Pigskin Parson got his nickname when he was a football star in the 1950’s. He later became an Olympic champion, organized a boys club and finally was elected citizen of the year in Dick Tracy’s hometown. Pigskin’s life was cut short when he agreed to do a heart study with a phony institute. He was picked up in a rented limousine, modified to pipe carbon monoxide into the back compartment, which slowly killed Parson. The driver, Smallmouth Bass delivered the body to Dr. Olga to remove Pigskin’s heart which was then put into a locker for Smallmouth to pick up again. Police found the heart first (thinking it was a bomb) and the criminal enterprises fell apart with Smallmouth and his father Dr. Orta dead and Dr. Olga in prison.
