24. The Man Who Went Mad by Mistake
Case file: #115-28414-T
Mark Stephen Tabor: Bond Default, Fraud Against The Government, Unlawful Flight.
Original broadcast date: 6 March 1966
The good inspector goes undercover as a mental patient to see if the bad guy (Tabor) is faking a mental breakdown to avoid testifying in a federal case. The question never answered was if Tabor were truly faking or if he did indeed have a dehabilitating mental condition. So maybe he did not go “mad by mistake.” By the way, no interesting cars.
