The Boston Strangler

Update: 2022-09-042


From 1962 to 1964, the Boston Strangler terrorized the Boston area, praying mostly on older and vulnerable women. The police eventually connected the murders due to the signature methods that this predator used. Many of the women were strangled with a piece of their own clothing, and the killer tied a knot, and often a bow. 11 murders were eventually connected to the Boston Strangler. A man named Albert DeSalvo eventually confessed to all 11 of the murders. But did he actually commit them?

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the infamous killer who became known as the Boston Strangler. Albert DeSalvo was undoubtedly a bad man. He was in prison for other crimes when he confessed to being the Boston Strangler. His other crime sprees earned him the monikers of "The Measuring Man" and "The Green man." But many people did not believe that DeSalvo was the Boston Strangler even though he was able to provide a lot of information on the murders. A fellow inmate named George Nassar has been looked at by many as the real perpetrator. And some people believe not all 11 murders were committed by the same person. In recent years DNA has shed some light on Albert DeSalvo's connection to the murders. But, for many, quite a bit of mystery still surrounds this case.
