search hindered by Milo Hobson, a shotgun-wielding friend of the dead man who matter-of-factly states that he has no intention of letting that "...homicidal maniac get off with an insanity plea." Dan learns of Miller's visit to Lucy's farm and he also learns that Burr actually died of a heart attack and that his body was subsequently trampled by livestock. He also learns that he has only minutes to find the confused young man before he becomes a victim of Hobson's shotgun.
