Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Native American George Longbow (Bernie White), a member of the Algonquin tribe, shows up in Cabot Cove bearing a seemingly authentic land grant which states that Longbow owns the entire community. One of the locals is displeased by George's presence, threatening dire consequences if the Indian tries to lay claim to Cabot Cove. Shortly thereafter, the angry citizen is found murdered--with an Algonquin lance. An open-and-shut case? Not so far as Jessica Fletcher (Angela Lansbury) is concerned.
