Welcome to "Crime Scene," a series of weekly videos about unsolved cases in the Baltimore area. The series is hosted and produced by former television crime reporter, Matt Jablow. We'll bring you a new video each Monday on the Baltimore Crime Beat blog.
The first video focuses on the bizarre unsolved abduction of Vi Ripken, mother of Orioles great Cal Ripken, Jr. It was just over two years ago when Mrs. Ripken was shoved in the trunk of her car and driven around overnight, with her abductor pausing from time to time to offer her food and light cigarettes for her.
