Investigation is on the way and many dead leads have been cut. Bobby Rupp being a suspect is one of them, becoming a dead end after taking, and passing the lie detector test. Meanwhile a man who was at the state prison in Kansas heard about the murders, and right away knew who was responsible. Dick Hickworth. He had told him earlier about Clutter keeping large amounts of cash at his farm, and Hickock had believed him because the man had worked for the farmer. Hickock had then gone on to convince a buddy named Smith to commit the crime with him. While the authorities were still running around in circles, the two murderers were on their way to Mexico, where they blew all their money entertaining a rich German tourist. They decided to head back to the states, and while packing Smith reminisces on his past. The men continued to pass back checks and steal cars up until the point of being captured, and sitting on Death Row for five years. After those five years the two men were hung with awkwardness and remorse.
