He gets publicly arrested and his wife calls upon a lawyer Howard Salomon. Salomon appoints Alec Pelley a private investigator who finds out that Terry has an alibi of being out of town during the time of the murder. Moreover, a hooded figure with a deformed face lingers outside the Maitland’s house. The next day, when terry is being taken to the courthouse for his hearing, he is killed by frank’s brother, terry remains persistent about his innocence even while dying, while the deformed man watches all the happenings.
