Episode #90: Ed Maps - Missing (1962)

There was a fire set ablaze to the home of the Maps who lived in Stroudsburg. Christine and Julia Maps were found when emergency workers rushed to the scene. It was apparent immediately that this was not an accident. They were hoping to speak to the husband but he had disappeared. Did Edward Maps do such heinous acts to his only family and flee? Or did the police just hyper focus on Edward because he was missing?
