And of those, some of the heads were never found. Police were shocked and bewildered, and when the Mayor of Cleveland brought in a prominent law man to take over, the killer only got bolder. Eighty-eight years later, no one knows who committed these heinous murders. Or do they? This is the story of the Cleveland Torso Killer.
