The Boston Strangler was a serial killer who murdered as many as 13 women in the Boston area between 1962 and 1964. The killer's first victim was strangled in her apartment on June 14, 1962. During the following months, several other elderly women were murdered in similar circumstances. In 1965 Albert DeSalvo, an inmate, confessed to the murders, but evidence didn’t support his claims.
