Could a missing man accused of killing his girlfriend be responsible for the Burger Chef murders? Or is he yet another victim?
This episode covers one of the most confounding theories in the Burger Chef case. In 1981, Indiana State Police detectives Jim Cramer and Donovan Lindsay received a call from a jailhouse counselor. A young man was claiming to have information on the Burger Chef murders — an eyewitness account, in fact.
Allen Pruitt went on to tell police he saw two men abduct the employees from the restaurant three years before. And he named names, telling detectives exactly who he saw force the four victims out of the Burger Chef.
But revelations from yet another informant ultimately throw everything about Pruitt's story into question.
