In the capsule today…
We find Tim McCarver and Al Micheals getting ready for Game 3 of the World Series at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. At 5:04PM the Loma Prieta Earthquake struck, and the television feed was dramatically lost.
We find serial killer Ted Bundy heading for the electric chair in Florida. He was later cremated in Gainesville, Florida, and his ashes then scattered at an undisclosed location in the Cascade Range of Washington State.
