Hays looks back at the aftermath of the 1980 Purcell case, including possible evidence left behind at an outdoor hangout for local kids; as attention focuses on two conspicuous suspects, the parents of the missing children receive a cryptic note.
Did You Know?
The date of the disappearance of the children has been established as Friday, November 7, 1980 (and also they may have been contacted by the killer on Halloween night also a Friday in 1980). When asked where he was that night, Lucy's cousin, Dan (the uncle of the Purcell children) said that he went to a bar and then went home and watched CHiPS on TV. In October/November 1980, CHiPs was broadcast on NBC on Sunday nights from 8-9 PM. If not a mistake in the writing, then the Detectives needed to question the character further about what he was watching on the night of the children's disappearance a it could not have been CHiPS.
