If you think you know everything you need to know about The Boston Strangler, you are mistaken.
Stranglers is an investigative podcast that dives deep into the 13, 50-year old murder cases that were attributed to the Boston Strangler.
This podcast brought to us by Earwolf Media, LLC and Northern Light Productions and is narrated by Portland Helmich. There are 12 episodes running about 45 minutes each and the series completed in February 2017.
If you aren’t familiar with this story, the podcast will give you everything you need to know. In short, in Boston from 1962 to 1964 there were 13 horrific murders of women. The age range for these women was wide, the deaths were brutal and there are just enough similarities to convince you that they are all connected, and just different enough to make you question everything.
Just because there was a confession doesn’t mean this one is solved.
You will be gripped the whole way by the investigation, investigators, witnesses, a survivor and the actual voice of confessed killer Albert DeSalvo.
We love that the podcast takes you all the way back to the beginning and right up to the present day forensics that are happening and the ripple effect this case still has on the area and the people involved.
Lots of books have been written about this case, and if you’ve read them all, we recommend this podcast. If you’re not familiar with the case, we recommend this podcast.
This podcast has brought original research and a new voice to the victims that we enjoyed listening to and hope that society can learn from. Lock your doors, don’t ignore that feeling when something is wrong and police take complaints seriously!
