Background information and notes
- This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Chad MacDonald case.
- The name of the girl killed in this episode, Sara Teasdale, is also the name of an American poet who lived from 8 August 1884 to 29 January 1933. Her works were quite popular in the early 1900s; death was a major theme. Plagued by poor health most of her life, she committed suicide by drug overdose.
