E220: Muriel Baldridge

Seventeen-year-old Muriel Baldridge had the whole world ahead of her. She and friends had made the most of the June evening, going to a softball game, a movie, and then to the local carnival. They walked together up to the West Prestonsburg Bridge in Prestonsburg, Kentucky. Immediately on the other side of the bridge was Muriel’s home. She said she would be fine walking the rest of the distance on her own, saying goodbye to her friends, who walked back toward town and the carnival. But, in that short distance, someone took Muriel’s life-- and there was no shortage of potential perpetrators.
