Apprehending a Fugitive: A Thanksgiving to Remember

On Saturday, November 15, 2003, at 5:40 p.m., 20-year veteran Officer Greg Campbell had a plan. He would work for six hours and then take off early to fly to Oakland, California, with his 11-year-old son. Campbell had obtained tickets for an Oakland Raiders football game on Sunday and was looking forward to a weekend getaway with his son. All Campbell needed to do was leave work on time and everything else would fall into place. Unfortunately, that weekend getaway never materialized. Instead, the evening turned into a nightmare and a tragedy for Campbell and the entire Burbank Police Department.
