The identity of the Boston Strangler is still in d

by fungirl503 on Apr 1, 2007

it tells the story of Roy Smith, a disadvantaged black man who was convicted and sent to prison for 12 years for committing a murder that he may very well have been innocent of because it could have been the work of the Boston Strangler. Unfortunately, there is really no way to tell for sure one way or the other. The identity of the Boston Strangler is still in dispute, Al DeSalvo confessed to the crimes, and the killings did stop when he went to prison but in recounting details of the crime scenes he seemed to know little more than what was published in the newspapers. I wish this book had a little more fact and a little less speculation, but despite that it was a remarkably good read.
