Storyline

A young woman is found stabbed to death in the trunk of a car, the MO that of the serial murderer who terrorized Manhattan some eight years earlier (the summer of '69). The main suspect as the "Clothesline Killer" was shot and killed by Kojak while trying to escape. Theo (and his bosses) then question whether or not he killed the right man, especially after more bodies start turning up. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Goofs

The 3-piece suit with bell bottom pants was late 1970's menswear, not applicable to the flash-back to 1969. Kojak's suit would've been straight-legged and shorter hem, most likely without a vest and with a much less fitted jacket. See more »
