The Boston Strangler raped and murdered 13 women in the Boston area in the early 1960s. Albert DeSalvo confessed to the crimes but there remains serious doubt that he was capable of the murders. Despite major inconsistencies in his confession with the facts of the crimes, DeSalvo was sentenced to life in prison in 1967. Six years later, at Maximum Security Walpole State Prison, he was found stabbed to death. His killers were never identified. It is rumored by investigative parties that the 13 women’s murders were committed by a group of men. No further individuals have been officially linked to the killings.
