  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • This episode appears to ripped from the headlines of the Susan Taraskiewicz case. Susan was a Northwest Airlines baggage supervisor who kept a diary detailing the sexual harassment she suffered at the hands of coworkers. She was last seen on September 13, 1992 when she left Logan International Airport. Thirty hours later, her body was found inside the trunk of her car outside an auto body shop in Revere, Massachusetts. After an FBI team declared that the murder required two or three people, the investigation focused upon Northwest Airlines workers who had sexually harassed and physically threatened Taraskiewicz, who was a ramp supervisor. The same workers were engaged in a credit card theft ring, and before her death, at least one worker had claimed to others that Taraskiewicz was a snitch. Her murder remains unsolved.
