Confessions of the Boston Strangler (2014)
The case of The Boston Strangler is one of the most notorious and controversial in American criminal history.
In the early 1960’s, a serial rapist and killer was terrorizing female residents of Boston, Massachusetts … Albert Desalvo would eventually confess to the grisly murders of the 13 women but his confessions at the time, left more questions than real answers and his sudden murder in prison only served to solidify that confusion and doubt.
Terrific full-length documentary from IDFilms that delves into The Boston Strangler case and delivers a powerful coup de grace towards the end that removes most doubt as to who was responsible for the crimes.
“More than 50 years after the killing spree that paralysed a city, this film sheds light on a confession that continues to be shrouded in scepticism and debate,” said Kevin Bennett, EVP and General Manager of Investigation Discovery. “By bringing modern day technology, new evidence is provided to one of the most notorious cases of a serial killer; shedding new light on the mystery and raising even more questions..” tvbythenumbers
