Following Sarah's advice, Hank and Jacob go back to the airplane to return a small portion of the money to avoid suspicion from local authorities. Hank goes into the woods while Jacob waits behind, pretending to change the tire. Elderly farmer Dwight Stephanson approaches Jacob and asks him if he came across a fox that ran off with a chicken. Jacob, thinking that their cover is blown, bludgeons Dwight. Hank arrives and says Dwight is dead and they need to split up and meet later whilst he moves the body. But Dwight regains consciousness, so Hank suffocates him. He then uses the snowmobile to drive the body off a bridge, making the murder resemble an accidental death.

FBI Agent Renkins
FBI Agent Renkins: For someone who's been properly trained, there are many ways to detect a liar. The shifty eyes of detective novels have a certain basis in fact. A wooden or stilted tone. Gestures that seem either slightly robotic or else unnecessarily expansive. Details tend to be vague, slippery. Sometimes the suspect will cover his mouth with his hand when he speaks. Did you notice anything like that in the guy you shot today?
