Kidnap Victim Called From Grocery

Susan Smith entered the Albertsons grocery in a small Montana town Sunday night and asked to use the phone. She wanted to call a local pastor, she told the deli manager. Instead she called her family in Spokane and uttered chilling words: “I’ve been abducted and I need you to call the FBI.” Her telephone call redirected the massive manhunt for fugitive Mitchell L. Walck, pictured accused of shooting at police in North Idaho and kidnapping Smith. He remains on the lam. Employees at the Glendive, Mont., grocery store described the 62-year-old Smith as calm after a harrowing weekend. She was kidnapped Saturday from her Rathdrum Mountain ranch at gunpoint/Nicole Hensley, SR. More here.
