Description

A farmer was taken hostage by a convicted felon at the end of a two-day, multi-county crime spree that drew headlines across the state. Law enforcement officials kept the lid on the whereabouts of the farmer and his story and that frustrated media from the area that was looking for him. I found him in a day with conventional and unconventional investigative techniques and produced a Sunday feature that appeared five days after the farmer was taken hostage.
