Synopsis for The Mouthpiece: "The Van Deth Brothers"

Brutal robbers Morbidd and Scul Van Deth have operated with impunity from their remote mansion in Lonesome Hollow for quite some time. One evening Scul sneaks up behind Morbidd and bashes in his head with the butt of a pistol, laughs and gloats for a moment, then hides the body in a secret crypt in the wall of their basement, and bricks up the wall to conceal it. Just then there's a knock at the front door, and it's the Mouthpiece! He has some questions about a recent candy store robbery. Mouthpiece searches the house, and in the basement, they both hear a voice coming out of one wall. Scul blurts out some self-incriminating remarks, and Mouthpiece takes a crowbar to the fresh-looking brickwork, and the horrible yowling from the wall continues. Soon a big black tom cat jumps into the cellar, it's Satan, Morbidd's cat, and apparently he got accidentally walled in. Mouthpiece keeps at it with the crowbar, uncovers the crypt, and finds Morbidd's body.

Scul tries to run for it, from the cellar to the roof of his mansion, with Mouthpiece right behind him the whole way, then Scul tries to shoot the Mouthpiece, and misses. Mouthpiece waits for the right moment, and shoots Scul between the eyes.
