While Vic goes native to get the name of a man in photos with the dead woman, Longmire talks to the young woman's parents, brother, and a go-between. He's also guessing his daughter Cady has a boyfriend and he wonders who. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Did You Know?


The printed message is in Plattdeutsch (Low German), the spoken language of Old Order Amish and Mennonites. Sheriff Longmire spoke in first year level Hochdeutsch (High German), the standard German language taught in the Unites States and probably elsewhere. Without special training, students and former students of the latter would not be able to recognize and translate the printed message, except for the word "mich" (me). See more »

Caleb: How do you know what rumspringa is?

A Sad Story
12 December 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A young woman (around twenty) is found in a field by a young boy. Paper money is flying around. She has blunt force trauma. The investigation leads to the fact that she was an exotic dancer (stripper) at a kind of sleazy bar. This leads to several suspects. It also turns out that she was on rumspringa, the Mennonite practice of sending their children out into the world to experience life away from the religious tenets. She and her brother have and some others have been living in a broken down old house, barely getting by. Longmire must wade through the religious roadblocks and approach this case differently.
