help you, Danker.

- Wasn't there anybody who saw you?

- Look, it's a city.

Nobody sees you in a city,

do they, mister?

- Your room clerk, landlady.

- I didn't have no room. I was busted all the time.

- Where'd you sleep that night?

- Under a new building going up.

- One near the freight yard.

- Where'd you get this, Bob?

That ain't blood.

That's red paint off a girder.

Red paint, in the cellar

of that building where I holed up.

- All right, Bob.

- It's paint, I tell you.

We'll send you some other clothes.

In the meantime, get those off.

Have his clothes

and his shoes sent in right away.

We'll book him on suspicion of robbery.

We'll book him on suspicion of robbery.

At the F.B.I. laboratory in Washington...

a microscopic examination

and chemical analysis...

was made of the smudge

on Danker's coat.

Exposed to the spectrograph,

the smudge was broken down...

into its component parts

and photographed.

The densitometer

concluded the examination...

and the results were immediately

forwarded to Inspector Briggs.

- Is the chief in?

- Yes, sir. He's expecting you.

Inspector Briggs

is on his way in, sir.

Lieutenant Staller,

Inspector Briggs is here.

- Hello, Inspector.

- Hello, Paul.

- What's the score?

- Danker's innocent.

- No!

- Our laboratory definitely places him in Chicago...

at the time the Jannings girl

was murdered at the Meadowbrook.

- Well!

- That girder was painted at 5:30...

on the afternoon

of the murder.

It was quick-drying stuff,

from six to eight hours.

The paint penetrated his coat

just enough to show...

that it was almost dry at the time

that Danker rubbed against it.

- What do you know?

- Which puts him in Chicago between 1:00 and 2:00 a. m...

around the time

the Jannings girl was killed.
