The Los Angeles Times story about Kristin Smart: by Peter King
This article is a bit long but everyone should read this at least once in their life. Written by Peter King, it appeared in the Los Angeles Times about 10 years after Kristin vanished.
Peter knows how to write a story and he basically puts the reader in a 'time machine' and takes you back to May of 1996 and the night Kristin vanished.
Very thorough and very well written.
