Model Jones and Junior Tracy met at a roller skaing rink, began dating and fell in love in the early fifties. Unfortunatly for the two love birds, her brother Larry was a habitual criminal who kept squeezing money out of Model, the only member of the family with a job. Soon, overwrought with her brother’s criminal acts and her parents alcoholism, Model ran away from home with Junior. When Larry shot a cop during a robbery, Model finally returned, tracking down her brother at an old hideout and begged him to give up his criminal career and turn himself in. Tracy, Junior and Sam showed up at the hideout and when Larry pointed his weapon at them Model attempted to grab it away. Larry accidently shot Model in the neck and she would die a few days later in the hospital.
