"48 Hours Mystery" featured a terribly creepy true-crime case this week. An Australian teenager disappeared and was thought to be the victim of a serial killer. But -- guess what! -- apparently she was just hiding with her older boyfriend for FIVE YEARS, even while the trial for her supposed murder was going on.
I saw a similar plot on "Close to Home" this season, and now I'm thinking those writers just got lazy and ripped off the headlines -- only headlines from Down Under. Eh, the American viewing audience will never know, right?
