foot steps of the boston strangler

Beacon Hill Alley of Death
Following the Steps of the Boston Stranger

"Albert Henry DeSalvo (September 3, 1931 - November 25, 1973) was a serial killer active in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, in the early 1960s. Dubbed the Boston Strangler, DeSalvo confessed to the murders of thirteen women in the Boston area. In November of 1943 at age twelve, DeSalvo was arrested for assault, battery and robbery. In December of the same year he was sent to the Lyman School for Boys. On October 1944, he was paroled and started work as a delivery boy. In August 1946, he returned to the Lyman School for stealing an automobile. After completing his second sentence, DeSalvo joined the U.S. Armed forces upon his parole. He was honorably discharged after his first tour of duty. He reenlisted and, in spite of being tried in a Court-martial, DeSalvo was honorably discharged. Between June 14, 1962, and January 4, 1964, thirteen single women (between the ages of 19 and 85) were murdered in the Boston area. All thirteen women were sexually assaulted in their apartments, then strangled with articles of clothing. Without any sign of forced entry into their dwellings, the women were assumed to either know their assailant or voluntarily allowed him into their homes." --From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
