Boston Strangler

The Boston Strangler is the name given to the murderer of 13 women in the Boston, Massachusetts, area during the early 1960s. The crimes were attributed to Albert DeSalvo based on his confession, details revealed in court during a separate case,[1] and DNA evidence linking him to the final victim.

In the years following DeSalvo's conviction - but prior to the emergence of this DNA evidence - various parties investigating the crimes have suggested that the murders (sometimes referred to as the "Silk Stocking Murders") were committed by more than one person.
