First up: the 1980 kidnapping of a Minnesota teacher and her 8-year-old daughter by a man who had been in her high-school math class 15 years earlier. The two were held in a closet in his home for 53 days before they managed to escape. The perpetrator also killed a 6-year-old potential witness to the abduction. Deborah Roberts reports.
