Format Price Qty

Put on your detective hat and uncover the facts and myths about the Boston strangler. Starting in 1962, eleven women living in and around the Boston area had been murdered in similar, and similarly brutal, ways. Many of these women had been sexually assaulted. Several had been stabbed. All had been strangled. Topics discussed include the victims, the atmosphere of Boston, Massachusetts, at the time of the murders, and the man who confessed to the murders, Albert DeSalvo. The evidence against DeSalvo, reasons DeSalvo confessed to murders he may not have committed, theories about who the Boston Strangler really was, and DNA evidence are also highlighted. Features include a Tools and Clues section that highlights research tools, technology, and investigative methods, a timeline, a glossary, selected bibliography, further readings, places to visit, source notes, and an index. Unsolved Mysteries is a series in Essential Library, an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
