    What relationship is he to ol’ Sweat?

    So, Sweatbox is his son, perhaps?

    Stephen Baux [Box] = Sweatbox. I wonder if there was a switched idientity and this is the real Stephen Baux?

    @blunebottle

    I can see that as a distinct possibility !
    Is the guy at the door a red herring ?

    @blunebottle

    possibly they were twin brothers?

    Maybe that’s it, Sweatbox killed someone, framed his twin brother, who was then “Conveniently” killed in jail…. at Sweatbox’s orders!!!!

    Who wrote the confession, and when was the murder committed? It’s unlikely that any of the internees could have done it, given that they came from outside the region and were locked up upon their arrival. One of the guards would be an obvious suspect; the jailhouse murder could have been committed by a man who was later drafted and assigned to guard the camp.

    Yup, I’m sure of it. Stephen Baux = Sweatbox

    Not an internee, by the look of it….he’s not Japanese.

    You’re replying to 60sFan’s comment:

    Except that Stephen Baux was supposedly killed in jail…. unless the Baux in jail was Sweatboxes twin brother

    As many have already noted, Baux and Box are probably one and the same. But if Stephen was slain while in the joint, who wrote the confession and hid it beneath Barracks One? “Sweat”? And who is Sweatbox, in relation to Stephen? Son of? Brother of? Murderer of?

    For some reason, I always thought Dick Tracy and Company operated out of a city on the East Coast. If he’s investigating a matter concerning a WWII Japanese internment camp, he’d have to be operating from the West Coast…

    this is getting more interesting every day. remind me again, WHO was it that said they wanted to see more DETECTIVE WORK from tracy and his co-workers? well, theyre getting it IN SPADES this time! i’m thinking stephen baux is probably sweatbox’s son, and if “sweaty” IS the pedophile, it’s probably due to the loss of his young son that he “preys” on younger children

    I believe it would be Chicago, Robert.

    Gotta think Stephen Baux was Sweatbox’s brother.
    But the question remains – who wrote the confession? And was it a real confession, or forced?
    There are so many possibilities…!
