33. The Stocking Strangler Part 2// Carlton Gary

March 12, 2018

From September of 1977 to February of 1978, a serial killer is terrifying the town of Columbus, Georgia.  He has already murdered six elderly women in an upscale neighborhood and police are no closer to catching him.  The killings stop suddenly but a new element of fear has entered in his place, a group calling themselves the “Forces of Evil” began threatening to kill black women in Columbus if the Stocking Strangler was not caught.  Time is of the essence because the woman the organization claims to be holding hostage was reported missing.  Needing to act fast, police bring in FBI profiler Robert Ressler to assist them.  Using his years of experience he quickly puts together a profile pointing not to a group of seven men but to one.  Police start finding bodies and start to wonder if they have a second serial killer operating in the Columbus area. Join us while we continue to sort through the strange case of the Stocking Strangler.

32. The Stocking Strangler Part 1// Carlton Gary

March 11, 2018

In the fall of 1977, a string of horrific attacks hit the city of Columbus, Georgia.  White elderly women, all widows, living alone in an upscale neighborhood in Columbus were being brutally beaten, raped, and strangled with stockings.  These murders shocked the community and despite massive police presence, the killings continued for several months.  With racial tensions in the city at a high, a mysterious group called the "Forces of Evil" began taunting the police, threatening to kill black Columbus citizens if the strangler wasn't stopped.  Will the police catch the Stocking Strangler before he claims his next victim? Who are the Forces of Evil and will they really kill citizens to send a message? Join us while we discuss a case that has recently been brought back into the news with the Stocking Stranglers execution date set for March 15, 2018.
