One of Big Boy’s gangsters, Crutch and his partner scoped out Emil Trueheart’s Delicatessen and broke in to rob the joint, shooting Emil dead, knocking out Dick Tracy and taking Tess Trueheart captive.  These crimes are what led Tracy to join the police force.  Sticking close to Big Boy for awhile, Crutch took part in Ribs Mocco’s plan to kill Dick Tracy as he drove by.  The hit went wrong and Crutch and his partner Spike shot Ribs instead and then were killed in a shootout with Tracy and several officers.
