Monty “Open-Mind” Hepbeat ran a stolen jewelry ring from a greenhouse and sent his gems to be fenced by either carrier pigeon or in potted plants. Open-Mind’s name came from the knife blade stuck into his forhead, which rumor had it had become stuck after a fight and would kill him if removed. Monty’s sister-in-law Dewdrop came to him after his brother Sticks was shot and police were after her. Dewdrop and Monty planned to kill Tracy, but he tricked them into shooting a dummy instead. Dewdrop and later Monty and his gang would all be arrested once they let down their guard thinking the famous Dick Tracy was dead.
