On November 17, 1978, four young workers vanished from a fast food restaurant in Speedway, Indiana. Two days later, their bodies were found in the woods of Johnson County. The Burger Chef murders remain unsolved to this day. We still don't know who killed employees Jayne Friedt, Ruth Shelton, Danny Davis, and Mark Flemmonds, or why. It has been 45 years.
In this episode of "You Never Can Forget," we'll be speaking about the case with a friend and fellow researcher. He will take us through his thoughts on the FBI files released this past year.
