In 1962 and 1963, 3 teenagers were murdered in an area of Northeast Ohio. Marion Brubaker, Thomas Sumerix, and Ruth Guthrie all disappeared and all three were found murdered. The police had little to go on. None of the three victims had an apparent connection to each other.

Join Mike and Gibby as they discuss these three murders and the investigations that followed. Were all three murders the work of one predator? Many people believe that at least two of the victims were killed by the same person. Police had a promising suspect in one of the murders, but they could never put enough together to charge this person. Can advances in DNA technology help solve these murders that occurred almost 60 years ago?
