Case 190

The Butcher Baker

(Part 2)

In June 1983, Cindy Paulson ran out onto a highway in Anchorage, barefoot and handcuffed. She was the prized prey of a prolific serial killer who was plaguing the region, and had escaped his plans to hunt her down in the Alaskan wilderness – something he had done with many other women. 

But police weren’t convinced of Cindy’s story and the man she accused – a local baker by the name of Robert Hansen – was free to go.
