ON THE COVER

November 01, 1987

The puzzling 1979 murder of a teacher and the disappearance of her two children from an affluent Philadelphia suburb prompted what ranks as one of the most massive homicide investigations in the U.S. The FBI and Pennsylvania police spent seven years solving the case.

The bizarre story became the basis for Joseph Wambaugh's best seller, "Echoes in the Darkness," now turned into a five-hour miniseries to be broadcast Sunday and Monday nights on CBS.

Peter Coyote, Gary Cole, Cindy Pickett and Treat Williams (pictured on the cover) are in the cast, along with Stockard Channing and Robert Loggia.

Sunday's airtime is 9-11 p.m., with the conclusion 8-11 p.m. Monday.
