RADIO PATROL "KIller on the Loose"

From the 1950s, when "prowl cars" were still a novel concept...
...here's a violent pre-Comics Code tale by Steve (Spider-Man) Ditko!
Radio Patrol was an ongoing feature in Charlton's Crime & Justice, though this story from #18 in 1954 was Ditko's only contribution to the series.
It was also the final chapter in the short-lived existence of this version of Radio Patrol.
This series bore no relation to an earlier long-running newspaper comic strip which was adapted into both a short-lived radio show and a movie serial.
That strip, which featured totally different characters, had been canceled in 1950.
