Jim had secretly recorded his conversation with Krome, which his partner found and played for Dick Tracy, who pursued with Pat Patton. Krome and his hostage were caught in a blizzard, and Jim used his equipment to call for help. When he radioed the State Police and told them that Krome was with him, the criminal knocked the man unconscious and fled into the snow. Krome found the house of [[Doc Codd]], the doctor he was seeking. At the same time, Tracy and Pat found the abandoned car with the unconscious radio operator still alive inside. Krome was told that his arm was gangrenous and would have to amputated. With the hulking, deformed nurse [[Mina]] administering anesthetic, the doctor removed Krome's arm. After his patient revived, Doc Codd arranged to have Krome taken back into the city by a passing snowplow driver. Shortly thereafter, Tracy and Pat happened upon the doctor's home with the half-frozen radio operator. Codd treated Jim, but Tracy found evidence that Krome had been there and placed Doc Codd under arrest. Tracy called the local [[Sheriff (Krome Storyline)|sheriff]] to watch Codd while he and Pat pursued Krome. The snowplow driver who was transporting Krome came across Tracy's snowed-in car and found the "wanted" picture of Krome. He took it with him and Krome discovered it in the driver's pocket. Holding the driver at gunpoint, Krome demanded they make better time to the city. [[File:Krome02.jpg|left|thumb]] Krome ordered the snowplow driver to lift the plow and drive over a frozen river, believing that it would speed the journey. The truck crashed though the ice. Krome managed to crawl out quickly and took shelter under a snowdrift while Tracy, Pat and some others rescued the driver of the snowplow. Krome, weak from the drastic operation and exposure to the frigid river water, froze to death with his gun just out of reach (February 19th, 1941).
