Summary, etc.:
The evening of November 17, 1978, should have been like any other for the four young crew members closing the Burger Chef at 5725 Crawfordsville Road in Speedway, Indiana. After serving customers and locking up the doors for the night, the kids began their regular cleanup to ready the restaurant for the following day. But then something went horribly wrong. Just before midnight, someone muscled into the place, robbed the store of $581 and kidnapped the four employees. Over the next two days, investigators searched in vain for the missing crew members before their bodies were discovered more than twenty miles away. The killer or killers were never caught. Join Julie Young on an exploration of one of the most baffling cold cases in Indiana History.
