In 1973 two teachers were murdered, one in New York City, and the other in Indiana. While both murders were extremely brutal, they were covered very differently. A Catholic school teacher named Roseann Quinn was murdered in New York City. Her murder became the basis for the book, "Looking for Mr. Goodbar" and later a movie by the same name. 26-year-old Ann Kline was a mathematics professor who was murdered in Evansville, Indiana.
Join Mike and Morf as they discuss these two cases. Roseann's murder received extensive coverage. But, the way she was portrayed, a Catholic school teacher by day and a bar-hopper by night, angered many. Ann's murder received much less coverage which, in some part, may have been because it occurred in Indiana rather than New York City. The result in each case was the same, a well-respected teacher was murdered and thousands of kids were robbed of their wisdom, guidance, and teaching.
