Detective Mike Trapp and Pepper Burns are sent to investigate the missing Jim Cobb. They begin their search at the home that Cobb shared with his wife. Arriving at the driveway, noticing that it is covered with cinders, Mike picks up what Pepper believes to be a pebble.

They go inside and question Mrs. Cobb about her husbands disappearance. When she shows Trapp a picture of her and her husband, he arrests her for the murder of her husband. Trapp then explains to Pepper that Mrs. Cobb had killed her husband and then incinerated his body in the furnace and tried to hide the ashes on the drive way. She gave herself away by showing him the picture which showed that her husband had a gold tooth, the exact object Mike pulled out of the ashes on the driveway.
