Judge Parker was furious Otis Hite had escaped the gallows and told Deputy Marshal Murray Allen to bring him back. Murray faced a long and dangerous journey, travelling through the badlands of the Texas Panhandle to Tucumcari in New Mexico before picking up Hite's trail. But without the help of Naiche and Talu, two young Apaches, it would have been Murray's last trail. Even so it was touch and go whether he would survive the final shoot-out with Hite and his gang.
