212: Dateline: In a Lonely Place
FAM! THIS IS APPARENTLY DATELINE'S 'MOST CHILLING EPISODE'! ALSO, KEITH SWEARS, IT'S PRETTY AMAZING.
Chris Smith was living his dream southern California life: close family, great friends, running a small business with trusted colleague. So when he emails his family to say he's giving it all up to travel the world with a, wait for it, Playboy Playmate, his family is confused, but happy for him. But when a year goes by and Chris's only contact is sporadic emails--never a phone call--the family gets suspicious and begins to unravel the real story of what is going on.
