"Serial Murders"
AIRDATE: 03.16.85


WHAT SAID:  

An officer's cocaine problem endangers Hooker as they pursue suspects in a string of cross-country serial murders.

SYNOPSIS:  

While investigating a murder-robbery, Hooker encounters one of his former students, Sgt. Leigh Stockwell. At the scene, Leigh obtains a description of the two male suspects. The investigation turns up a pattern that Hooker believes is a serial murder case. At another murder scene, Leigh appears to be tired and weak and excuses herself to go to the restroom. Stacy follows and later tells Corrigan that she believes Leigh may be using cocaine. Tracking down the latest victim's wife, Mrs. Daniels, to San Diego, local police discover her murdered and the house ransacked. Leigh and Hooker go to San Diego where they find two men who match the description of their suspects. But the men, Burnett and Jenkins, spot them and run. Although Leigh has a clear shot, she becomes disoriented so Hooker pursues them on foot. Hooker catches Burnett but is overpowered and falls over a ledge. Hooker is angry at Leigh, realizing that all they have to go on is a crumpled bank book containing the name Kimberly Johnson. Back at the L.C.P.D., Leigh tells Hooker she has a sugar imbalance and just needs to eat right, but Hooker finds Leigh getting ready to use cocaine. In the meantime, Stacy has found an address for Kimberly Johnson. Romano, entering her boutique, finds it ransacked with no signs of Kimberly. They try Kimberly's home next, and when they arrive they hear Kimberly screaming and they catch Burnett jumping from the balcony. Burnett grabs Leigh, but Hooker is able to wound him. Later, Leigh gets help.
