Description
"DeSalvo Is the Strangler!" declared the headlines after handyman Albert DeSalvo confessed to eleven brutal rape-murders that terrorized Boston from 1962 to 1964. The repeat sex offender boasted he had raped an additional two thousand women. His depraved story became the subject of a bestselling book and major Hollywood movie. But, it turns out, DeSalvo was not the Boston Strangler. This detailed investigation exposes the true DeSalvo as a pathological liar, burglar, and rapist whose hunger for celebrity drove him to false confessions. The Boston Strangler reveals that the stranglings were actually committed by at least eight-possibly eleven-different killers. In all likelihood, DeSalvo was not among them. In an eye-opening update that explores stunning DNA findings, a shocking re-autopsy, and expert profiling evidence, journalist Susan Kelly uncovers the facts behind a savage, unsolved case that continues to haunt and fascinate.
