A criminal is arrested in Austin, Texas, who had no fingerprints. The F.B.I. was called into the case, and they discovered that Peters had had a New Jersey doctor cut the flesh off his fingers to the bone, then grafted them temporarily to his chest. When the flesh united, the fingers were separated from the man's chest, leaving no prints. However, the F.B.I. was able to positively identify Peters, using the prints from the sides of his fingers!
