Overview

History’s most infamous killers are often the most allusive. Cold Cases recounts in fascinating detail the story of how these crimes have been – often miraculously – solved. These are criminals who were tracked down after years of believing that they had, literally, got away with murder: Dennis Rader, better known as ‘BTK’, the serial killer who signed his taunting letters with the initials that stood for ‘Bind, Torture, Kill’, his horrifying method of murder; or Gary Leon Ridgeway, aka The Green River Killer, who was finally tracked down after many years, and is

now thought to be America’s most prolific serial killer ever.

Other killers include Danny Keith Hooks, who murdered five prostitutes in a crack house, and Joe Clark, a psychotic teenager who liked to break the bones of younger boys before putting them to death. They, like the others, escaped justice for a long time but, finally, the long arm of the law reached out and slammed them behind bars.
