    (September 3, 1931-November 26, 1973)
    Known as the 'Boston Strangler'
    Killed at least a dozen women (June 14, 1962-January 4, 1964)
    Was stabbed to death in his prison cell at 42 years old (November 26, 1973)
    Tony Curtis played him in the movie about the Boston Strangler
    He was arrested for breaking and entering (1961).
    During his arrest, he confessed that he was the 'Measuring Man' who was wanted by the police.
    His scam was to knock on women's doors and offer them a job as a model, if they had the right measurements.
    If they agreed, he would measure them and say that his office would get back to them.
    He was sentenced to 18 months in prison.
    Two months later, he started his career as the Boston Strangler.
    He entered women's homes by posing as an official capacity (e.g. painter, detective).
    He would sexually abuse and then strangle his victims with a piece of their clothing.
    Sometimes he would also bludgeon, stab and bite his victims.
    After murdering them, he would pose the bodies in obscene positions to add to the shock of those who discovered the body.
    He was sentenced to life in prison (1967).
    There are some questions as to whether De Salvo was the actual Boston Strangler, because he was known to brag.
    Being a good family man and knowing he was going to spend a long time in jail, he sold his story to the news and take care of his wife and children.
    He never could explain why he did it, saying he just got a strange feeling and felt compelled to act on it.
    He was happily married, a hard worker, and appeared to be mild mannered.
    He never took material possessions from his victims.
    He is left handed.
