The Union County Nightmare
After a weeklong national alert and a frantic series of fruitless tips and searches set off by Susan Smith's vivid accounts, the hunt for the carjacking kidnapper of 3-year-old Michael and 14-month-old Alexander ended in Union County, South Carolina, the place where the tragedy began. Authorities accused Smith of murdering the children after police found her car with the boys inside at the bottom of a local lake. The arrest shocked the community and appeared to confirm some of the worst infanticidal suspicions of early doubters of Smith's tale.
