However, she denied knowing Albert's whereabouts or being part of the racket.

With Hammond in hiding and his life in danger, Candy was free to take his betting slips and collected on his winnings at the various bookmakers throughout L.A., while unknown to her that she was being tailed by Phelps and Earle. After collecting all of Hammond's winnings, which accumulating a total of over $11,000, Candy prepared to leave Los Angeles. The winnings were covertly taken by Hammond who in actuality allowed Candy to collect them while he was maintaining a low profile.

Phelps arrived to aid Candy, but she died shortly thereafter from her knife wound before medical help could arrive.
