On the morning of February 9, 1960, Adolph "Ad" Coors drove his car to his family's business, the Coors Brewery in Golden, Colorado. Only a couple of hours later his car was found running with the doors open on the Turkey Creek Bridge. Ad Coors was nowhere to be found. A ransom note arrived the next day demanding money in exchange for his safe return, but the kidnapper mysteriously disappeared without collecting the money and without returning Ad Coors. In a massive manhunt that stretched all the way to New Jersey and Vancouver, the FBI uncovered a sinister plot.
