The Mystery of Anna Gale

Copyright 1998
43 minutes
A Captain Underhill mystery

When little Anna Gale Storm is abducted by a stranger in a white van, the police– and the media — spring into action. Bulletins are issued. The police swarm. News and police helicopters hover near the twin bridges. Anna Gale’s mother, Betsy Storm, is hysterical but must be questioned. The police are desperate, frustrated by the fact that the only eyewitness is a frightened, easily confused, 5 year old named Jody Higgins.

A parent’s worst nightmare, this story is based in part on a true Cape Cod incident. The locale is Point Isabella, Cotuit, off Old Post Road, where, legend has it, Bluebeard the Pirate buried his girlfriend, Hannah Screechum, after he caught her snooping. Now little Anna Gale Storm, by virtue of her recent kidnapping from the same spot, is in line to take her place alongside Hannah’s. Unless Captain Underhill can get to her in time…
