#1 The Alphabet Murders
For over three decades, “The Alphabet Murders” have puzzled officials and investigators. But now, a new suspect emerges and he’s a man that wasn’t on anyone’s radar during the height of the crime.
But what are the Alphabet Murders? There are two main series of crimes dubbed with the moniker – one near Rochester, New York and another in Los Angeles, California. The murders were labeled as such because each of the girls’ first and last name started with the same letter.
In the Rochester case, it was even more sinister because all the victims were under the age of 10. They were abducted, raped and strangled and Not only were the initials of their first and last names the same, they were also found dumped in a town that started with the same initial too.
• Carmen Colon was abducted on November 16, 1971 and found dead two days later in a town called Churchville.
#2 The Girl in the Box
The story of Colleen Stan is almost so unbelievable that even today many still wonder how she survived the ordeal.
Colleen was only 20-years old in 1977, when she decided to attend a friend’s birthday party in Northern California. She was living in Eugene, Oregon and would have to travel, an experienced hitchhiker, she let two cars pass before deciding to take a ride from Cameron and Janice Hooker. Colleen felt confident while climbing into the van because Cameron’s wife was there along with their newborn. On the way, they stopped at a gas station where Colleen used the bathroom. Deep down, a small voice told her to run away but she ignored her intuition and climbed back into the vehicle. The moment they found themselves on an isolated stretch, Cameron pulled over and put a knife to the young girls throat. He then proceeded to lock her head in a wooden box he had created which was designed to cut off light, sound and even fresh air from entering.
Apparently, the husband and wife had an agreement prior to the abduction. Cameron could abduct a sex slave which he would keep at home and act out his fetish for sexual bondage on. Up until then, it was Janice that had to endure this and she couldn’t take it any longer.
So there were a two of the most unbelievable stories around. The world can be a crazy place and Twisted Two’s is sure to show you why.
