On July 2, 1966, 21-year old Ann Miller (from Lombard), 19-year old Patricia Blough and 19-year old Renee Bruhl leave their homes in Illinois in order to travel to the Indiana Dunes State Park.
After taking a spot on the beach next to Lake Michigan, the three women venture into the water, leaving all of their belongings behind. Eyewitnesses would recall seeing them climb into a boat with an unidentified man before they vanished without a trace.
There are a number of different theories about why they went missing: Did the women take off voluntarily? Were they murdered over possible connections to notorious criminal Silas Jayne and his “horse syndicate”? “The Trail Went Cold” will explore the truly baffling disappearance of the “Indiana Dunes Women.”
