    Hooker & Romano pursue a brown van after they see it driving recklessly. Betsy Campbell is a student who is a prostitute at night and she is with a new girl in the van. The van ends up crashing. The crooks run off as Hooker & Romano pull the girls out. Betsy is ok but the other girl is dead from strangulation. They take Betsy to the station. Hooker tries to get some information about her. Mrs. Campbell comes by to pick her up and tells her things are going to change. The next day we see Betsy change from a hooker look to a nice looking high school student. We also find out that woman was not her mother. Her mother lives out of town and is sending her money. Hooker sets up a sting with some of the women officers going undercover as hookers. They find out that Betsy gave them false information about her address and phone number. They check the first number she gave them and they find out it's to a lingerie shop. They find out she is just pretending to be her mother. She does tell them what high school she attends. Corrigan talks to a Mr. Fiker, the depo supervisor. He is one of the stranglers, but Corrigan doesn't know it. He says he will post drawings of the stranglers and then he rips them up. Hooker and Romano look for Betsy at school at where she lives. They don't find her, but they find out she is going by Betsy Morgan & Betsy Campbell. They also find out she is from Fresno. Betsy comes in to ask her fake mother for some money to leave. She also talks about her abusive father. Meanwhile Corrigan is thinking about taking a teaching job and leaving the force. Hooker is called by the fake mother and she tells him Betsy is at the bus depo waiting for the money. Hooker races over there, but the crooks are already chasing her down. They arrive in the alley and the crooks take off. ONe of them is hit and killed by a car. The other guy gets away. They are able to take Betsy back to the station. They identify the dead guy as Joe Rask. They also find out that Betsy was molested by her dad. Hooker talks to Betsy and she really doesn't care about her life. Hooker sets her straight and she asks for his help. Stacey takes her in at her apartment until they can find her a place to stay. Mr. Fiker/ the strangler drops by the station looking for Betsy. He sees her leaving with Stacey. He follows them to her apartment. Hooker, Corrigan & Romano talk to a man where the strangler was seen. The man says he saw him and he liked to do magic. Corrigan had seen Fiker do magic when he spoke with him. They all put it together that he was going to Stacey's apartment to get Betsy. He breaks in and is aobut to kill them. Stacey kicks him and Betsy escapes with handcuffs on her. Hooker & Romano chase him into the boat yard. He throws Betsy into the water. Ramano dives in and saves her. Hooker fights the crooks and hits him into the water. Betsy is safe. She decides to pursue swimming at school. She has won many trophies over the years. They all go to see her at a swimming meet and her swim teacher is going to take her in. Corrigan decides to decline the teaching offer. This is one of my favorite episodes. I have always love Jill Whitlow since I saw her in Night of the Creeps. She does an excellent job playing Betsy. She and Heather Locklear have a few scenes together. You will never see two more beautiful faces on the same screen. Wow!moreless
