In September 1974, the Cowden family went camping in Oregon. Richard, Belinda, and their two children, 5-year-old David and 5-month-old Melissa were excited to spend quality family time together. But this idyllic family vacation turned into a search and rescue effort when all four members of the family went missing. Seven months later their bodies were discovered about seven miles from their campsite.

A tantalizing suspect emerged but police could never put it all together. Was it this suspect that murdered the Cowden family or someone else unknown who continues to roam the area?
