Episode 23 The Texarkana Phantom

From late Winter to the Spring of 1946, a hooded killer dubbed 'The Phantom' terrorized the sleely Texarkana region of Texas and Arkansas. In a series of moonlight attacks mostly on youg couples parked on lover's lanes, the killer is believed to have been responsible for at least 5 deaths. The attacks were brutal, and sexual in nature. Law enforcement at the time scrambled to catch the killer before he struck again, but as suddenly as the attacks started, they ended.
The killer was never caught, but several possible suspects were identified.
Can the Citizen Detective team work with 77 year old clues to find some answers, or is the case doomed to go unsolved? Tune in to find out. Ned Dehan from Black Box online Radio is the guest in this episode.
