In this episode we learn more about Teryl from her sister, Meryl.
A few months after Teryl Orcutt was murdered, a Florida Highway Patrol Trooper abducted a woman he’d stopped and then killed her before hiding her body in a remote area off the highway. He was looked at on Teryl’s case due to similarities. Also in this episode, I speak with a woman who had a similar experience, but she got away.
A week after Teryl went missing, her body was found about four miles down the same County Road where her abandoned car had been spotted by witnesses.
On January 21, 1990, Teryl Orcutt’s 1989 red 2 door Ford Thunderbird was found abandoned on the side of County Road 218 in Middleburg Florida. The car was running, lights were on, purse inside vehicle, yet no sign of the driver. This season covers Teryl’s unsolved homicide.
