it's all right there with Donovan.

Donovan claimed that he

was trying to stop them,

but Hardin was holding a woman

hostage outside of town.

He said he was gonna kill her

if Donovan didn't aid in the robbery.

So Donovan said he went along with it,

until the last second.

- There was no sign of a mysterious woman.

- And Hardin?

Donovan claimed he shot him

in the head before he blacked out.

Never found the body.

Well, what happened next?

I don't know if it was his 20 years

of service to the law,

or the fact that Donovan claimed he never

fired a shot during the robbery, but...

something put doubts

in the minds of the jury.

That's a hangin' offense,

but they sentenced him to life

in the Yuma territorial prison.

He lasted there six weeks before escaping.

He was killed two days later

by a young deputy.

- Sounds like quite a story.

- Oh, it is.

I had to uncover a lot of rocks

to find this much.

- But what do you think?

- I'm not sure.

But I'm gonna let you

help me form that opinion.

- How's that?

- By getting an interview

with the last man alive

who knows what really happened.

His name is Seymour Redfield.

Some people think his real name

is Tom Sullivan.

The young deputy

that killed Donovan that day.

When Sullivan brought Donovan's body

back to town, he disappeared.

- Was never heard from again.

- Why don't you just talk to this man?


Let's just say we don't see eye to eye

and leave it at that.

Only interview I never got.

What makes you think

he'll wanna talk to me?

Because you have more motivation

than I do. Your job's on the line.

Get the story.




Hello? Mr. Redfield?


That's a .45 long Colt.

Its many admirers referred to it

as the peacemaker.

- Mr. Redfield?

- Depends on who's asking.
