On May 12, 1978, a woman is assaulted and
brutally murdered in her home. It happened in broad daylight, as
her husband lunched with friends, and neighbors bustled in and
out of their houses.
Two nearby women have encounters with a
strange man and remember him. Neither would have believed that
they would be the only living survivors able to identify who was
then an unknown serial killer in the midst of his most deadly
killing frenzy. The two become part of a police investigation
that ends up a cold case.
It wasn’t until 2007, when a detective
working another murder ran a new DNA analysis on a piece of
evidence, that a computer registers a hit on the killer’s
identity. This led to a convicted rapist who had no prior
murder charges. Thus began the unmasking of a serial killer of
nine women, and resolved sixty rapes and robberies.
story of the dark life of Timothy Krajcir, who hunted his
victims in parking lots and neighborhoods, ends with his
sentencing at a federal courthouse in Cape Girardeau, Missouri
on April 4, 2008.
