The Austin, Texas Servant Girl Annihilator - Solved?

The excellent PBS series History Detectives makes a special investigation into one of American history's forgotten and most brutal serial murderers. The entire episode is available for free. The investigators make some great insight's into how crime was handled in the late 19th and early 20th century. This case is also a great example of what can happen when public pressure is applied to criminal investigations. Watch this show!

An engaging show. I was left wondering whether they made the show because they discovered some interesting leads, or whether they discovered the leads while making the show (I suspect the former, although the film is presented as though the latter is true). It definitely showcases the value of good physical evidence.


P.S. Nice to see you back Inspector! :)
