2. She disappeared in California, so it's probably unlikely that an Illinois Police Department would have her missing poster up there.

On a very similar note, I always loved the scene in the Michaela Garecht segment when Michaela's friend is sitting with the sketch artist, and the sketch of the suspect is already hanging on the wall behind them. I know they did it as an interesting way to introduce the sketch and get the picture of the suspect in your mind, but the discontinuity always throws me a bit.

I think it's more of a LOL than a WTF...

Woman: What are you shipping?
Man: Well... what does it say?
Woman: It says clothes.
Man: Yeah thats it... clothes..

Way to give yourself away ya goof!

I was watching the 90-minute Alcatraz special not too long ago and they did a brief segment where they profiled a couple of wanted prison escapees. RS mentioned a guy named Carl Alfred Eder who was convicted of murdering a woman and her four children, and then said he escaped after "walking away from a minimum security work detail".

WTF?! Why would a guy who murdered a mother and four children be on a minimum security work detail?!

This is a pretty horrible case and I'm surprised UM never did a full segment on it. Sadly, Carl Alfred Eder has still never been found since escaping in 1974:

Apologies if this Case has already been mentioned on this thread and I can't even remember the names of the Victims. The story of the 3 Teenagers who had that Car accident in 1992. 2 of them died and the 3rd survived but doesn't remember anything. I think the Boy's body was found several months later - The whole thing was very suss. Anyway my "What the?" moment for this story was when they stopped by one of the parents house that night prior to accident. The father asked what their plans were and one of them answered "Just Drinking and Driving around". DRINKING and Driving around!! and the Father let them go! Worst parenting ever!

Yeah, that was the Arnold Archambeau/Ruby Bruguier case. The father of Tracy, the third girl in the car, was watching their baby, and when they all couple showed up to pick the child up, his response was pretty much:

"You've been drinking. Why don't you let the baby stay here, and then drive home and come pick her up tomorrow?"

So he was obviously concerned about letting a baby get into a car with an intoxicated driver, but didn't seem to have any problems with his own daughter being in the car .

I am a US citizen, but I believe that such behavior can warrant a search. And they do have the authority to open mail under suspicion. It was pretty obvious that he was hiding something when he didn't even know what was in the box he was shipping and it was on a border town where drug trafficking is huge.

On a side note, searching people because of suspicious/nervous behavior has saved lives. Here's a story I have heard numerous times, but I would have to go searching for any articles on it to find the particulars (I've forgotten which city it was, but I thought it was L.A.): Several years ago in the wake of 9/11, a man had a car full of explosives and was going to set them off in a big city. His nervous behavior alerted police at a state border checkpoint and they searched the car and of course stopped him. If they hadn't searched him, many people would have no doubt been killed. I believe in constitutional rights of course, but in the name of safety, there are times when I believe searches are quite justified.

Yes I def agree. You always have to listen to your "gut instinct". Suspicious behavior usually means "guilty" behavior (thats what my dad told me as a kid) if that makes any sense!

There are a bunch of LOL moments, but for the first time I just watched the segment where the radio DJs made up an on-air confession to murder! OH MY GOD these guys were such bastards. The worst was that the DJs seemed so sincere in saying it wasn't a hoax.

~ What makes it even worse is parents were calling in thinking that their missing daughter was the one who was killed. And if I'm not mistaken they got off with just a slap on the wrist!

We do, and that exchange with its accompanying circumstances are enough to justify a law enforcement search (which doesn't necessarily require a warrant).

See:

Illinois v. Gates
Terry v. Ohio

They were taken off the air for ten days, then came back to work alng with a new DJ: the guy who faked the call during the hoax! I think I remember during the update RS said something along the lines of "the FCC ultimately decided to take no action."

I still think the Scott Rossiter segment was the most ludicrous bunch of circumstances I've ever seen in one case: police officer shot IN the parking lot of the police station and suspect is on the lam, sudden weird update with the suspect's remains being removed from some random field in the middle of nowhere, and then the police saying, "We'll probably never know what happened to him." Meaning, no one "will ever know" what happened to Scott Rossiter OR the suspect, as he never had a chance to be tried.

And they're still on the air to this day. My friends listen to them and I can't stand it! I got a few to stop after I told them about the hoax.

That was so scary and unexpected the first time. Every time after that it's STILL freaky.

Another one: In the Gus Hoffman segment, people let his mother know they saw bikers threaten him with chains...in the middle of CROWDED INTERSECTION. I know bikers are tough stuff especially in the 70s, but NO ONE called the police to report a kid who was obviously not a biker being threatened physically? I would have called from home later where no one would see or hear me reporting it.
