A PRAYER:Phone Call Pointed Investigators To Evidence (AP, October 24, 2002)
In the end, one of the men arrested in connection with the sniper shootings may have given investigators their best clue.
An ominous call to the sniper task force tip line urged authorities to check out an incident in "Montgomery," triggering an investigative chain that led to the capture of two men, a law enforcement source told The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity.
The call led investigators from Montgomery, Ala., to Tacoma, Wash., to a darkened rest stop off I-70 in Frederick County, Md., where the two men were taken into custody.
