13 O’Clock Episode 224 LIVE: The Hillside Strangler Case

On this installment of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny return to the true crime well, and specifically to the serial killer heyday of the late 1970s. For several months between late 1977 and 1978, ten women and girls were found raped and strangled, dumped on the hillsides of Los Angeles. Eventually, the culprits were discovered to be a sadistic pair of killers: cousins Kenneth Bianchi and Angelo Buono, collectively known in the media as The Hillside Strangler. The case stands as one of very few instances of serial killer teams, and was the basis for several films as well. Lock your doors, gather your loved ones, and huddle around the ol’ internet as we discuss another horrific case of dual dirtbags on episode 224.

13 O’Clock Episode 97 – The Double Initial Murders / Alphabet Killer

In the early 1970s, in Rochester, New York, three little girls were raped and murdered by a suspected serial killer who might have targeted them specifically because their first and last names started with the same letter. Years later, in Los Angeles, California, four young women with double initials also turned up dead; this killer was caught, but strangely, it didn’t seem to be the same man responsible for the earlier murders. Who was the Rochester Alphabet Killer, and did he have any relationship with Los Angeles Alphabet Killer Joseph Naso? All this, plus an update on the Golden State Killer being cleared of a 1978 double murder in Simi Valley. It’s a twisting tale of alphabetical terror on episode 97 of 13 O’Clock.
