Between 1967 and 1971, the small city of Stamford, Connecticut was terrorized by a little-known serial killer. A total of five Black women were strangled – most with their own brassieres – and dumped within a 750-yard stretch of the Merritt Parkway. While a colorful local character was eventually arrested and prosecuted for the crimes (sound familiar?), doubts linger to this day about who was behind these women’s fate.
This week Sean takes us through the facts of the case in the Bra Murders, and the public outrage that grew around the investigation as Stamford’s Black community wondered if the wheels of justice would have moved any faster for white victims.
