I never knew Charles Geschke was kidnapped. He was released after 4 days of captivity unharmed. The kidnappers were sentenced to life imprisonment for their crime.

Wow, what a story! Reading this kept me on the edge of my seat. For convenience here's the links to the other parts. Well worth reading. Thanks, wklee.
