Someone broke into Heinz Caval's Miracle Cure Apothecary Store and smashed the place up. Everyone knew Mad Jane Gooding had a major beef with Mr Caval about some failed Miracle Cure, and fingers were pointed. But this wasn't Mad Jane's doing, Sheriff Cole knew. The bitterness from Mad Jane was older than that: she and Heinz had once been lovers, but Heinz Caval had refused to wed her. Relations were cold since then; cold, but never cruel.
Which was why, when Clint ran into Sheriff Cole's office to tell them about Mr Bowen's murder, he knew Clint had done nothing.
