Event description

Description

Experience the true crime tale Southern Nightmare with author and podcast host Richard Foster. Thirty years ago, a serial killer terrorized the city of Richmond, Virginia, brutally raping and murdering women in their homes. Then he struck again in Arlington, Virginia, 100 miles to the north. The media called him The South Side Strangler. And he would become the first capital murder defendant in U.S. history to be caught using DNA evidence – almost a decade before the O.J. Simpson trial and long before TV shows like CSI popularized forensic science in the public consciousness. Listen to the Southern Nightmare podcast here.
