19 Jan Episode 2: Anyone Could be Next
Anyone Could be Next
As the list of indiscriminate victims and crimes grow, the residents of Los Angeles begin to become more and more fearful of this unknown assailant.
It seems that the suspect’s cooling-off period is becoming shorter than it previously was. One of the key points that shows a shorter cooling-off period is when the suspect commits three crimes in one night, murder, rape and robbery.
We are taken through Gil Carrillo and his partner Frank Salerno’s personal experiences with the many crimes committed by the Night Stalker and how they both dealt with the tremendous stress. But, hard work pays off when yet more footprints are found at different crime scenes, some seemingly unrelated at first.
The footprint becomes a big point of interest and we find out that it is the footprint of a very rare shoe at the time. The detectives also receive an extremely important clue found in a vehicle that the suspect had stolen. The clue in question is a business card from a dental office. Armed with the suspect’s x-rays and appointment history, the detectives are confident that this might be the moment that everyone has been waiting for.
Will journalists, jurisdiction, faulty evidence handling and other speedbumps prolong the arrest of the killer?
