Starsky & Hutch Season 2 Episode 13 Little Girl Lost Dec 25, 1976
It's the Christmas season, and while Starsky is happily getting into the festivities, Hutch is far more skeptical about people's sudden goodwill over the period. Responding to a call of petty shop-lifting, the pair meet Molly, a twelve-year-old tomboy, who lives with her father, a recently released convict turned alcoholic. But when soon after the girl's father is murdered by his two former partners-in-crime, who are determined to get their hands on the stolen diamond cache he went to prison for, Hutch finds himself taking Molly in for Christmas.
Unfortunately, with Molly being the only one who now knows the whereabouts of the diamonds, the two crooks who killed her father are now after her.
An elderly man and woman are killed in a marked crosswalk by a hit and run driver. Friday and Gannon do an extensive investigation. He receives a light sentence, even though he has a drunk driving record dating back to his high school days. Their frustration is compounded when they have another unfortunate run in with the man several months later.moreless
