Clint is nearing the driveway on his walk home.

A dark car drives up and stops quickly. Two men get out and grab Clint. They tie him up and lock him in the trunk of the car, then speed off. The entire event took under two minutes.

The kidnappers drive to their hideout, located about ten miles out of town. On the way there, they stop for a bathroom break off a dirt road.

From the trunk, Clint can hear yelling. Then the car drives off. Clint did not know a serial killer stole the car from the kidnappers
