"Night Ripper"
AIRDATE: 01.29.86

WHAT SAID:  

Hooker's under pressure to solve a grisly series of sex murders.

SYNOPSIS:  

Arriving at the scene of the brutal murder of college student Anne Banning, Hooker recognizes the method of murder as that of the Night Ripper, a serial killer who went on a murder spree four years earlier and was never captured. A search of Anne's room produces a pair of cowboy boots belonging to her boyfriend, Sonny, and a number of Co-Ed Fashion magazines. Stacy decides to check out the publication, but her inquiries meet a dead end when she is told by Doug Richard that Anne was never employed there not did she ever work for the publication. Meanwhile, Hooker and Corrigan track Sonny down at his job and place him under arrest while he attempts to flee. He admits to having been there the night of the murder, but fled in horror when he found her dead. In the meantime, another girl has been found murdered and the feeling is that the magazine has been involved somehow. A background check is conducted on Doug Richards and it is learned that for the past four years he has been confined to a mental institution. They arrive at Richards' home to confront him and find him dressed as a woman. After a few tense moments, Hooker persuades Richards to give up, and takes him into custody.
