THE ALPHABET MURDERS ////// 12

The Alphabet Murders took place in Rochester, New York between 1971 and 1973 and is the unsolved murders of three young girls. Each girl had matching initials where the first letter of their first name matched the first letter of their last name and each body was found in a city or town with the same corresponding letter. While the three unsolved murders remained unsolved the case never went cold as law enforcement kept the case alive by constantly returning to their original investigations and the media's continued coverage to keep the case in the papers. 2011, Reno, Nevada, a probation officer conducting a standard monthly check up discovers a "rape diary" at the home of Joseph Naso possibly connecting him to the unsolved alphabet murders. Has the case been solved?

While it's been cold in the garage, it's fun to pretend every now and then that summer is upon us. Here's to good times and plenty of sunshine in the new year. 
Cheers!

    Love your podcast! New listener. Love your show and craft beer. I have always found a local story about Patricia Adkins interesting. It is still unsolved. Maybe you could do a podcast on this story and being this to light again. Keep up the good work. P.s. Try Southern Tier Mocha

    Love the podcast! Just listening not to my first episode. Glad to have found it. One thing, can barely hear one person's comments. When I was in the car, main voice was crystal clear and second voice just a murmur. Just sayin'. Looking forward to a binge of true crime today, thanks!

    This was a great episode but the security guard that kicked Adam Walsh out was a 17 year old GIRL! Where did you guys hear it was a male? She's pretty vocal about her regret that day and still lives down here. I don't know why you assumed it was a guy, a bit sexist on you alls part.

    I have seen information that the store manager was female but never heard about the guard. I think as far as the time period or just the nature of that job it is fair to assume male in that role. -Captain

    Dear Graham thank you for clearing that up. In the TV movie Adam the security guard was played by Christopher Wycliff. In the rest of my research it never stated the guard's name, probably because she was a minor so I assumed the movie attempted to provide an accurate portrayal. Thanks for the update, Nic

    Not to put a pin in your podcast, but how important would DNA have been in the timeframe 1971-1973? It was not used in a criminal case anywhere until 1987! big time gap.

    I grew up in Rochester, NY and, in fact, was in 3rd grade with Carmen Colon's sister, Angela. I had gone to a birthday party at their house a very short time before she was murdered. I don't think I have ever been so freaking scared about anything in my entire life. It still freaks me out to this day. We moved away from that area of Rochester a short time later, but that fear stayed with me for years.

    Yeah Rochester has had its share of scary dudes, Arthur Shawcross comes to mind. Misbegotten Son by Jack Olsen is a fantastic "in Cold Blood" type True Crime biography of sorts on the Shawcross case. "The Devil at Gennesse Junction" is also a fantastic read regarding the murder of two high school girls that met with foul play in the woods. There might be something in the water there, Nic

    Hi, am new to this podcast, its great! I love it! Have just listened to this particular episode and it struck me that its the same as 'The ABC Murders' by Agatha Christie, published in 1936, long before these killings here. In the book, there are 3 initial murders, Alice Asher in Andover, Betty Barnard in Bexhill and Carmichael Clarke in Churston. Wondering if anyone else was aware of this?
