Based on the Albert DeSalvo case. DeSalvo was a criminal in Boston, Massachusetts, who confessed to being the "Boston Strangler", the murderer of thirteen women in the Boston area from 1962 to 1964. The M.O. of the Boston Strangler was to talk this way into victims apartments by pretending to be a maintenance man. The crimes were attributed to Albert DeSalvo based on his confession, though DeSalvo was not imprisoned for these murders, however, but for a series of rapes. His murder confession has been disputed and debate continues as to which crimes DeSalvo had actually committed. In July 2013, a DNA match between seminal fluid found at the scene of the rape and murder of Mary Sullivan and DNA obtained from DeSalvo's nephew linked DeSalvo to that crime and excluded 99.9 percent of the remaining population. Authorities exhumed DeSalvo's remains later that month and confirmed the DNA match.details revealed in court during a separate case, and DNA evidence linking him to the last murder victim. In the original investigation, parties investigating the crimes have suggested that the murders (sometimes referred to as "the silk stocking murders") were committed by more than one person.
At the end, Ben Stone mentions the death of a "Richard Speck" in prison. Richard Benjamin Speck was incarcerated at the Stateville Correctional Center in Illinois for the rape-torture murders of eight student nurses on July 13 and 14th, 1966. He died of a heart attack December 5, 1991 at the age of 49 while serving a life sentence that had been commuted from death.
