16 Reasons People Are Talking About Netflix’s True Crime Doc ‘Abducted In Plain Sight’
The first abduction (BECAUSE THERE WERE TWO) occurred on October 17, 1974.
The morning of October 17, 1974, B asked Mary Ann if he could take Jan horseback riding after school. Mary Ann was initially hesitant because it was a school night (AND HE WOULD BE ALONE WITH HER DAUGHTER AND THEY ALREADY HAD CONCERNS). But he was persistent, so okey dokey, sounds fine, B! Jan left with him on the afternoon of October 17, and just … didn’t come back. He gave Jan another “allergy pill”, staged a fake kidnapping so it looked like they’d both been taken, and ran off to Mexico with the 12-year-old girl. She woke up in the back of a moving motor home, bound to the bed in the back.
