Sam Hegg was a vile man: He drank, he was mean and foul-mouthed, and when he went to town, which was seventy miles away over dirt roads, he left Volner to keep working at the mine. Volner felt he was left behind because Sam Hegg didn't trust him not to run off and tell somebody about the mine. Volner stayed and worked for Sam Hegg for three years. Both of them were forever hoping that just a few feet more and they'd hit a pocket or a thick vein of pure gold. If they did, Volner was promised a third of the profits—enough to make him fabulously rich.

One night Volner was coming back from chopping some firewood. Sam Hegg was sitting on a stump smoking his Creating a Murderer pipe, watching a beautiful sunset, having a taste of whisky. Volner came up behind him and whacked him in the head with his ax and killed him instantly. Volner buried the body, took the gold he found in Sam Hegg's stash, and concealed the mine with brush.
