The call from dispatch crackled across Indiana State Trooper Jim Cramer’s police radio. It was early on the morning of November 18, 1978. Four employees had gone missing from a Burger Chef in Speedway, a town of 12,500 on the outskirts of Indianapolis.

When Cramer showed up for work his commander filled him in on the latest. The missing had been abducted between 11 p.m. and midnight. Whoever took them had pulled off the main road onto a lonely gravel path in the woods, the kind that local teens might’ve used as a make-out spot.

There, they were murdered.
