In 1968, the editor of a small town paper received a phone call. The voice on the other end provided the names and locations of three dead women. Knowing there was a mass murder on the loose terrified the community. But many questions remained. Was the monster a friend or neighbor? Would they kill again? And could the community overcome racial differences in the segregated south to catch a killer? Join Olivia Cornu and John Conner as they dive deep into the dark to discuss South Carolina's Gaffney Strangler. Will this case be enough to make you check the locks?
