On the eve of Gordon Northcott's sentencing, a mob goes to the jail where he is being held. One of the leaders is N.H. Winslow, the father of two of Northcott's victims, Lewis and Nelson Winslow.
"I want the bodies of my boys. There are more than 250 men surrounding
this jail. If you allow us to take Northcott from here we will create
no disturbance. All we ask is that he reveal where he buried the bodies
of my children."
