Young Skeegie, Old Sparky and J. Edgar – Episode #2 (of 4)

Murder, Mischief & Mayhem!

05-09-2021 • 20 mins

Four days pass after the kidnapping. The search team has expanded to include the local volunteers, the Sheriff’s office, FBI agents from the Miami office and other public and private agencies. The search fans out miles beyond the town of Princeton – but produces no results. The child has not been returned nor has the kidnapper communicated anything new. One day later, on June 3, 1938, a private plane bound from Washington, D.C. lands at Wilcox Field, the airport serving the Greater Miami area. J. Edgar Hoover, the Director of the FBI, steps onto the tarmac. With a need to boost the flagging credibility of his agency, Hoover decides to take personal control of the case in the field. That includes participating in the questioning of a suspect, Frampy Braxton, a close friend of Bailey Cash. The local FBI agent and Hoover “sweat” Braxton in a prolong interrogation in an attempt to force a confession – with mixed results.
