The Red Pickup Truck

Real Crime - - Unsolved Case -

On 3 March, a woman rang the po­lice claim­ing to have seen the boys in a pickup truck two days af­ter the dis­ap­pear­ance. She had been work­ing in a store in Brownsville, 50 kilo­me­tres away from the aban­doned Mer­cury Mon­tego, when the truck had pulled up. Two men came into the store, buy­ing var­i­ous snacks. She later iden­ti­fied them as Ted Wei­her and Jackie Huett. An­other man, Wil­liam Ster­ling, got out to make a phone call and took Jackie with him. Jackie’s fam­ily would later ques­tion the va­lid­ity of this state­ment, be­cause Jackie was ter­ri­fied of phones and al­ways got Ted Wei­her to make a call for him. How­ever, Joseph Shones dis­tinctly re­mem­bered two sets of head­lights, one from a truck, out on the moun­tain pass. If this was true, who owned the truck?
