The Phantom Killer
Unlocking the Mystery of the Texarkana Serial MurdersDownloadable Audiobook - 2015
The salacious and scandalous murders of a series of couples on Texarkana's "lovers lanes" created a media maelstrom and cast a pall of fear over an entire region. What is even more surprising is that the case has remained cold for decades. Combining archival research and investigative journalism, Pulitzer Prize'nominated historian James Presley reveals evidence that provides crucial keys to unlocking this decades-old puzzle.Although the case lives on today on television, the Internet, a revived fictional movie, and even an off-Broadway play, with so much of the investigation shrouded in mystery since 1946, rumors and fractured facts have distorted the reality. Now, for the first time, a careful examination of the archival record, personal interviews, and stubborn fact checking come together to produce new insights and revelations on the old slayings.
