In less complicated days, they cheered the same teams at Vineland High School, learned from the same teachers, walked the same halls. But Paul Letizia, the son of a Vineland vegetable farmer, and Samuel C. Williams, the high school lineman, neither chatted in the gym nor shared a soda in the school cafeteria during those days in the early 1980s. They would not meet until two occasions in 1989, when Letizia was a police officer and Williams was running from the police. In the second confrontation, Williams - convicted on a drug charge and wanted on a probation violation - met up with Letizia, an eight-year police veteran, in a muddy ravine.

"We knew something happened to her. We just didn't know what, and that not knowing was really terrible for us," said her mother, Linda, who had led an aggressive campaign to find her daughter.
