From 1962 to 1964, women in Boston lived in fear of the infamous Strangler, who committed 13 known murders — crimes that included vicious sexual assaults and bizarre stagings of the victims’ bodies. After the largest investigation in the city's history, Albert DeSalvo confessed. Despite DeSalvo’s full confession and imprisonment, authorities never put him on trial for the murders. And more than 50 years later, doubts continue to surround the case. Was DeSalvo really the killer? Was there more than one Strangler? And did the Boston PD do everything necessary to stop the murderer? Stranglers, the new podcast from Earwolf and Investigation Discovery, is a fascinating investigation of the Boston Strangler.
