AIRDATE: 03.09.85


WHAT SAID:  

Hooker's vacation with his children is interrupted by a race-track robbery that leaves an officer dead.

SYNOPSIS:  

Hooker's vacation plans are upset when he is called to investigate a racetrack robbery and the murder of a police officer. Corrigan, who was riding with the officer, got a good look at the suspects, three men and a woman dressed as ambulance attendants, from composite drawings. A gun, recovered at the scene, is traced back to Dale Hunter. When Hooker and Romano go to his home, they discover a bloodied shirt and a woman's garment monogrammed with the name Stephanie. In the meantime, Hunter has turned up dead, so Hooker and Romano question Stephanie who refuses to tell them anything. The case gets more involved when the police officer's widow receives a call telling her to look under her welcome mat where she finds $10,000. In the interim, the ambulance has been found and two men have been identified as the drivers. Walker and Redding, along with a male nurse, James Rourke. Hooker and Romano return to talk to Stephanie and find her dead, but they spot Redding speeding away from her home. They pursue him and eventually he is apprehended. Hooker gets Redding to confess to the crime and he gives them Rourke's address. When they arrive, they discover Rourke has departed for Mexico. At the airport, there are no signs of Rourke, but a man in dark glasses tries to run out an emergency exit. Hooker is shocked to discover the man is Don Burnett, the security guard at the racetrack. He confesses to the murders and Hooker can now take his vacation.
