|January 2, 1960  "The Case
of the Violent Village"
Perry is planning on a relaxing weekend in the Sierra town of Fawnskin, hunting with his old friend Sheriff Gene Norris, but he gets sidetracked into another murder case.
The town is out for blood when Phil Beecher returns from jail. Phil did time for drunken driving and neglience in the car accident that killed Aggie, the sheriff's daughter. Aggie's sister Charlotte wants revenge, and frames Phil for robbery. When the scheme backfires, Charlotte herself is killed, and things look pretty grim for Phil. A lynching is a definite possibility before Perry steps in.
Webmaster's Note: D. A. Supernaw notes that Fawnskin is actually in the San Bernardino National Forest, near Big Bear lake, not in the Sierras. A sign seen in the episode says that Fawnskin is in the Sierras however.
